"Wake Up!" as written by and Brett Callaway....
It seems like these minutes are getting longer
Waiting for these lights to go down
So clench your fist and hold your head up high
We are not alone in this crowd

I pray that this won’t be the last time that our stories share the stage
This is the reason we have come, and why we’ll never leave the same
It’s your face that we want to see; you’re the notes in this melody
In this song of life that you sing with me

There were so many nights that I sang these words out into the open air
I never knew that you would be the one who sang back into my ears
Wake up wake up now! I never thought that I would see this day come to pass
Wake up wake up now! If this is who I am I know I can’t be sleeping

It is not enough to be silent and never make a sound
So move your feet! Come on and be different; stand out

I need to hear your voice
I can’t sing this on my own
We’re stronger when we stand as one

There were so many nights that we sang these words out into the open air
We never knew that You would be the one who sang back into our ears
Wake up wake up now! We never thought that we would see this day come to pass
Wake up wake up now! If this is who we are we know we can’t be sleeping

    General CommentGreat song from a great band. What i think is that this song is about the band from the start of their career to where they are now. "Seems like these minutes are getting longer waiting for these lights to go down" - Waiting for the lights in the venue to go down to start the set. "There were so many nights that I sang these words out into the open air" -Obviously meaning the nights they had shows where nobody came. "It is not enough to be silent and never make a sound So move your feet! Come on and be different; stand out" - Showing that the band wants you to dance/mosh during their set. Just my thoughts, who knows lol.

    General CommentWow! This is definetly one of my favorite songs by Close Your Eyes. I think it's about our calling to shine for Jesus in our faith, and not conform to this world. I think it is talking about a person who was apathetic in their faith, who was woken up by Jesus in their lives.
