The Simple Facts

from by The Gypsy West



I want to wake up and plain as day
breathe in air the old fashioned way and as I throw open the window
I know I've got to wake up

No time for blame this is not a game
no dice just lives at stake no time to waste or wait as a future is erased
you know you've got to wake them up

the simple facts if we lose this earth to energy companies or worse...
I hope you don't have a need for thirst
you know you've got to
you know you've got to
you know you've got to
wake up wake up

I know it's hard to change the way they want you to stay
and what seems so far away gets closer everyday
as you as I awake

wake me up when it's over
wake me up when I'm older
