"New Day" as written by Ian Kenny, Mark Hosking, Andrew Goddard, Stephen Judd and Jonathan / Stockman....
How did they find me?
How did they know?
This misconception of fate
I'm about to let go

Awake in a new light, I'm
Alone in this room
Heavy at heart, it may be a lie
You will not see me

It's a new day
(Why did they follow me home?)
It's a new day

One
More
Step, it's
Here waiting for you, now
Go
Slow, take your time

Leave
No
Mark
You lost your way
I hope you're watching me

One
More
Step, it's
Here waiting for you, now
Go
Slow, take your time

Celebrating
For the one so free
You lost your way
No-one held you back from me

How do you all
Speak
With a lying tongue?
How do we all
Sleep
With a dying sun?

Sit down
Lighten your own
This storm is coming
You should stay home
But I feel warm

Hey, let's get lost in the crowd, while
Searching for something worth holding
Hey, let's get still lost in the crowd
I'll show you so much more
Much more
So much more
So much more

Are we waiting?
For the savior?
Someone to heal this
Or erase us

How did they find me?
How did they know?
This misconception of fate
I'm about to let go

Awake in a new light, I'm
Alone in this room
Heavy at heart, it may be a lie
You will not see me

It's a new day
It's a new day
It's a new day

Are we waiting?
For the savior?
I'm so sick of waiting
I've been waiting my whole life

This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day

    General CommentIt means what it means to you but to me it's about hope as long as you are prepared to take the step, whatever it takes to create a new day. "Awake in this new light, I'm alone in this room" means there is no one with me, but I'm not coming back to where I was. And then there's the following line - "are we waiting, for the saviour, I'm so sick of waiting, I've been waiting, my whole life" which says I'm not waiting any longer,I'm going to change what is and if I have to do it myself, I will. Inspirational.

    General CommentSimple Boy is coming to terms with his consciousness. he's awake and alone. Goliath (the keepers of his prison) found him, and stripped him of everything he felt was important.

    a New Day, he is now travelling the path to his freedom. Simple Boy realizes that others are watching. some are trying to keep him from achieving his freedom. some are merely wanting to be saved.

    Simple Boy is hoping that the few people that he actually wants to follow are able to watch what he's doing, provided they stop waiting for someone else to save them and instead make the effort to save themselves.

    Lyric CorrectionI hear this:
    "Sit down, lighten your own
    This storm is coming, you should stay home
    But I feel warm"

    as this:
    "Sit down, lighten your load
    This storm is coming, you should stay home
    But I fear you won't."

    General CommentI agree, He has been waiting for 'god' (although they never say "god") to change his life,
    "I'm so sick of waiting, i've been waiting my whole life"
    Its time to take your life out of 'gods' hands and put it into your own.

    My InterpretationOkay so I suffer from the disease of addiction and found my way to recovery. I’ve been on both sides of the fence. So when I heard this song this is automatically how I felt it related to me and how I interoperated the song. Some people may completely understand it, some may have no idea or clue to what im saying. It all comes down to your experience.

    How did they find me? --------> Because they know where you will end up
    How did they know? ----------> Because they have been there!
    This misconception of fate ----> That you can’t beat this addiction, a forever empty vessel
    I’m about to let go --------> Giving in to your moment of clarity

    Awake in a new light -------> Off of drugs, Sober
    I’m alone in this room ----->Emotional, Feeling crazy because you are actually feeling
    Heavy at heart, it may be a lie -->Feeling heart strong, but your head is trying to convert back to familiar
    You will not see me ----> Isolating, being scared to show anyone who you are

    It’s a New Day -----> Your eyes were close, but they have finally opened
    (Why did they follow me home)? -> The arrogant thoughts that will try to steal what you’ve gained
    It’s a New Day ----> Realizing, understanding, accepting
    One more step -----> Believing, Willing, Trusting
    It’s hear waiting for you -----> New perspective, New Light, A Hallejuah!
    Now go slow, Take your time -----> Patience, experience everything

    Leave no mark ----> You wont let this addiction be and take all of you
    You lost your way -----> It happens, you can turn it around
    I hope you’re watching me -----> you can relate and demonstrate
    One more step ----> Leap of faith
    It’s here waiting for you ----> Life, Love, Happiness, Freedom
    Now go slow, Take your time ----> Be patient, it doesn’t happen all at once

    Celebrating for the one so free ----> Observing the way this “one” feels(feeling incurable when you think if this could be you)
    You lost your way ----> It happens, and your already back on track
    No one held you back from me ----> Only you held yourself back from a Higher Power

    How do you all speak ----> Being angry, frustrated, and sad
    With a lying tongue? --> Being afraid to accept the truth, and fearing change
    How do we all sleep -----> Finding strength to surrender and recover
    With a dying sun? ----> When so many can’t or don’t get the chance?

    Sit down, Lighten your own ----> Relax, Try not to take yourself to seriously
    This storm is coming --> Emotions, Feeling, thoughts
    You should stay home --> Listen, be open minded
    But I feel warm----> Alive, In the moment! (But stay humble)

    Hey lets get lost in a crowd --> Lose the insanity, Allow yourself
    While searching for something worth holding --> Follow the crowd, Seek passion
    Hey lets get lost in a crowd ----> Makes connections with people, Trust in your mind body and soul
    I’ll show you so much more ----> Trust in me, I can help
    Much more, much more -----> ignite the engine, feel alive!

    Are we waiting for the savior? ---> Are we searching for him?
    Someone to heal this or erase us ----> Do you reach out and allow him?
    I’m so sick of waiting-----> Have you ever done your part?
    I’ve been waiting my whole life ---> Desperate enough to stand up and make a change

    This is a New Day -----> I’m Grateful
    This is a New Day ----> I’m Happy
    This is a New Day ----> I’m Free

    General Commentmmm, yeah. I agree too.

    I especially love the line, 'hey, let's get lost in the crowd,' because it's kind of like, 'hey, let's be anonymous, even if it's just for a little while.'

    This is one of my favourites from the album, and the one that gets stuck in my head the most.

    Why did they follow me home...?

    General CommentTo me its about self redemption.Getting out of the hole that has been your life with 'a new day'.
    the lines " How do you all speak, with a lying tongue?
    How do we all sleep, with a dying sun? " Is the best part of the song for me.also the solo/riffing part at the close is a killer

    General CommentFor me, the stand-out from Sound Awake, thus far. Which is a hard thing to say, as it's an album which really ought to be listened to in full, rather than on a song by song basis.
