So are we lost or do we know
Which direction we should go
Sit around and wait for someone to take our hands and lead the way

'Cause every day we're getting older
And every day we all get colder
We're sick of waiting for our answers

Wake up, wake up, wake up,
Yeah I'm so tired of waiting, waiting for us to
Wake up, wake up, wake up,
Yeah I'm so sick of waiting for us to make a move

Are we meant to take the bait?
Should we sit around and wait?
Are we being saved, or was that another lie you made to make us hate?

'Cause every day we're getting older
And every day we all get colder
We're sick of waiting for our answers

Wake up, wake up, wake up,
Yeah I'm so tired of waiting, waiting for us to
Wake up, wake up, wake up,
Yeah I'm so sick of waiting for us to make a move

Wake up, wake up, wake up,
And we will never lose
Wake up, wake up, wake up,
It's time to make a move
Wake up, wake up, wake up,
And we will never lose
Wake up, wake up, wake up,
It's time to make a move

It's not enough
To let it work
Wait until
It's over

We're sick of waiting for our answers

Wake up, wake up, wake up,
Yeah I'm so tired of waiting, waiting for us to
Wake up, wake up, wake up,
Yeah I'm so sick of waiting for us to make a move

Wake up, wake up, wake up
And we will never lose
Wake up, wake up, wake up
It's time to make a move
Wake up, wake up, wake up
And we will never lose, oh, make a move

    General CommentThis song is awesome, it's about stepping up and getting things done for yourself, enough sitting around waiting for someone take your hand and walk you down the difficult paths. Really inspirational.

    General CommentIf you read the lyrics it kind of sounds anti-bush

    But what do I know I'm a liberal hippie douche.

    General Commenti can agree with this dude above but its not just that we should its that we have to. if we just sat around watching our lives pass by than we never had a life ourselves and therefore we become isalated in our own mental and physical solitude with nobody to talk to. imagine if you are the only fish in the sea. you just hae to have faith in yourself to get anyware.

    this is a good song. this albuim isn't to bad. i was reall hesitant about buying it because i loved their first album so much.

    General CommentI love this song, the first lostprophet song i heard was burn, burn but this song is totally on top of my fave list now. it is really hard 2 figure what it means cos it doesnt really say much. im dissappointed there aint more comments here. its a great song though just 4 the fact that u can interpret it anyway u like.

    General Commentthis song is one of my many favorites of the band! It's talking about how you shouldn't let life pass you by without doing anything for yourself. that you shouldn't waste away and DO NOTHING! i mean where would that get you right? they talk/ sing about how you need to make an effort to do something, how you need to not follow OTHER people, but do your own thing as long as you're living life to its fullest.... does that make sense to any of you out there?? great song... don't pass it up!
