Chris Cornell - Wide Awake Lyrics

Translate Deutsch, French, Italiano
You can a look a hurricane right in the eye
1200 people dead or left to die
Follow the leaders, were it an eye for an eye we'd all be blind
Deaf or murdered, and this I'm sure in this uncertain time
So come pull the sheet over my eyes
So I can sleep tonight
Despite what I've seen today
I found you guilty of a crime, of sleeping at a time
When you should have been wide awake
[Verse 2]
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
I found you guilty of a crime
Of this I know
Wide awake! Wide awake! Wide awake! Wide awake!
Yeah, yeah, yeah
