"Wake Up" as written by Christopher John Cheney, Scott Bradley Owen and Andy Douglas Strachan....
I've been buried in the sand,
I've come down with no place to land
I don't need you to understand it's not what I had planned

All the hunger, all the yearning
With the lifeline, that you're burning
Poison lessons that you're learning
The road ahead is turning

[Chorus]
Suicidal education (wake up, wake up)
It got sold to our generation (wake up, wake up)
Wake up to the, manipulation (wake up, wake up)
Wake up to the situation (wake up, wake up)
Suicidal education (wake up)

Stick together, side by side
We no longer, need to hide
From the darkness, into the light
Now is your time

I need something to know the pain
Forget me and forget my name
Waited for the, time to arrive
No one gets out of here alive

[Chorus]

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

I've been buried in the sand,
I've come down with no place to land
I don't need you to understand it's not what I had planned

Suicidal education
It got sold to our generation

Wake up to the, manipulation
Wake up to the, situation
Suicidal education

Suicidal education
It got sold to our generation

    General CommentI think this song has many meanings but to me it sounds like a song about the cult of materialism also known as modern society. And how from a young age we go to school "education" where they engrain the ideologies of modern society and how material things are the full extent of reality.

    People need to wake up to this dilemma. It's the system, the system has fucked everyone. They tell us our ultimate goal in life is to have money, money to buy material things that mean nothing. They make us work like machines and then our time of is spent consuming material objects.

    Our life cycle is to Work, Buy, Consume, and then Die.

    WAKE UP!
