"Rude Awakening" as written by Thomas Victor, Ted Parsons and Paul Raven....
Another rude awakening.
The hard life that's been our school.
More of a cruel day's reckonings.
Our prime time used up too soon.
There is no kindness to waste
Why help those crying for more?
It spins you around, takes you for a ride.
What is the point to even try?
Somehow got to learn to accept the rejection.
The tired thoughts from troubling.
A weary mind from worrying.
Your constant fears upon wakening.
Your real life left in your dreams.

    General CommentFrom the time of the release of this album and it's really well-done retro-Russian look, I have taken this entire album as a meditation on the shattered illusions of post-Soviet Russia and Eastern Europe.

    This song, also the title of the album, really seems to speak directly to that. It also speaks to pushing forward anyway, acknowledging the pain whil also being determined to strive anyway.

    A powerful song, an underrated album, by a very underrated band that might be one of the best bands in metal. I've always appreciated how their lyrics speak to things that are real and situations that adult humans find themselves in while trying to do right, make sense and strive for truth. Lyricist/guitarist/singer Tommy Victor earns the lion's share of that credit.
