The Awakening

Album: The Awakening (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of P.O.D.'s tenth album. It is a concept record traveling on a journey based on the good and bad choices of a central character, exploring the consequences of his decisions. "'The Awakening' is meant to be listened to in its entirety," said P.O.D. singer and lyricist Sonny Sandoval. "Every song ultimately explores a character dealing with life, making mistakes, fighting, trying. But we also live in a singles-type world, and it works on that level, too."
