VERSE #1
Synchronicity
Came to me like a breath of fresh air
Helping me to see
All the things I thought were never there
Now the truth is out
I can see that it's all a game
Now the truth is out
Beauty shines on another way

CHORUS
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up call, wake up call
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up call, wake up call
Stand and watch as the empire falls, the empire falls, the empire falls
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up to it all

RAP (MR J MEDEIROS)
Who gave ya that sweet shop meat stock peaks cause we eat slop
The sheep flock seeking the feed till they knee drop
With enemies like these who needs cops
You telling me these Heli’s in the trees don’t eavesdrop
Please stop.
They modify the rules to fit their needs
Then they modify our food to fit their seeds
The bottom line is that these rich don’t bleed
The news don’t feed they’ve all assumed these kids don’t read
They clip our dreams by any means of tyranny
Mirror me I separate myself from the fear in their conspiracies
So keep me free let me be me this T.V. don’t see me
This BBC this CNN don’t they be who defend men
See I break like when tree’s don’t bend hand me a pen
So I can pen me a quote Alice send me a note
Now 11/11 is all she wrote

VERSE #2
Big conspiracy
That's all I ever seem to hear
Always tryna break me
Pull me down in their ring of fear
Now the truth is out
You can be like the God you are
Helpin me to see
Slap it up take it to the stars

CHORUS
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up call, wake up call
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up call, wake up call
Stand and watch as the empire falls, the empire falls, the empire falls
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up to it all

SPEECH
And the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world, that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age a security. By the promise of these things brutes have risen to power, but they lie they do not fulfil their promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world!

BRIDGE
Let us fight to free the world
Let us fight to free the world.

CHORUS
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up call, wake up call
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up call, wake up call
Stand and watch as the empire falls, the empire falls, the empire falls
11:11 was my wake up call, my wake up to it all
