The Casket Lottery - Rip Van Winkle lyrics

I lie awake after 20 years of sleep. learn to speak after 20 years of screams. am i coming in clear? calling you back home. do you recognize me? or has it been too long since...i got your message the wound is much too deep a cleansing is in order to make things neat. i'm calling you back home, do you recognize me, or has it been too long since i fell asleep?
