Wake me up inside
Tell me there's a reason
Take another step to get off my knees and follow this path of most resistance
And wherever it takes us
Whatever it faces
And wherever it meets

So wake me when it's through
I don't wanna feel the things that you do
(the things that you do)
Don't worry I'll be fine
I just don't want this dream
Wake me up inside

Something for the pain
Just to kill this feeling
Although we look awake, inside were still were all still sleeping
I spent my time here alive
But barely there

Do you believe we`ll ever make it
Do you think we`ll ever really see

So wake me when it's through
I don't wanna feel the things that you do
(the things that you do)
Don't worry I'll be fine
I just don't want this dream
Wake me up inside


Wake me up inside
These dreams all die if we let them
Wake me up inside
Today wont start if we just give in
Coz you wont be anything (?)

So wake me when it's through
I don't wanna feel the things that you do
(the things that you do)
Don't worry I'll be fine
I just don't want this dream
Wake me up inside

    i think its about pursueing either a dream or taking up a challenge life has presneted. Also the realisation that the road to achieving it is very difficult, but not matter what, no matter how difficult or painful you keep going forward knowing that with each step you take, youll get stronger and learn to deal with that level of difficulty.
