Have I been sleeping?
Ive been so still, afraid of crumbling
Have I been careless?
Dismissing all the distant rumblings

Take me where I am supposed to be
To comprehend the things that I cant see

'Cause I need to move, I need to wake up
I need to change, I need to shake up
I need to speak out, somethings got to break up
Ive been asleep and I need to wake up now

And as a child I danced like it was 1999
And my dreams were wild
The promise of this new world would be mine

Now I am throwing off the carelessness of youth
To listen to an inconvenient truth

That I need to move, I need to wake up
I need to change, I need to shake up
I need to speak out, somethings got to break up
Ive been asleep and I need to wake up now

I am not an island
I am not alone
I am my intentions
Trapped here in this flesh and bone

And I need to move, I need to wake up
I need to change, I need to shake up
I need to speak out, somethings got to break up
Ive been asleep and I need to wake up now

I want to change, I need to shake up
I need to speak out, oh, somethings got to break up
Ive been asleep and I need to wake up now
