Lyrics:
Longtime zombie
Nothing beating til I met you
Now it's back and racing
And this me wants to grab you
One by one, let's take it all off
One by one, let's strip it down

You are waking
Something sleeping
Something sleeping inside
You are waking
Something sleeping
Something sleeping inside
It's all coming out
It's all coming out
It's all coming out now

Got so good at building illusions
Almost believed they were real
Tried so hard to keep up with the facade
In the end I just wanted to feel
Guess I never let you
See the whole picture
Never let you see the whole of me

You are waking
Something sleeping
Something sleeping inside
You are waking
Something sleeping
Something sleeping inside
It's all coming out
It's all coming out
It's all coming out now

Learnt to live without a heart
'Til fourteen years passed in the dark
Pushed down the pain
Painted over the cracks
But you were not afraid
To peel it all back
See, I've become a stranger to my soul
Forgotten what I look like
Underneath it all, my troubled soul

You are waking
Something sleeping
Something sleeping inside
You are waking
Something sleeping
Something sleeping inside
It's all coming out
It's all coming out
It's all coming out now
