I've swallowed every hook
Fallen for their disguise
Lived by the book
Felt the blade of the knife
As it pressed against my neck
We're taught to imitate
Segregate and divide
Do what we're told
Rise and fall with the tide
If we refuse to play the part
They will hear us screaming...

WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!

They advertise your life
Through a blanket of lies
Expand the truth
So their profits will rise
Ignore the sacrifice
Liars casting stones
At the gods they create
We're amplified to provide what they take
If we refuse to play the role
They will hear us screaming...

WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!

GO!!

They're the reason for defiance
We can't ignore
We're the promise of a new day
This is a war
The blood will spill
The voices will be heard
And tonight, we are alive

I've swallowed every hook
Fallen for their disguise
Lived by the book
Felt the blade of the knife
But I refuse to play the role
They will hear me screaming...

WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
WAKE UP THE VOICELESS!
WAKE UP THE REVOLUTION!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!

    General Commentabout religion and that being a cause for war, like people who are christian and some are another regligion completely and some people have a disagreement.

    They advertise your life
    Through a blanket of lies
    Expand the truth
    So their profits will rise
    Ignore the sacrifice
    Liars casting stones
    At the gods they create

    My Interpretationi think it may be about living in a place where people dont have much of a choice of how to live and speaking up to spot it.....thats just what i think

    General CommentI thought there is a possibility that this song is about governments. Like how they try to show us that their way of living is better:

    "They advertise your life
    Through a blanket of lies
    Expand the truth
    So their profits will rise"

    But that those who aren't "politically correct" (The voiceless) are't going to just sit there and let it happen to them:

    "They're the reason for defiance
    We can't ignore
    We're the promise of a new day
    This is a war
    The blood will spill
    The voices will be heard
    And tonight, we are alive"
