"Wake Up" as written by Reginald Arvizu, Jonathan Howsman Davis, Atticus Ross, James Christian Shaffer, O'shea Jackson, Henri Charlemagne, Christopher Wallace, Dwight Grant, Eric Matlock, Deric Michael Angelettie and Robert Ross....
Dreamers are believers
That's how you buy into a dream
But how much more do you need to see
Before you can believe?
It's time to wake up from this dream

What if I was never rejected?
What if you all just knew the right time to leave?
My judgment was never requested
But what if you gave me exactly what I need?
What if I altered my perspective?
What if I discovered what I never thought to see?
What if I'm still just asleep?

Wake up, wake up, you dreamer
Wake up and see the day
You thought it was a nightmare
But life has a mysterious way

What if these drugs aren't the problem?
What if my freedom's hiding just outside my reach?
What if I never hit bottom?
How far can I go fallin' 'fore I realize fallin's free?
What if we've all got a Satan
Hiding deep within our bellies, where he knows we cannot see?
What if my dollar bill is me?

Wake up, wake up, you dreamers
This dream has gone astray
A generation slumbers
Through modern life's decay

Wake up, wake up, you dreamers
Wake up and discern the signs
You thought it was a textbook
But life is a decadent display

Do you remember, kids?
Dreamers are believers
That's how you buy into a dream
But how much more do you need to see
Before you can believe?
It's time to wake up from this dream
