Lyrics

Some picture, if you can
A young boy, becoming a man
In a living room of his family home
With the sound of guns
In his head bound
He enjoys the liberties
Had one, for centuries
But he started to question
The strength of his heroes
Is there something else in the ones and zeroes
Is this really how it meant to me
Close my eyes and slowly count to three
Someone wake us up
'Cause no one told us what to do
When we are awake within a dream
And in his fathers eyes
A desire still alive
This might being so much
Though in dozen of years
Under the struggles and burdens
Of million of tears
These things we should have said
Revolution he could have left
Would he give him a purpose
A reason, a meaning
A question to answer
A reason for feeling
Is this really how it meant to me
Close my eyes and slowly count to three
Someone wake us up
'Cause no one told us what to do
When we are awake within a dream
And in the open of context
Sign ups, flaring
So we started to think
That there’s something missing
Wake us up
Wake us up, now
Wake us up
Wake us up, now
Wake us up
Wake us up, now
Wake us up
Wake us up, now
So answer the question
Is this really how it meant to me
Close my eyes and slowly count to three
Someone wake us up
'Cause no one told us what to do
When we are awake within a dream
When we are awake within a dream
When we are awake within a dream
When we are awake within a dream
Someone wake us up
