"The Awakening" as written by and Martin Handsley/hughes Cooper....
I wake up in the basement
I'm so hungry
I'm dry
I must be here sleep walking
Musn't I?

Getting up from my easy chair
Looking for my wife
Following a trail of crimson spots
That lead into the night
Suddenly I realize
I see it all through real eyes
These crimson spots are dripping
From my hand
And ooh
It makes me feel like a man

    General CommentHe's not twisted. I don't believe his lyrics always reflect his lifestyle.

    General CommentThe song is based on a Nightmare Alice had, in which he killed his wife.

    Actually the entire album is based on it.

    Hence we have "Welcome to My Nightmare"

    General CommentOkay so Steven passed out, and then woke up in the basement. He's looking for his wife. Instead, what he finds are a bunch of bloodstains. You guessed it. They lead to Steven's diarrhea explosion in the tub, sink, and toilet. He feels like a man because he didn't realize that much poop could come out of him.
