"'I wrote ['Wake Up'] in what felt like one minute," Claudio Sanchez told Guitar World
. "I had just gotten on a plane to go back to New York after spending time with my girlfriend in California. The band was getting ready to go out on the road again and I didn't know when I'd see her next. So I was sad, and this song came out. I sent it to her and it made her cry. As to where the influence for something like that comes from, it was really just a case of that being the song I needed to write in order to make it to the next day."
