An Awakening

"I just...I just don't feel like myself..."
"How do you mean?"
"Well...It's like I'm not even here, it's like this is all a dream..."
"Who's to say it isn't?"
"What are you saying?"
"Who's to say we all aren't living a dream?"
"And you're okay with that?"
"Are you?"
"...No."

The easiest thing is falling asleep,
The hardest is waking up.
That spell that's cast over you,
You believe you're heading the right way
Then you slam head first into reality.
You wonder, did you suddenly stray?
Were you ever heading the right way at all?
Was it all a lie...
You just told yourself to get through the time...

Wake up, Take control
Even when there's nothing at all.
Don't fear the end, that fateful fall,
Just remember you can control the jump.
Is this all? Is this the end?
Wake up and find yourself again.
Is this the end?
Wake up, wake up, wake up again!

We've all felt the heartbreak of loss,
That hollowness that rips away at our chests,
Eventually it goes away...or so we believe.
But is it all a dream?
A fantasy we tell ourselves to just face the other way...
The tears won't fall if nothing happened at all,
Is that what we see? Nothing at all?

Where it this line of reality?
Where's the edge that keeps us from diving?
Or are we already gone...
The world needs an awakening,
We're all swimming in our comas,
Who's monitoring the beds?

Wake up, Take control
Even when there's nothing at all.
Don't fear the end, that fateful fall,
Just remember you can control the jump.
Is this all? Is this the end?
Wake up and find yourself again.
Is this the end?
Wake up, wake up, wake up again!

We have the ability for our voice to be heard,
Will it be heard at all?
Make it heard, scream at the top of sky scrapers,
Voice your opinions, don't be afraid anymore.
Awake the sleeping and the dead,
Let's take over this world once again!
May the trumpets sound,
The world is coming to an end!

Wake up, Take control!
Even when there's nothing at all.
Wake up, Take control!
Even when there's nothing at all.
Is this all? Is this the end?
Wake up and find yourself again.
Is this the end?
Wake up, wake up, wake up again!
Again! Take control again! AGAIN!
