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

[Chorus]
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
Coz' I guess I believe that people in their hearts are esentially good
They just get greedy and they get scared

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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
