I'm wide awake and so alive
Ringing like a bell
Tell me this is paradise
And not some place I fell
My skin like scars
Cause I keep on falling down

I wanna feel the car crash
I wanna feel the capsize
I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
Till I'm satisfied

I wanna feel the car crash
Cause I'm dying on the inside
I wanna let go and know that
I'll be alright, alright

Push me til I have to fly
I've she'd my skin, my scars
Take me deep out past the lights
Where nothing dims these stars
Nothing dims these stars

I wanna feel the car crash
I wanna feel the capsize
I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
Til I'm satisfied

I wanna feel the car crash
Cause I'm dying on the inside
I wanna let go and know that
I'll be alright, alright

So right
So wrong
I'm wide awake and so alive

I wanna feel the car crash
I wanna feel the capsize
I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop
Til I'm satisfied

I wanna feel the car crash
Cause I'm dying on the inside
I wanna let go and know that
I'll be alright, alright

Cause I'm open wide
So right, so right

    I feel our guy is so alive that is not afraid of the death as he is already dead inside. He wants to feel everything that brings death and finally open his eyes in the paradise. He is done with his life, lived in his skin with the scars that he doesn't bother about now... He is wide awake.. He feels he can't be more alive than this!!!

    To me this song is about needing to feel alive again. To feel something when you've felt empty for so long. I have no idea if thats what he met by it by this song speaks to me in ways a song hast in so long i cant stop sining it.

    A lonely day. A boring lonely day. Bad faces around you. Long hours in a bus stop. Cold coffee. Routine. And you just wanna fly, go away, discover new places, feel new sensations, fall in love again ... Feel alive (:

    Even though they have been hurt to many times in past, they cant let those things stop them from doing the things they want to do. =]
