SpeakInStorms_albumThe pilot was alive
After his plane went down
On that fateful Sunday morning
Near an upstate town.

The pilot survived
When his plane crashed down
Onto a travelling circus
Wiping out the clowns

I know who I am
I am awake
I am aware

(line break)
The fear of being caught

It’s a paralyzing thought
But reproval from the board
Makes you a grown man

With nerves of steel
It’s treachery you feel
What they hide from you, you steal
You are a grown man

The fear of being caught
What a ridiculous thought
Disapproval from the lord
You are a grown man

Chains of steel
Shortchanged you feel
What she holds back from you, you steal
You are a grown man

I know who I am
I am awake
I am aware

Are you awake?
Are you aware?
Do you notice?
Do you care?

The smell of bandages
Is confusing
Are you choosing life?

Do you think twice?

Are you awake?
Are you aware?
Do you notice?
Do you care?

The pilot was alive
After his plane went down
On that fateful Sunday morning
Near an upstate town.

The pilot survived
When his plane crashed down
Onto a travelling circus.

The fear of being caught
It’s a paralyzing thought
But reproval from the board
Makes you a grown man…
