Wake me up.
It feels like I've been sleeping since New Years day,
Dreaming my life away.
Please try to understand if you think I've changed.
And all my friends they say I waste too much time staring out of windows in airplanes.
No no I won't take the aisle seat.

Just take me away with blood and bravery.
I am the ever green that breaks the storm.
Sing hallelujah I sold my soul to the darkening.

Just tell me why do I keep myself when I know I'm still walking blind.
I'll just keep myself in bed.
And I'm the only fool that runs away from anything thats good for me,
But don't you dare keep in your prayers.

Just take me away with blood and bravery.
I am the ever green that breaks the storm.
Sing hallelujah I sold my soul to the darkening.

Happy New Year, hope I make it through.
Happy New Year, hope to see you soon.

Just take me away with blood and bravery.
I am the ever green that breaks the storm.
Sing hallelujah I sold my soul to the darkening.

    General Commentwow. just...wow. no comments? this song has amazing rhythm. the lyrics are kind of foggy though. he sounds depressed. maybe he gets lost in "fantasy land" too much and neglects his friends.

    General Commentthis is an AMAZING song, one of my favs off the album.

    ok, to me this song is about a person who lost the battle on whether to give up or keep trying. ("sold my soul to the darkening" allusion to cue the sun when he says "please don't think i plan to lose to the night")

    so he's given up and he's still crying out to his friends to understand that he hasn't really given up on life, but he just couldnt fight anymore. and that now he's scared to try again. he doesn't want to lose out on anything, and the fear of doing so is keeping him from trying at all. ("only fool that runs away from anything thats good for me") and he doesnt want to be kept in prayers...he wants somone to actually DO something about it and help him.

    just what i think.
