Hey... You're awake.
And you keeps you where you wanted to be known.
That's alright, You know that you've been framed.
All the way.
And it keeps you where you wanted to be known
But that's alright, you're only human, boy
Take your inhibitions going home.
Walk on home, boy!

Hey! You're awake!
And that keeps you where you're wanting to be owned.
That's alright, you're only evil
'Eh' all the way!
And it keeps you where you wanting to be owned.
That's alright, you're only human boy
So stay a while...

All the world's a stage and we are home again, home again
All the world's afraid, but we are home again, home again
Away from home? WAIT!

I died a little (WAITING! WAITING! WAIT!)
I died a little (WAITING! WAITING! WAIT!)

I want to be set free,
On the road again for you and me.
Tell your partner that you'll be on the way
Get up, get up, get up
WE'RE FAR TOO OLD TO WHINE ABOUT IT!

Hey, you're awake.
And it keeps you where you've wanted to be known.
That's alright, We knew we knew the way... All the way.
And it keeps us where we wanted to be on time...

Oh, then sooner or later it comes...
And we're free!
I'm free!
I'm free!

All the world's a stage and we are home again, home again
All the world's afraid, but we are home again, home again
Away from home? WAIT!

I died a little (WAITING! WAITING! WAIT!)
I died a little (WAITING! WAITING! WAIT!)
I died a little (WAITING! WAITING! WAIT!)

I want to be set free
on the bond again for you and for me.
Without a haunted song we'd be all alone
So get up, get up, get up, get up,
NOW DECONSTRUCT!


All the worlds afraid....all the worlds afraid...


And we looked up to the stars last night
And I saw that maybe...there was nothing more?
...and my thought turned!

    Song Meaning:It's all about self awareness, and becoming an improved self, and leaving behind an old self. Like everything from Devin it has meaning, and like most things from this particular period of his work it's about change and rebirth. It's incredibly potent and meaningful being part of the Ki, Addicted and Deconstructed trilogy of albums.

    General Comment:Though Devin says he doesn't want to bring religion and politics to his songs, he sure keeps alluring to an afterlife (or deities) quite often.
