Wait another minute.
Can't you see what this pain has fucking done to me.
I'm alive and still kicking.
What you see I can't see and maybe
You'll think before you speak.

(chorus)
I'm alive. for you,
I'm awake. Because of you,
I'm alive. I told you,
I'm awake swallowing you alive!

Take another second.
Turn your back on me and make believe, that
You're always happy.
It's safe to say you're never alive.
A big part of you has died and by the way,
I hope you're satisfied.

I'm alive. For you,
I'm awake. Because of you,
I'm alive. I told you,
I'm awake swallowing you alive!
For you, I'm awake
Because of you,
I'm alive. I told you I'm awake.

Tearing it back unveiling me.
Taking a step back so I can breathe.
Hear the silence about to break.
Fear resistance when I'm awake.

Tearing it back unveiling me.
Taking a step back so I can breathe.
Hear the silence about to break.
Fear resistance when I'm awake.

Alive for you.
I'm awake, because of you
I'm alive, I told you
I'm awake swallowing you
I'm alive, i told you
I'm awake
Because of you
I'm alive, I told you I'm awake

Swallowing you alive

    What relevance is either one of your comments to the Awake lyrics meanings:
    ? Hey people, this isn't facebook. No message board here. Explain WHAT you believe this song is about. We all know it kicks ass...The song explains how someone feels after being rejected by another person, that they have obviously loved very much. Rejection is extremely difficult to handle. And Salvatore is making a strong attempt to convey these feelings to other people that may be going through this.
