"Falling Awake" as written by Johnny Lee Andrews and Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen....
Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defense

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

    General CommentThis probably isn't the intended meaning of the song, but I think one of the things that's great about music is that songs can mean different things to different people...

    I dealt with a drug addiction for a while, and I'm finally getting through it. Being sober, I feel like I'm waking up from a long drug-induced coma ("Falling awake from the walking sleep"). The moment you realize what you have been doing to your life, and accept the responsibility to overcome it ("In this moment I am just becoming/Liberated from my cell of nothing../Overcome oblivion").

    The chorus shows optimism for the future: the addiction is nothing but a bad memory that I have learned from ("And all that remains is the dying memory"). I'm free to start really living my life ("And now I can dive for these dreams I make").

    Finally, a pledge to never, ever go back to the addiction ("There is no returning to that emptiness
    /Loneliness").

    Again, I'm sure this wasn't the songwriters' meaning, but that's what the song says to me.

    Song MeaningSomehow I feel that this is related to I Feel Immortal. The previously mentioned song could be about falling into depression or suffering from it.

    This song, I believe, would be about being treated for her depression, and becoming happy again. After overcoming it, and not wanting to go back to it after all that's been done for her.
