Audioslave – Wide Awake lyrics

You can look a hurricane right in the eye
Twelve hundred people dead or left to die
Follow the leaders
Were it an eye for an eye
We'd all be blind, deaf or murdered
This I'm sure
In this uncertain time

So come pull a sheet over my eyes
So I can sleep tonight
Despite what I've seen today
I find you guilty of the crime
Of sleeping (at a) time when you should have been wide awake

Down on the road the world is floating by
The poor and undefended left behind
While you're somewhere trading lives for oil
As if the whole world were blind

So come pull a sheet over my eyes
So I can sleep tonight
Despite what I've seen today
I've found you guilty of the crime
Of sleeping (at a) time
When you should have been wide awake

Come pull this sheet over my eyes
So I can sleep tonight
Despite what I've seen

I found you guilty of the crime
Of sleeping in a time
When you should have been wide awake

Wide Awake
Wide Awake
Wide Awake
Wide Awake
Awake
