Whoa, sleepin' the night away
Darkness enclosing the world so desperate for day
We're under the spell of dis-unity ooh ho
When will this giant awake and stand and be free
Now the hour has come
To awaken and redeem the time given to the night
Curse this darkness and stand in the light

Can you hear the alarm echo down the hall?
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
Awake from your sleep 'cause it's time to stand tall
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
(Hey hey hey)

Whoa, been sleeping so long, yea
How can we hope to discern the right from the wrong?
The gauntlet is thrown in the face of denial ooh ha
Each time we sleep through an inch we're losing a mile
We will get this rude awakening to reality
And arise in unity

Can you hear the alarm echo down the hall?
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
Awake from your sleep 'cause it's time to stand tall
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
(Hey hey hey)

It's been dark for so long night is almost gone
(Always darkest before the dawn)
Sunlight soon appearing, a new day it will bring
(Do you feel it?)

Can you hear the alarm echo down the hall?
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
Awake from your sleep 'cause it's time to stand tall
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
(The sleeping giant gets a wake up call)
(Hey hey hey)
