Oingo Boingo – Wake Up lyrics

Wake up! Won't you listen to me
Wake up! Won't you listen to me
Won't you listen to me
Wake up! Won't you listen to me
Wake up! Won't you listen to me
Won't you listen to me

Big brother's watching, we watch him back
We see right through his disguise
He tries to scare us, with angry words
But we all know that they're lies
Whole world is waiting
Just see the fear in their eyes

Whole world is watching, observing every move
Is it beginning or the end?
Just like a chess game, but so intense
That I just don't understand
Anticipation
It's much to big to pretend

Chorus
(wake up), it's 1984
(wake up), but we've been here before
(wake up), it's 1984
(wake up), but we've been here before, (here before)

Big brother's screaming but we don't care
Cause he's got nothing to say
Think of the future, think of the prophecy
Think of the children of today
Big brother's marching
So we all stand in his way
Open your eyes, sisters and brothers
Neatly disguised, so far away
Open your heart, try to remember
Two worlds apart, but so close

(wake up), it's 1984
But we've been here before
(wake up), it's 1984
But we've been here before
All our lives leading up to this day, watching and waiting

Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up!

Open your eyes, sisters and brothers
Neatly disguised, so far away
Open your heart, try to remember
Two worlds apart, but so close

Chorus

Whole world is watching
Anticipating
Big brother's marching
Is it beginning or the end?

Chorus
