"Wake Up!" as written by and Yoko Ono....
If I had a lighter in hands
With some oily rags
Is that what it'd take
To wake you from your sleep?
Woke up from your american dreams
To be surrounded
Surrounded in flames!

You got to scream
To make your voice heard!
And I won't stop screaming
Until mine is heard!
Wake up!
Wake up!
To the world around you
Wake up!
Wake up!
To the world around you
Wake up!
Wake up!
To the world around you
Wake up!
Wake up!

Yeah!

And if we blocked the streets
Everyday
Face down on the pavement
As we lay
You're angered
'cause you're five minutes late.
What happens next time
When we will stop you all day?
Yeah, next time
When we will stop you all day?

You got to scream
To make your voice heard!
And I won't stop screaming
Until mine is heard!
Wake up!
Wake up!
To the world around you
Wake up!
Wake up!
To the world around you
Wake up!
Wake up!
To the world around you
Wake up!
Wake up!
To the world around you

And it's the same song, sung
Sung at the top of our lungs
Screaming for freedom
Pleading for liberty
Screaming for freedom
Pleading for liberty
Screaming for freedom
Pleading for liberty
Freedom!

    General CommentThis is exactly what Anti-Flag is trying to do, waking people up... and I'm aiding them as best as I can, though that's not much... There's "freedom of opinion", and most people are of the opinion that it's better to remain asleep and not see the shit of the world. Those who don't simply ignore the point, that is.

    General CommentWow, first to comment. Hm. When I first got The Terror State and listened to it, this song got my attention more than any other song on the album. The lyrics and #2s vocals...*shudders* And the drums...jeez. Such an amazing song.
