Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

Ay, for many years we've been lost in our tears
When will we wake? We've got to wake
Ay, for many years the prophets have spoken
But will we hear?
And still we can't find no peace of mind

When will we wake? We've got to wake
When will we wake, awake? We've got to wake, awake

Said we've fought so many battles, for who?
Yet our minds remain in shackles
'Cause if we play dead and blind, we'll never see the sign

When will we wake? We've got to wake
When will we wake, awake? We've got to wake, awake, ay

From down on time began
Runners polluting by means of exploiting the land
And they tried to close the open doors
Before we slipped through

If we don't know by now, tell you my friend we'll never know
If you stand subdued, tell me now would you go back?
The game was set to lose, got to play to win it, yeah
Lust of life is greed, it's churning poverty

When will we wake? We've got to wake
Oh, all, all I wanna know
When will we wake, awake? We've got to wake, awake, ay

Open up your eyes and you will see
Open up your eyes and you will see
Open up your eyes and you will see
Open up your eyes and you will see
Open up your eyes and you will see
Open up your eyes and you will see
Open up your eyes and you will see, oh
