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!
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!
There's just got to some other way, those people are dying today
There's just got to be some other time, that they are going to ?nd
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 the time to listen up, maybe don't turn away
Maybe showing interest could show them light of day
(Can't you see their faces)
Well it's a pretty fine line as community paces
Stepping up to the edge daily different cases
(Oh can't you see their faces coming around, so many faces,
Different places with so many face down)
Third world tragedy, another in store
Another taste of what's real, can they take anymore?
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
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!
I'm lying awake!
