Tearstained – Not Quite Awake lyrics

Slowly waking, that moment awaking
Unconscious fading, conscious awakening
But I can't move - I'm frozen in place
I feel paralyzed - Body unresponsive

What is it?

Cannot move, cannot seem to wake up
Cannot seem to get my body to react
Heart rate climbing, chest is pounding
Pulse is racing, between conscious states

What is it?
Something hypnogogic?
What is it?

What she did to me had some effect on me
I seemed to achieve some sort of lucidity

Fading out of sleep and slowly coming awake
Being conscious and unable to move my body

What is it? Something hypnogogic?

Not Quite Awake [x4]
