Awake

Godsmack Oct 31, 2000

Awake was recorded during a short break between touring and found the band playing sold out shows across the country, walking down the red carpet at The Grammys and in the front seat for the United States Navy!

# Title Duration
1 Sick Of Life
Paralyzed. Nothing's getting through to me.
Hypnotized from all my surroundings.
I wanna be something I could never be.
I wanna say things that I could never say.
Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!

Sick of my life. I'm tired of everything in my life.

Dragged down. Rubbing my face in the ground.
No time for the undecided.
I wanna know why I've always felt alone,
I wanna love. Why am I untouchable?
Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!

Sick of my life. I'm tired of everything in my life.
I never wanted to be sick of my life.
I'm tired of everything in my life.
2 Awake
Wait another minute
Can't you see what this pain has fucking done to me
I'm alive and still kicking
What you see I can't see and maybe you'll think before you speak

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you

Take another second
Turn your back on me
and make believe that you're always happy
It's safe to say you're never alive
A big part of you has died and by the way,
I hope you're satisfied

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,

(go)

Tearing it back, unveiling me
Taking a step back so i can breathe
Hear the silence about to break
Fear resistance when im awake

Tearing it back, unveiling me
Taking a step back so i can breathe
Hear the silence about to break
Fear resistance when im awake

arrrrr

OH YEAH

AH YEAH

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you
3 Greed
Two faced! I feel you crawling under my skin.
Sickened by your face.
By the way, to think that you're so fucking kind?
You ain't!

Hard to find how I feel, especially when your smothering me.
Hard to find how I feel, please someone help me!

I knew when an angel whispered into my ear,
You gotta get him away.
Hey little bitch! Be glad you finally walked away or
you may have not lived another day.

Hard to find how I feel, especially when your smothering me.
Hard to find how I feel, please someone help me.
Hard to find how I feel, controlling me every step of the way.
Hard to find how I feel, you greedy little baby!

Hard to find, to find the time, find the time, find the time.
Hard to find the time, to find the time, to find the time.

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah (7X)

Aaaah, yeah.

Haaaa,
Hard to find how I feel, especially when your smothering me.
Hard to find how I feel, please someone help me.
Hard to find how I feel, controlling me every step of the way.
Hard to find how I feel, you greedy little baby!
4 Bad Magick
Does it feel so bad when you're taking a drag and when
you're looking at the world through tired eyes?
When you stare at it dead and you're giving it head and all those
things you say you love never come alive. oh yeah

If it feels so bad, Bad magick playing off of me.(feels so bad)
Oh no, I don't wanna be your friend.
feels so bad,Bad magick laying into me.(feels so bad)
Oh no, I don't wanna hear it again.

When you get so high that you're wanting to dye but everything
around you is turning green.
When you're getting so low and I know you've been feeling like
a dried out leaf in a summer breeze. I don't like it!

[Chorus]

Getting back, Back on track, Get off of my back
5 Goin' Down
I see the world it's goin' 'round.
Seems to me it's upside down.
Looking for something to say.
I feel a little different anyway.

Yeah!(4x)

Does it make much sense to you?
Doin' all those things you do.
Making sure that I'm all right? Yeah, I'm fine!

I've been feelin' I'm goin' down. down... down...

I see the world it's goin' 'round.
Seems to me it's upside down.
Looking for something to say.

I've been feelin' I'm goin' down. Down...YEAH!

I've been feelin'(3x) I'm goin' down...down...down
6 Mistakes
No
I don't feel a thing
Life's going by me
But still I say
Oh God I'm making the same mistakes

Low?
I'm on empty
Try to erase all the bad times
Free?
I don't seem to be
My soul remains tied to your life

Every breath you breathe deep
I feel you circulating through me
I'll never forgive myself again
I'm so sick and tired of making the same mistakes

God help me [x3]

(unintelligible)
(Spoken) Because of the corruption in the human heart
(unintelligible)
7 Trippin'
Living a different way. You can't expect me to be the same.
Separating our lives and wondering why.
Face down I walk away. Every time I think I do the right thing,
you turn your back on me.

Trippin' into a world that never seems too far away.
Too much time, too many wasted days.

How can you be this way? Now I'm alone and cold today.
I'm walking dead man's drive. Reaching out for my life.
I've been known to fuck up everything.
In this skin there's a broken man.

Trippin' into a world that never seems too far away.
Too much time, too many wasted days.
Just another vision.
Just another vision in my world!
8 Forgive Me
There's nothing to me now. An empty shell unfolded.
How, when we learn to pray inside our demons are living
How long will this go on? Are we a bit much stronger?
Do you think you can save me from living this way?

I don't know how to love. I just know how to live.
All I feel is hate. Will you forgive me?

For all those things I've done, they keep on creeping by me.
And though we've changed our ways,
still all our demons are laughing.
How long will this go on? Aren't we a bit much stronger?
I'd like to think you've came into my life to stay.

I don't know how to love. I just know how to live.
All I feel is hate. Will you forgive me?
I don't know how to breathe with you too far away.
Don't know how to love. Will you forgive me?
No I can't live this way!
I don't know how to love. I just know how to live.
All I feel is pain. Will you forgive me?
I don't know how to breathe with you too far away.
I don't know how to love.

Past lives I've lived. Uncontrolled but sacred.
You've finally seen all that's left of me.
So hard to feel. So hard to breathe.
Will you forgive me?
9 Vampires
Few creatures of the night have captured our imagination like vampires...
What explains our enduring fascination with vampires?
What is it about the vampire myth that explains our interest?
Is it the overtones of sexual lust, power, control...
Or is it a fascination with the immortality of the undead?
And what dark and hidden parts of our psyche are aroused and captivated
"By the legends of the undead" (x's 3)
The mysteries of the undead will continue to fascinate the living.
The mysteries of the undead will continue to; Will continue to fascinate the living...(legends)....

10 The Journey
11 Spiral
Sometimes we only live for the here and now
Sometimes we're lonely
Sometimes we feel we need a place to be grounded
Or fly away again

I will fly away again
Oh, I will fly away again

Why are we feeling something's familiar around us?
Are we just dreaming?
Always we search for the answers but nothing is found
We'll fly away again

I will fly away again
Oh, I will fly away again

I feel rain pouring down
I wait to run away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

Run away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

I feel rain pouring down
I wait to rot away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

Run away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

It never ends

I will fly away again
Oh, I will fly away again
