  • Hey, you're awake
    And you keeps you where you wanted to be known
    That's alright, you know that you've been framed
    All the way
    And it keeps you where you wanted to be known
    But that's alright, you're only human, boy
    Take your inhibitions going home
    Walk on home, boy

    Hey, you're awake
    And that keeps you where you're wanting to be owned
    That's alright, you're only evil
    'Eh' all the way
    And it keeps you where you wanting to be owned
    That's alright, you're only human boy
    So stay a while

    All the world's a stage and we are home again, home again
    All the world's afraid, but we are home again, home again
    Away from home
    Wait!

    I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)
    I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)

    I want to be set free
    On the road again for you and me
    Tell your partner that you'll be on the way
    Get up, get up, get up
    We're far too old to whine about it

    Hey, you're awake
    And it keeps you where you've wanted to be known
    That's alright, we knew we knew the way, all the way
    And it keeps us where we wanted to be on time

    Oh, then sooner or later it comes
    And we're free
    I'm free
    I'm free

    All the world's a stage and we are home again, home again
    All the world's afraid, but we are home again, home again
    Away from home?
    Wait!

    I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)
    I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)
    I died a little (waiting, waiting, wait)

    I want to be set free
    On the bond again for you and for me
    Without a haunted song we'd be all alone
    So get up, get up, get up, get up
    Now deconstruct

    All the world's afraid, all the world's afraid

    And we looked up to the stars last night
    And I saw that maybe
    There was nothing more?
    And my thought turned!
