Look at yourself
Your face is bleeding
Your stars and stripes unraveling
You're all dressed up with nowhere to go
A body full of bullet holes
The sands of time are blowing into your naked eyes
You're going soon to realize that your uniform is the outfit you'll be wearing at your funeral

Sleepyhead, the birds are singing
Get out of bed, his majesty is off to start a war again
A filthy game for filthy men
Sleepyhead, it's now or never
History won't last forever
Lying there like a Siamese cat, quietly
Well, did you know that you're asleep?

Even in your dreams

You can spend your free time however you like
You can watch it vanish in the blink of an eye
What you see is what you get
Open your eyes up and you'll see something

With your cameras and your satellites
With your CIA's and your FBI's
What you see is what you get
Open your eyes up, you'll see something then
What if you're blind?
What if you're deaf?
What if you should just wake up sleepyhead?

What you see is what you get
Open your eyes up, you'll see something then
And what if you're blind?
And what if you're deaf?
And what if you're stupid, or disinterested?
What if your brain is too big for your head?
Would you wake up?
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
