Wake up, wake up....

Turn on the water
Close the door
I won't let you tear me down
Just another moment
When the sound of your voice
Cuts me to the ground

Locked in here just to make
Myself feel better
Look in the mirror
And tell myself that I'm okay
I know it doesn't matter
Whatever I do
It's always second best

I gotta free my mind

Exactly what you wanted
You opened me up
The secrets I confessed

Wake up, wake up

I'm not here just to
Make you feel better
Stroke your ego
Live happy ever after

I'm not sleeping
And I ain't dreaming
And I ain't fooled anymore
I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping
Anymore

So many times
I wanted to go
But I just lost my way
Watching you unravelling
The last piece of thread
That held me into place

I don't care if you hear a word
I'm saying
I can only hear
The voices screaming in my head

I'm not sleeping
And I ain't dreaming
And I ain't fooled anymore
I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping

I done beat your game
But I'm not even sleeping no more, I'm not even tired
And I'm sick of dreaming pain
Tossing and turning all night and waking wide up
Now I'm really looking at the door should've made this move before
I can't take this anymore
I don't want no more nightmares in the night
No not tonight
I already seen the light
I gotta free my mind
And wake up, wake up

I'm not sleeping
And I ain't dreaming
And I ain't fooled anymore
Wake up
I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping

I done beat your game
But I'm not even sleeping no more, I'm not even tired
Go to wake up
I done beat your game
But I'm not even sleeping no more, I'm not even tired

I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping
Anymore
