"Awake" Lyrics [edit]
by A Billion Ernies | from the album Dumpster Generation
 

I HAD A DREAM YOU MEANT EVERYTHING TO ME AND NOTHING IN THE WORLD MATTERED. IN THIS DREAM, I COULD FEEL YOU THERE, AND YOU LOVED ME BACK, AND I KNEW IT. BUT YOUR SOFT VOICE TURNED TO SCREACHING BEEPS. IíM AWAKE. WHEN I AWOKE, MY HEART WAS BROKE, I DIDNíT FEEL RIGHT. MY EYES WERE BURNING, THOUGH ADJUSTING TO A SOFTER LIGHT. NOT ARTIFICIAL FLOURESCENCE KILLING THE DARKNESS, THE KIND THAT HUMBLES ME BY SHOWING IíM A PART OF IT. THESE DAYS, WE WALK THESE STREETS NOT DEAD OR ALIVE. AND I THOUGHT THE BATTLE WAS OVER. I THOUGHT THAT I SURVIVED. HAUNTING MEMORIES OF LIFE ONCE LIVED, AND PEOPLE WHO LOVED ME. WHERE HAVE THEY ALL GONE? WHY AM I SO LONELY? MY PASTOR TOLD ME THERE WOULD BE STREETS OF GOLD IN HEAVEN, BUT WHEN I LEAVE THIS PLACE I NEVER WANT TO SEE GOLD AGAIN. WHY WOULD GOD TRANSCENDING EVERYTHING MATERIAL CREATE A KINGDOM BOASTING EARTHLY STATUS SYMBOLS? SLEEP IS THE ONLY PLACE FOR PEACE. I JUST CLOSE MY EYES, AND I CAN BE WITH HIM. I CAN FEEL ALIVE. THIS WORLDíS HATRED SEEMS LESS REAL WHEN LOVE IS MY REALITY. BUT AS MORNING COMES EVER SO SLOWLY, THE SUN RAYS CREEP INTO MY ROOM. IíM AWAKE. WE PRAISE GOD

FOR ALL HIS POWER AND OMNIPOTENCE, BUT HAVE THE GALL TO CLAIM HE CAME TO JUST ONE CONTINENT, AND JUST ONE PEOPLE IN AN INFINITE CREATION. YOUíD BETTER STOP TO THINK BEFORE YOU CLAIM YOU KNOW HIM.
