Watch in the distance, beautiful
Somebody's caught in the undertow
Have you ever felt desperation,
As the salt water's filling your lungs?
Will we regret it when we sleep?
Promises never meant to keep
When all the shadows need
As a good man's hiding a dream

Do they know that the world's on fire?

Time has a price we can't afford
An empty glass and an open door
You get what you pay for in sweat
A little voice says, please don't forget

Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is now?
Do they know that you gotta stand up stand up
Use your voice, speak out?
Do they know that it's time?

Caught in a maze you can't escape
The flickering lights and the colored lens
The walls that we built just close in
Until we decide to begin
Are we distracted by the sun,
The glittering jewels and the beating drums
Is it going the distance we fear?
Have you heard that we're already here?

Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is here?
Do they know that you gotta stand up stand up
Let your voice speak out?

Do they know that it's time?
Do they know that the world's on fire ?
Do they know that the time is here?
Do they know that you gotta stand up stand up
let your voice be clear
Do they know that's time?

Some will say we've gone too far
On the edge, we're in too deep
Some will say that we're too far gone
Can't erase a tragedy

Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is here?
Do they know that you gotta stand up stand up
Well you gotta stand up stand up
Do they know that the world's on fire?
Do they know that the time is here?
Do they know that you gotta stand up stand up
Let your voice be clear
Do they know that it's time?
Do they know, do they know?
