​Wake Up

This song is by Story of the Year and appears on the album The Black Swan (2008).

We are alive for a moment
One second in the great abyss of time
All the bleeding and all the hate
Just one blink of an eye
All the conflict
Visits dire pain on human life
Are we missing what it is to be alive?

One by one the pieces fall
Until our pride defeats us all
Or we learn to live without it

WAKE UP - to the sound of this time bomb
WAKE UP - to it's deafening song
WAKE UP - cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone

Our innocence is a virtue
But our arrogance will only leave us blind,
Unattended
Without anyone to save our idle lives
Will we find out
That everything we know exists inside
Of a fraction of a fraction

And one by one the pieces fall again

WAKE UP - to the sound of this time bomb
WAKE UP - to it's deafening song
WAKE UP - cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone

One by one the pieces fall
Until our pride defeats us all

WAKE UP - to the sound of this time bomb
WAKE UP - to it's deafening song
WAKE UP - cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone
