Awake (But Not Alive)

About the song: Are we honestly being true to ourselves, or following for the sake of following? Why? For what?

Lyrics:

Takes more than a little bit of faith to heal
Once it’s captured me, I am revealed
Another trend, a spoke inside that wheel
Once that train’s on track, can it still turn back?

Cynics and their politics are stoking the fire
Everybody trying to reach a little bit higher
And the irony of where that leads

Souls are reeling, passions kneeling
So many good hearts make-believing
Awake but not alive; another moment dies
Fixated on destination
And instant gratification
Awake but not alive
While yet another moment dies

Outside the window and we’re looking in
And we stare right through our own reflection
There’s a miracle stoic and patient
Taps you on the arm
You pay no attention

Over-stimulated and under-prepared to see something for only what’s there
And you know it’s true
You know it’s true

Souls are reeling, passions kneeling
So many good hearts make-believing
Awake but not alive; another moment dies
Fixated on destination
And instant gratification
Awake but not alive
While yet another moment dies

The sun is in the sky, something’s gotta’ be wrong
Every single day it is a similar song
Forgive us please
Forgive us please

Souls are reeling, passions kneeling
So many good hearts make-believing
Awake but not alive; another moment dies
Fixated on destination
And instant gratification
Awake but not alive
While yet another moment dies
