Verse 1:
Wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up
in the morning to my everyday beginnings
Know the plays for each inning
So I move with no feelings
But today starts with endings
No movement no feelings
As my tear hits the linen
From this feature fear envisioned
I reach and feel the chillness of her cold skin
My own kin
Sewn from my oats so these notes I won’t hold in
Screams, cant’s and cries
No she can’t be revived
Feelings can’t be described for a pain of such size
She lay with closed eyes in this crib that I made
From the cradle to the grave
Now more than just a phrase
I can’t be okay
I can’t call for help
Cuz these cards she’s been dealt I with upon myself

Cup my eyes with both hands
So no tears will be wasted
I’ll contain the pain
Sustained as I taste it

Wake up wake up wake up wake up

Chorus:
I wish I could wake up and still be a teen
And realize all I’ve seen was just a bad dream
When you’re sewn in the seams
Things all seem serene
Hear the seer sing
It’s just a bad dream

Verse 2:
They say that nightmares are made of these painful scenes
It’s hard to breathe
I’ll make you see
With ease he made the team
For cheese you can’t believe
His family relieved
Debts paid, get received
Gets played and achieves great accolades
Began to act a way that attracted hate
Then one day after a game
Teammate spat in his face
Disgraced he attacked him with rage
They clashed and crashed to his fate
A fracture’s embrace as he awakes to a hospital bed
With all uses lost in his legs
And what is locked in his head
Besides his locks and his dreads
Is the life he once led
With each breath he wished he was dead

Lift your hands to cover your eyes
To cover the cries
Cuz the sucker inside, pride, makes you suffer inside

Wake up Wake up Wake up Wake up

I wish I could wake up and still be a teen
And realize all I’ve seen was just a bad dream
When you’re sewn in the seams
it all seem serene
Hear the seer sing
It’s just a bad dream


Verse 3:
Realize the time you wasted
Because we’re all aging
And your favorite agents have gave you complications
To your mind, body, and soul
Deny, hardly you’re old
Still you gotta pay the toll beyond the crossroads
But before you cross over look at the life you darted over
Think that you can start it over?
You must not be sober
Don’t be somber, just wander as your slumbering along
Cuz you may never wake up to this song

Wake up Wake up Wake up Wake up
