America is a big country
America is a big idea
I once got a fortune cookie that said
America is a place where people can invent themselves
So when I found myself making out with two girls at once
At the Linkin Memorial in Washington, DC
I knew what that fortune cookie said had been
Beautiful, strange and true

Wake up to America, up to America
Feel your broken heart
Beaten' like a drum
Wake up to America, up to America
Even in the dark
Shine for everyone

America, I've been reading your history
And alot of it sounds like Empire building
America the world needs a foreign policy of compassion
I still believe that somewhere underneath all this mess
America's a good country
'Cause I guess I believe that people
In their hearts are essentially good
They just get greedy and they get scared

Wake up to America, up to America
Feel your broken heart
Beaten' like a drum
Wake up to America, up to America
Even in the dark
Shine for everyone

America it must get so lonley being you sometimes
Up all night, no one to share the long drives with
Don't worry we won't let you fall asleep at the wheel

Wake up to America, up to America
Feel your broken heart
Beaten' like a drum
Wake up to America, up to America
Even in the dark
Shine for everyone

Wake up to America, up to America
Up to America
Up to America
Up to America
Up to America
America
Wake up to America, up to America
