God don't make promises that He don't keep
You got some big dreams, baby
But in order to dream you gotta still be asleep

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain?

Counterfeit philosophies have polluted all of your thoughts
Karl Marx has got ya by the throat
Henry Kissinger's got you tied up in the knots

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain?

You got innocent men in jail, your insane asylums are filled
You got unrighteous doctors dealin' drugs that'll never cure your ills

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain?

You got men who can't hold their peace
And woman who can't control their tongue
The rich seduce the poor and the old are seduced by the young

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain?

Adulterers in churches and pornography in the schools
You got gangsters in power and lawbreakers makin' rules

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up an' strengthen the things that remain?

Spiritual advisers and gurus to guide your every move
Instant inner peace and every step you take's got to be approved

When you gonna wake up, said, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up an' strengthen the things that remain?

Do you ever wonder just what God requires?
You think He's just an errand boy to satisfy your wandering desires

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up an' strengthen the things that remain?

You can't take it with you and you know it's too worthless to be sold
They tell you 'Time is money' as if your life was worth its weight in gold

There's a man on a cross and He been crucified for you
Believe in His power that's about all you got to do

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up an' strengthen the things that remain?
