I was once a young man but I'm older now
I'm looking for someone out there
To tell me what happened to this town
Cause I don't know you
No, I don't know you

I am now a grown man, you can't hold me down
It's my time to take my hand
And cross this land all over again
I've gotta tell you
You sure don't promise the truth

And now I've got to
Wake up, get out
And fight with the world again
Hold back nothing
If I'm gonna win
And when I wake up
I'll tell you about my dream
How the city fell down
On its knees, on its knees

I opened up my eyes this time and looked around
And I found old faces that I once knew
But had broken down
And they don't know you
No, they don't know you

But for now, I've got to
Wake up, get out
And fight with the world again
Hold back nothing
If I'm gonna win
And when I wake up
I'll tell you about my dream
How the city fell down
On its knees, on its knees

And now I've got to
Wake up, get out
And fight with the world again
Hold back nothing
If I'm gonna win
And when I wake up
I'll tell you about my dream
How the city fell down
On its knees, on its knees
On its knees, on its knees
