C#m  A (x2) C#m A B A

It seems that things are so screwed up
We can’t see eye to eye
We fight each other and create distress
Ignoring the government’s lies
Why can’t we see it’s orchestrated
So that we act this way
Is our pride and blindness worth
The price that we pay

Why don’t we stand together
and see how we’re the same
instead of quibbling over stupidity
and playing Big Brother’s game
We’ve given in to hypocrisy
and denial, how insane
We praise so much what we don’t use
this thing we call a brain

CHORUS
E                   B
It’s time for us to wake up
D                   A
to see what we can be
It’s time for things to shake up
our bovine complacency
Yeah it’s time to wake up
arise from our comfy chair
Yeah it’s time to shake up
and finally be aware

There’s so much more to life than this
there’s more than fear and lies
the idiot box, the media’s tool
that keeps us hypnotized
we could be living such rich lives
adventures could be lived
instead we give in to the game
and the empty prizes it gives
