We are alive for a moment
One second in the great abyss of time
All the bleedin', all the hate, just one blink of an eye
All the conflicts, it 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
We learn to live without it

(Wake up)
To the sound of this time bomb
(Wake up)
To its deafening song
(Wake up)
'Cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone, 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

One by one the pieces fall again

(Wake up)
To the sound of this time bomb
(Wake up)
To its deafening song
(Wake up)
'Cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone, until it's gone

(Wake up)
To the sound of this time bomb
(Wake up)
To its deafening song
(Wake up)
'Cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone, until it's gone away

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

One by one the pieces fall
(One by one the pieces fall)
Until our pride defeats us all
Defeats us all, yeah

(Wake up)
To the sound of this time bomb
(Wake up)
To its deafening song
(Wake up)
'Cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone, until it's gone

(Wake up)
To the sound of this time bomb
(Wake up)
To its deafening song
(Wake up)
'Cause you don't know what you've got until it's gone
Until it's gone away, it's gone away
