try to treat it like a dream, make it better than it seems,
half-convinced until you wake up screaming..

what was lost along the way, disappeared without a trace,
hardly missed until you
+++++ wake up screaming, torn from dreaming
+++++ of all the love you’ve left behind,
+++++ wake up screaming, unbelieving,
+++++ can’t you see I’ve tried?
+++ now I’m awake, yeah I’m wide awake,
+++ now I’m awake..

something strong to kill the pain, poetry or novacaine,
a bitter kiss, and you will
+++++ wake up screaming, torn from dreaming
+++++ of everything you’ve left behind,
+++++ wake up screaming, spent and bleeding,
+++++ see how hard I’ve tried..
+++ now I’m awake, yeah I’m wide awake,
+++ now I’m awake..

sugarcoat the aftertaste, till the final memory fades,
a bitter kiss, and you will
wake up screaming…
