Whether you Wake up to silence or a rooster call, darkness or light, love or a fight, You still woke up. Day or night, even if your hope is gone, You woke up. So keep moving on. Because however it happened, You woke up. And that's another chance to change things. Another chance to live.
Wake up, wake up The Whole World Is Watching And your skin is crawling I wonder why it's Bubbling, boiling Is it alive or am I? Lifting the digital lid to let them in Feeds that feed my insatiable hunger For what my ex is doing now Soon becomes irrelevant When people are dying
Who will lose their life In front of the next camera? Why does it take so much Just to open our eyes ? Just to listen, just Sit down Get off him, please
I don’t want to hear another mother Crying for her son Another wife sister brother I don’t want to watch their children Learn why their daddy died I don’t want to be this detached From loss of life because I’ve lost my life I don’t want to hear from a clown Or discuss his position, even his mind I refuse him my energy I know big and he is the smallest What is a President Sorry, who? What government The one that destroys us? Puts everyone in in cages, our strongest men, our brightest children Makes us watch From our couches From our desks Because we are that good at multitasking Pillaging, ******, recognizing Shrugging and closing the door The powerful people killing real people of power Of using color to teach color and power flowing To keep it going What does it mean To put a human beneath you We were not made for this But we built it anyway Was I made for this? I don’t want to be here God, I am lucky to be here I am here
