Seatbelts, no smoking
Sedated, but I wanna be
Throwing chairs not sleeping on the plane
The dirt and the energy
The real world, where I wanna be
Throwing chairs, not sleeping on the plane

I want to wake up low
In the world below
I want to wake up low

The failure and the hunger
Ignored so far below us here
Middle class still sleeping on the plane

I want to wake up low
In the world below
I want to love life low
Where we need it most
I want to wake up low
Wake up low

I want to wake up low
In the world below
I want to love life low
Where we need it most
I want to wake up low
I want to wake up low

    General CommentJon Foreman was meant to sing this song on his friend Daniel Victor's project Neverending White Lights, Act:1:Goodbye Friends of the Heavenly Bodies but it got cut from the song list. Interesting bit of info, think about it.

    General CommentI've heard that there's actually a whole verse of this song before what I have, but the version I have, and the video on youtube, only have what I posted.

    General Commentthe first stanza is on chordie.com Seatbelts, no smoking, sedated, but I wanna be
    Throwing chairs not sleeping on the plane
    The dirt, and the energy, the real world , where I wanna be
    Throwing chairs, not sleeping on the plane.
