One of the running themes we see in the people we talk to is fear. Fear of people judging them for their story. Fear of somehow making themselves susceptible to future attacks by telling their story. Fear of getting their perpetrator, whom is often a loved one, in trouble. From Dreams awakened reminds us right off the bat in this song to “make fear a stranger”.

FDA is a metal band from southern Ohio with a sound that can be comparable to both As I lay Dying and Metallica. And while they are more of a recreational band for the time being and don’t play many shows right now, they really captured some fantastic ideas in the lyrics of this song.

fdaThe main concept as found in both the title and in the repeated chorus is probably my favorite lyrical aspect of this song – “Dream of what may be when never becomes someday.” Along with fear being an idea we see time and time again, so is self doubt. I will never be able to get past this. I will never be able to have a meaningful relationship again. I never see myself being able to move forward. But the concept that that FDA wants to express is never can become someday. Recovery isn’t overnight. It’s hard and it can be painful. But it can happen, someday. As soon as we can realize that we don’t have to wait for ‘never’ and we can work toward ‘someday’, we instantly put ourselves in a better place, and we are closer to, as FDA encourages, “coming out from the shadows and feeling the sunlight on your face.”

Never Become Someday lyrics by From Dreams Awakened

Make fear a stranger
As the pain fades away
Dream of what may be
When never becomes someday
You’ve been crying for so long
Tears got in the way
It’s your tomorrow if you fight for today
Fight for today

The light has faded away
A light that once lit your eyes
A smile that you wish to share
Now hides behind a disguise

Make fear a stranger
As the pain fades away
Dream of what may be
When never becomes someday
You’ve been crying for so long
Tears got in the way
It’s your tomorrow
Fight for today

No face, just echoes of a voice
Burned forever in your mind

Broken down and beaten
Tired of feeling like a victim
Broken down and beaten
Tired of feeling like a victim
Want to close your eyes
Come out from the shadows
Feel the sunlight on your face

Make fear a stranger
As the pain fades away
Dream of what may be
When never becomes someday
You’ve been crying for so long
Tears got in the way
If you could only see
If you could just believe
That it’s your tomorrow
Fight for today
Fight for today

There’s no room to be a victim
When inner strength is embraced
