Música instrumental
Death in – Death in it’s most hideous form

Catch me as I fall
Say you’re here and it’s all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one’s here and I fall into myself
This truth drives me into madness
I know I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
If I will it all awayDon’t turn away (don’t give in to the pain)
Don’t try to hide (though they’re screaming your name)
Don’t close your eyes (God knows what lies behind them)
Don’t turn out the light (never sleep, never die)I’m frightened by what I see
But somehow I know
That there’s much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be blinded by tears
I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
If I will it all away

Fallen angels at my feet
Whispered voices at my ear
Death before my eyes
Lying next to me, I fear
She beckons me, shall I give in?
Upon my end, shall I begin?
Forsaking all I’ve fallen for
I rise to meet the end

You hold the answer

The pain that grips you
The fear that binds you
Releases life in me
In our mutual shame we hide our eyes
To blind them from the truth that finds a way for who we are

Please don’t be afraid
When the darkness fades away
The dawn will break the silence Screaming in our hearts

My love for you still grows
This I do for you
Before I try to fight the truth
My final time

Can’t wash it all away
Can’t wish it all away
Can’t cry it all away
Can’t scratch it all away

Lying beside you
Listening to you breathe
The light that flows inside of you
Burns inside of me

Hold and speak to me
Of love without a sound
Tell me you will live through this
And I will die for you

Cast me not away
Say you’ll be with me
For I know
I cannot bear it all alone

Can’t fight it all away
Can’t hope it all away
Can’t scream it all away
It just won’t fade away

I’ve tried so hard (I have tried super hard)
Tried to be without you for so many years
No, no, no
And I have cried (So many words I have saved for someone, for sometime)
I love you, I love you, and I want you to stay

Can you forgive me again
I don’t know what I said
But I didn’t mean to hurt youI heard the words come out
I felt that I would die
It hurts so much to hurt you

Then you look at me
You’re not shouting anymore
You’re silently broken

I’d give anything now
To kill those words for you
Each time I say something I regret
I cry I don’t want to lose you
But somehow I know that you will never leave me

‘Cause you were made for me
Somehow I’ll make you see
How happy you make me

I can’t live this life
Without you by my side
I need you to survive
So stay with me
You look in my eyes
And I’m screaming inside that I’m sorry

And you forgive me again
You’re my one true friend
And I never meant to hurt you

You hold the answer deep within your own mind
Consciously you’ve forgotten it
That’s the way the human mind works
Whenever something is too unpleasant
Too shameful for us to entertain we reject it
We erase it from our memory
But the imprint is always there
We wash it all away
We wish it all away
We hope it all away
Can’t cry it all away

The pain that grips you
The fear that binds you
Releases life in me
In our mutual shame we hide our eyes
To blind them from the truth that finds a way for who we are

Please don’t be afraid
When the darkness fades away
The dawn will break the silence
Screaming in our hearts

My love for you still grows
This I do for you
Before I try to fight the truth
My final time

We’re supposed to try and be real
And when you feel alone, you are not together
And that is real

Can’t wash it all away
Can’t wish it all away
Can’t cry it all away
Can’t scratch it all away

Lying beside you
Listening to you breathe
The light that flows inside of you
Burns inside of me

Hold and speak to me
Of love without a sound
Tell me you will live through this
And I will die for you

Cast me not away
Say you’ll be with me
For I know
I cannot bear it all alone

You’re not alone, honey
Never, never

Can’t fight it all away
Can’t hope it all away
Can’t scream it all away
It just won’t fade away

Can’t wash it all away
Can’t wish it all away
Can’t cry it all away
Can’t scratch it all away

Can’t fight it all away
Can’t hope it all away
Can’t scream it all away
Oh, it all away

But the imprint is always there
Nothing is ever really forgotten

God, just don’t hate me
Because I’ll die if you do

Curiosidades

Também conhecido como Whisper EP, o CD-R foi direcionado a amigos e fãs em Little Rock, não sendo vendido em nenhum show. Somente 50 cópias desde CD-R foram feitos na época.

Foram utilizados excertos dos filmes Terror in the Haunted House, When a Man Loves a Woman e My Boyfriend’s Back nas faixas. A última faixa, Ascension of the Spirit, é instrumental. A versão de Give Unto Me que aparece nesse CD-R é também instrumental e completamente diferente da versão anterior.

Durante muito tempo, circulou na internet uma explicação para a possível capa do Sound Asleep EP. A imagem em questão aparecia do site da Bigwig Enterprises até 2003, quando a banda fez sucesso mundial. Somente em 2007, o dono da Bigwig explicou que ele sugeriu uma arte, assim como o violinista Adrian James, mas Ben Moody rejeitou ambas as ideias. Não se sabe, portanto, qual a origem desta aqui.
