"Awake" is the song that plays during the fight between a young Cinder Fall and Rhodes in "Midnight" and is incorporated into Ok Goodnight's "Under the Veil" EP.

Lyrics

Still, of fragile lies in bones
Forever, we alone
Cannot escape this misery

Slow, we step into the light
Inebriate in sights
Unveil the truth that guides us home

Look inside
With darkness my tears collide
Sinking into the shrine of me
I'm ready to be set free
I'm sick as the dying, the air I breathe

I feel alive
My self-portrait suicide
Tonight is no time to die
And now I'm awake

Truth can break your soul in two
Just when you think it's you
The trеachery will breed inside

Embers, sweet and unrеfined
So bright but not so kind
Will start a fire in your mind

Look inside
With darkness my tears collide
Sinking into the shrine of me
I'm ready to be set free
I'm sick as the dying, the air I breathe


I feel alive
My self-portrait suicide
Tonight is no time to die
Now I'm awake

Silence fuels the deadly cries
Ripped apart by knives in lovers' lies
Curse my innocence goodbye
Take my hand then take my life

Look inside
With darkness my tears collide
Sinking into the shrine of me
I'm ready to be set free
I'm sick as the dying, the air I breathe
I feel alive

My self-portrait suicide
Tonight is no time to die
Now I'm awake
Oh, now I'm awake
Yeah
