Lying awake, lost in time
With no reason to turn around and put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

At age 14, no inhibitions
And I sure as hell did not need your permission
Never looking forward, and I was never looking back
And I'd never known what's next

But as the days had gone by
Both ignorant and blind
New visions of a world started filling my eyes
Tossing and turning with eyes open wide
That is where I find

I'm lying awake, lost in time
With no reason to turn around and put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

Years go by as we start to see
So many generations torn by poverty and greed
So many whining that their lives are oh so bad
But far better than so many, it's sad

Becoming intoxicated by all of the madness
And all of the pain that they've been through
Hoping and searching, a world in despair
Right outside, no more

Lying awake, lost in time
With no reason to turn around and put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

There's just got to some other way
The people are dying today
There's just got to be some other time
That they are going to find

There's just got to be some sort of progress
Some other way they're going to know
There's just got to be another means to an end
Here's to hoping that it will show

Wake up

Like some people in our society
And it grows, planted like a seed
So what do we do when it comes down on you
Cries ring out as a chime for awakening

Taking time as you go, maybe don't turn away
Maybe showing interest could show them light of day
Light of day

Well, it's a pretty fine line as community paces
(Whoa, can't you see their faces?)
Stepping up to the edge daily different cases
(Whoa, can't you see their faces?)

Well, it's a pretty fine line as community paces
(Whoa, can't you see their faces?)
Stepping up to the edge daily different cases
(Whoa, can't you see their faces?)

Third world tragedy, another in store
(Oh, can't you see their faces coming around?)
Another taste of what's real, can they take anymore?
(So many faces different places with so many face down)

Another third world tragedy, another in store
(Oh, can't you see their faces coming around?)
Another taste of what's real, can they take anymore?
(So many faces different places with so many face down)

Lying awake, lost in time
With no reason to turn around and put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

Lying awake, lost in time
With no reason to turn around and put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

Im lying awake
