Among the Waking

"Welcome back," and my neck cracked
As I return to life
"How have you been? Is everything alright?"

Am I alive?
Am I among the waking?

On this starry night, these last few months seem like dreams
Nightmares of a better life, it seems

Shining bright, my life alights
And I'm back in the flame
After what I've lived, I hardly mind the pain

Am I alive?
Am I among the waking?

The death of another chapter of my life
I made it through, and everything's alright

And once again, the heat will end
And life follows suit
Leaves of brown, cradle my every step

Am I alive?
Am I among the waking?

Life and death, the story of these last four years
Death and rebirth, a cycle I've always held dear
