Look out the window
Face to the sun
Proud of the man
you've become.
Aren't you afraid?
Aren't you ashamed?
Aren you the reason that it got this way?

it's time to wake up the mountain,
to right all the wrong we did.

What're you worth?
How much ya get paid?

Aren't you afraid?
Aren't you ashamed?
Are you aware of what it takes to change?

It's time to wake up the mountain,
to right all the wrongs we did.
Tonight we wake up the mountain

Look out the window,
see what you've done
prayin for rain you know will never come.

All of the Earth
scorched by the sun.
All of the Earth..
