This is our city of the dead
Another life holds it's weary head
We hope, we try, we live, survive
Counting days, trying to get by
Waiting for the calling
Anticipation in the air
We hope and dream of difference
City sleeping, unaware

Break the silence, WAKE THE DEAD
Running through these streets alone
I'll kick and scream, let's break the hold
'cause I swear, and this won't render useless
I promise you, we've come this far
And I'm not stopping, I'm not stopping now
I'm not hiding in shadows
Wake up, Send out this message, it's clear

You said, you said, you said
This time was gonna be different
WAKE UP THE DEAD
[2x]

Coming alive, something stirs inside
This isn't over yet
Shake off the dirt
Swallow regret
Stop living under the weight
Living under the weight of regret
Your regrets
DON'T LOSE HOPE
Don't let it happen to you
DON'T LOSE HOPE
Which side are you gonna choose?
'cause I believe, I believe it's in you RISE!

We said, we said, we said
This time was gonna be different
WAKE UP THE DEAD
[4X]

    this song is basically the best pump up song ever, besides the extreme energy of the song itself, its all about don't give up because you may not get another chance
    what they mean by wake the dead is give someone another chance because if you give up on something without even trying, you will regret it forever and thats like being dead in a way
    so it means just go for it, dont lose hope, dont just sit back and let life pass you by
