Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

Your life has stalled somewhere
And you just sit and stare
And as each day (each day) runs away (runs away)
Children scream as you lay waiting

They must think,
“What is worse: not being loved
Or not loving anything at all?”

Wake up
Wake up
I hope you ignite what thrives inside
Break through
You’ve got to find a way to feel alive, alive again

Or would you rather watch the world
From you windowsill
Like the animal you became?
Or maybe tear your nails from your cuticles
As the devil praises your name?

Remember: no one will ever ask how young you are
So please
Wake up and find someway to find yourself

I hope you ignite what thrives inside
Break through
You’ve got to find a way to feel alive, alive again

I hope you ignite what thrives inside
Break through
You’ve got to find a way to feel alive, alive again

Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

    General CommentSee for us it’s like no one is really happy anymore
    It’s like we all try so hard to search and seek relief from ourselves
    We try so hard to put ourselves in those spaces
    In that state of being, that feeling
    And it’s sad, it’s sad by definition
    It’s that dragging, the stringing along, chained up with your own confusions
    Where you’re so fucking lost you can barely even face it another day, another moment, another minute
    Like you’re stuck in some dreamless state
    An amnesiac wandering, sleepwalking through a waking world
    We are all like messengers,
    We’re all … sinners… adrift
    And it tears you apart

    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up

    Your life has stalled somewhere
    And you just sit and stare
    As each day (each day) runs away (runs away)
    Children scream as you lay waiting

    They must think,
    What is worse, not being loved?
    Or not loving anything at all?

    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    I hope you ignite what thrives inside
    Break through
    You've got to find a way to feel alive (alive again)

    Or would you rather watch the world
    From you windowsill
    [Like] the animal you became?
    [Or maybe] tear your nails from your cuticles
    [As] the devil praises your name?

    Oh, no one will ever ask how young you are
    So please, wake up
    So please, find someway to … (find/please/praise) yourself

    I hope you ignite what thrives inside
    Break through
    You've got to find a way to feel alive, alive again

    I hope you ignite what thrives inside
    Break through
    You've got to find a way to feel alive (alive again)

    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up

    General CommentThis song is about striving to get where and what you want in life instead of sitting on the couch and leting time and things pass you by.
