"Wake Up" as written by Michael Colton Dixon, Nicholas Grant Departee and Christopher E. Stevens....
Wake up, wake up,
Lets just go against our nation.
This is what we have become,
This is what deeds are made of.

Go look in the mirror.

Wake up, wake up,
Lets just go against our nation.
Wake up, wake up,
It just goes against our mission.

Go and steal a taste,
I can't see my face.
Go and steal a taste,
I can't see my face.

Wake up, wake up,
Lets just go against our nation.
This is what we have become,
This is what deeds are made of.

Wake up, wake up.
Wake up, wake up.
Wake up, wake up.
Wake up, wake up.
Wake up, wake up.
Wake up, wake up.
Wake up, wake up.
You've got to fight,
You've got to wake the fuck up.

Wake up, wake up,
This is more than you bargained for.
It's been so long since you've wanted more,
You've got to much man,
You've got too much.

Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up wake up

    General Commentthese lyrics aren't correct. Here are the real lyrics...

    Wake up, wake up. This is no hallucination
    This is what we have become
    This is what dreams are made of
    Go look in the mirror
    Wake up, wake up. This is no hallucination
    Do we still exist? I can't see my face
    Or are we just not here? I can't see my face.
    Wake up, wake up. This is no hallucination
    This is what we have become
    This is now what dreams are made of
    Wake up, wake up
    Come on, come on you've got to wake the fuck up
    Wake up, wake up
    This is more than you bargained for
    It took so long so you ate some more
    You did too much man, you did too much!
    Wake up, wake up!

    SG This is now what dreams are made of
    SG Wake up, wake up

    Song MeaningIt's obviously about his friend who's overdosing and passing out.

    "Wake up, wake up
    This is more than you bargained for
    It took so long so you ate some more
    You did too much man, you did too much!"

    He's not waking up since he did too much, it's kind of obvious what it means.

    General CommentThe ending of the song makes it seem like a possible bad Shroom trip.
    "it took so long, so you ate some more
    YOu Did too much man, you did too much!
    wake up, wake up!"

    "this is what dreams are made of"

    General CommentIn a metal injection interview, they talked about it being about a "real bad drug trip." Mark Heylmun said, "It's called eating hallucinogenic drugs and going whoa, this could be bad some times."

    So apparently shrooms?
