What would it take to shake you, wake you from this dream
To make you stumble to your feet to face the light, to feel the heat
Cause you have slept, though prophets preach and sirens scream
To break your placid vista's silence, a palisade of passive violence
And if I can't get through to you, I fear what that could mean
So shed your signal-jamming, Goddamned vanity
We're spinning out towards calamity

The hourglass is running out
Against complacency and doubt
Infernos close that must be doused
Don't turn a blind eye to this burning house
The time is now, the time is now

No circumventing this, you can't just walk away
The blood of generations stains you, and testifies of all you feign to be
And bites the corner of your conscience just to see if you can feel
And holds you up against the glow to find out if you're real
Or are you numb, a native son of this creeping hell
An heir apparent set to watch the ashes fall
It's time to show us all

The hourglass is running out
Against complacency and doubt
Infernos close that must be doused
Don't turn a blind eye to this burning house
The time is now, the time is now

It's not a question of your understanding only, but your empathy
A test, a trial on display under the guiding eye of history
This is the moment you make clear the scope and depth of your ability
To meet the measure of your moment, to keep the promise of your destiny

The hourglass is running out
Against complacency and doubt
Infernos close that must be doused
Don't turn a blind eye to this burning house
The time is now, the time is now
