Wake Up (It's 1984)

This song is by Oingo Boingo and appears on the album Good For Your Soul (1983).

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 too big to pretend

(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

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

All our lives, leading up to this day
Watching and waiting

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

(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

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

(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...
