Wake up from the slumber that you've been forced into
Climb out from the depths of sleep
To the waking world
Asleep with your eyes wide open
We stumble from place to place
Lulled into compliance
From the whispers in our ears
Well it's time to rise up from our beds

We've sensed that something's wrong
But with eyes closed tight it's hard to see
Just what it is that sedates us
And keeps us from being free

We've been programmed to fall into place
The rank and file members
Of a catatonic state
Washed away and drowning
In this mainstream

Feed the need that burns inside you
This desire cannot be satisfied
This consumption consumes our very being
This consumption consumes you

Once we finally wake up
We will see that the emperor has no clothes or skin upon his face

Demolish all the signs that hang over our heads
Burn down everything that bears their messages

End your consumption of shallow offerings
Shake off the effects of this sleep

Wake up
