I've been searching for peace. Looking for quiet.
We inhabit a place where the majority's mindless.
Bodies are spineless, though we all speak of violence.
Selling our souls cuz you want me to buy it.

Cash in, cash out. Cuz I'll never sell out.
Not to you or to the ones who caught me when I fell down.
OH, we coming back.
If you're offended, don't forgive, don't forget it.
If you want it, come and get it.
I'll defend it and protect it god dammit!
I'm sick of how we take advantage
Of one another, hide and cover, seeking magic
To fix every problem we face.
Instead of standing up strong on our own two legs.
This is the shake up. Wake up! Take off the makeup.
A short time that we take up.
I'm telling everybody to wake up.

When you hear the sound and it hits and ground, you're alive.

Thats cuz we never take the time just to open our eyes
and realize that we fantasize and live in disguise.
Ignoring poverty lines.
Ignoring prophecy signs.
Everyday 9 to 5.
Working a sweat for a weekly check.
But what's it even worth when the whole country's in debt.
We're living cynical, we're pitiful, we'll never reach the pinnacles
If we always start to change but we never finish up.
If you're feeling like I feel and you know you've had enough.

When you hear the sound and it hits the ground, you're alive.

And you know that this is all that we have in our hearts.

Take notice, things are about to shake up.
Take notice, people about to wake up.
We are strong and not alone.
