  • Then came the moment when I lost my will
    I prayed for mercy, please don't take me away
    Voices in the distance, beautiful
    Somebody's calling beyond control
    Have you ever felt desperation?
    This whole world is filled with loss
    We will regret it when we sleep
    Promises never meant to keep
    When all of the shadows lead
    As a good man's hiding a dream
    Do they know that the world's on fire?

    Time has a price we can't afford
    An empty glass and an open door
    You get what you paid for in sweat
    And a voice says please don't forget

    Do they know that the world's on fire?
    Do they know that the time is now?
    Do they know that you gotta stand up, stand up
    Let your voice speak out
    Do they know that it's time?

    Caught in a maze you can't escape
    The flickering lights, and the colored lens
    The walls that we build just close in
    Until we decide to begin
    Are we distracted by the sun?
    The gleaming jewels, and the beating drums
    Is it going the distance we fear?
    Have you heard that we're already here?

    Do they know that the world's on fire?
    Do they know that the time is now?
    Do they know that you gotta stand up, stand up
    Let your voice speak out
    Do they know that the world's on fire?
    Do they know that the time is here?
    Do they know that you gotta stand up, stand up
    Let your voice be clear
    Do they know that it's time?

    Some will say we've gone too far
    We're on the edge and in too deep
    Some will say we're too far gone
    You can't erase the tragedy
