Gary Jules – Falling Awake lyrics
Eagle in the dark,
Feathers in the pages.
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattling their cages.

Found a way to blue
And another ghost to follow.
Said, "It's only up to you"
And that's the hardest pill to swallow.

You never get to choose;
You live on what they sent you
And you know they're gonna use
The things you love against you.

One foot in the grave,
One foot in the shower.
There's never time to save;
You're paying by the hour.

And that's just the way it goes.
Falling awake
And that's just the way it goes.

Slipping through the bars,
Aware of the danger
Of riding in the cars,
Taking candy from strangers.

And you're never out of hand,
Never out of pocket.
I'm supersonic man;
Do you wanna buy a rocket?

Oh that's just the way it goes.
Falling awake, falling awake
And that's just the way it goes.
Falling awake, falling awake

Eagle in the dark,
Feathers in the pages.
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattling their cages.

I could learn to play the game,
I could learn to run the hustle
If I only had the brains,
The money or the muscle.
