Lying Awake

This song is by Authority Zero and appears on the album A Passage in Time (2002).

Lying awake
Lost in time
With no reason to turn around
And put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

Oh yeah, yeah, at age fourteen
No inhibitions
And I'm sure as hell, did not need your permission
Never looking forward and I was never looking back
And I'd never known what's next

But as the days had gone by
Both ignorant and blind
New visions of a world started filling my eyes
Tossing and turning, with eyes open wide
That is where I find

I'm lying awake
Lost in time
With no reason to turn around
And put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

Years go by as we start to see
So many generations torn by poverty and greed
So many whining that their lives are, oh, so bad
But far better than so many, it's sad

Becoming intoxicated by all of the madness
And all of the pain that they've been through
Hoping and searching, a world in despair
Right outside, no more!

I'm lying awake
Lost in time
With no reason to turn around
And put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

There's just got to be some other way
The people are dying today
There's just got to be some other time
That they are going to mind
There's just got to be some sort of progress
Some other way they're going to know
There's just got to be another means to an end
Here's to hoping that it will show!
(Go!)

(Wake up!)

Oh, like some people
In our society
And it grows
Planted like a seed

So what do we do when it comes down on you
Cries ring out as a chime for awakening
Taking the time to listen up, maybe don't turn away
Maybe showing interest could show them light of day
Light of day, yeah

Well, it's a pretty line as community paces (Oh yeah, community paces)
Stepping up to the edge daily different cases (Oh yeah, community paces)
Well, it's a pretty line as community paces (Oh yeah, to see their faces)
Stepping up to the edge daily different cases (Oh yeah, to see their faces)

Another third world tragedy, another in store
Another taste of what's real, can they take anymore?
Another third world tragedy, another in store
Another taste of what's real, can they take anymore?

Lying awake
Lost in time
With no reason to turn around
And put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows

So weak
Lost in time
With no reason to turn around
And put it all aside, yeah
Here today, gone tomorrow
While drowning in all of their sorrows
Lying awake!
