The Devin Townsend Project – Awake lyrics

Hey, you're awake
And you keeps you where you wanted to be known
That's alright, you know that you've been framed
All the way
And it keeps you where you wanted to be known
But that's alright, you're only human, boy
Take your inhibitions going home
Walk on home, boy

Hey, you're awake
And that keeps you where you're wanting to be owned
That's alright, you're only evil
'Eh' all the way
And it keeps you where you wanting to be owned
That's alright, you're only human boy
So stay a while

All the world's a stage and we are home again, home again
All the world's afraid, but we are home again, home again
Away from home
Wait!

I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)
I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)

I want to be set free
On the road again for you and me
Tell your partner that you'll be on the way
Get up, get up, get up
We're far too old to whine about it

Hey, you're awake
And it keeps you where you've wanted to be known
That's alright, we knew we knew the way, all the way
And it keeps us where we wanted to be on time

Oh, then sooner or later it comes
And we're free
I'm free
I'm free

All the world's a stage and we are home again, home again
All the world's afraid, but we are home again, home again
Away from home?
Wait!

I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)
I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)
I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)

I want to be set free
On the bond again for you and for me
Without a haunted song we'd be all alone
So get up, get up, get up, get up
Now deconstruct

All the world's afraid, all the world's afraid

And we looked up to the stars last night
And I saw that maybe
There was nothing more?
And my thought turned!
