lyrics

Alone... in the darkness I am falling
I know not from what or from where I fall (falling)

Wide awake I'm dripping with sweat
This nightmare I can't forget
I wonder if I will live to see the dawn?

My eyes are closed this time as I fall asleep
And as always to the Lord I pray my soul to keep
But even as I close my tired eyes
The ground is gone from under me;
I'm falling from the sky!

Wide awake I'm dripping with sweat
This nightmare I can't forget
I wonder if I will live to see the dawn?

The darkest of all surrounds me
And threatens to swallow me whole.
A chasm beneath me opens.
If I stumble how far will I fall?

A chasm beneath me opens;
If I stumble how far down will I fall (how far down)
The darkness of all surrounds me
And threatens to swallow me whole.
If I stumble how far will I fall?

This is it. The fated fall.
This is your wake up call!
Wide Awake
Open your eyes and you will see the light.

The darkest of all surrounds me
And threatens to swallow me whole
A chasm beneath me opens
If I stumble how far will I fall?

Just before the fall would break
I open my eyes and I'm wide awake!

Alone, in the darkest hour falling
I would use my strength to sublimate this dream
I will rectify these wrongs within my life
If I can only make it through this endless night.

Don't let them take control of you.
Don't let them tell you what to do.
If it starts to feel too strange
Open your eyes and you're awake!

This dream of mind will end tomorrow
These dreams of mine were never hallowed.

This night is a battle.
This night is
This night is a battle
A battle I won't lose.
I've been waiting for this night to come to an end.

This life is a battle.
This life is
This life is a battle of hope
A battle I won't lose.
I've been waiting for this night to come to an end. (Good night.)

Sitting in my room
While the moonbeams fall like sand
My eyes are closed; will this pain ever end
Will this nightmare ever end?

What if I don't see the light?
What if the moon doesn't shine?
What if my dreams come to life?
What if I'm damned for for all time?
Waking the dead. Horrified.
What if it isn't the darkness that makes you fall?

The darkest of all surrounds me
And threatens to swallow me whole.
A chasm beneath me opens.
If I stumble how far will I fall?
