Awakening Lyrics

Play "Awakening"
on Amazon Music

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Facedown with the L.A. curbside endings,
with the ones and zeros
Downtown was the perfect place to hide
The first star that I saw last night was a headlight
Of a man-made sky but
Man-made never made our dreams...

    It's about not being afraid to dream; having these passions, ideas that keep you up at night ("maybe its called ambition...You've been talking in your sleep"). But its also about getting up, and making your dreams come to pass! Its about getting to a place where you dreams won't let you rest or sit by idly. They AWAKEN you to get going ("kicking and screaming")!
