lyrics

For every hour
I spend alive
I'm counting the hours
Till I die
It's never enough
The time flies by...

Each minute screams to me
"...take the life you want to lead..."

And so I lie awake
Just to escape
Sleep's been making deals with Death
And he let's him creep
Around my bed
Tries to rob my life
(Night after –)
Night after night

Chorus
Hey! – And it's all I see
Hey! – Is a world asleep
Hey! – And it's all I see
Hey! – Is my world's asleep

Through this city's streets
I want to make'em see
"Sleep's been selling us out!
He's been selling you out!
These years of our youth
Are stolen right from out of our mouths"
(Gasp)

Chorus
Hey! – And it's all I see
Hey! – Is a world asleep
Hey! – And it's all I see
Hey! – Is my world's asleep

No we won't go
No we won't
Oh!

I'm done dreaming out loud
I want to live loud

I'm waking up
And I'm coming back
Sleep's been ebbing dreams
But I'm shaking back

Chorus
Hey! – And it's all I see
Hey! – And it's all I feel
Hey! – Is a world unreal

Hey!
Is this world asleep?
Hey!
Cause Death's sneaking beneath
