SLEEPING WIDE AWAKE

 

There are no excuses anymore

You know the things that hide behind the door

With our shadows longer on the ground

It’s a sign that the sun is going down

The sun is going down

 

You can stop and turn and look away

And your future is the price that we will pay

Like a stone thrown into a lake

It’s not the splash it’s the toll from the wake

That radiates

 

And when it all comes down

 

If you will not change your mind

Then your conscience will be blind

There is so much now at stake

You are sleeping wide awake

 

I can’t believe that you would even ask

I know you see the things behind the mask

And here we are so much hostility

I grit my teeth at our reality

And don’t you look at me

 

And when it all comes down

 

If you will not change your mind

Then your conscience will be blind

There is so much now at stake

You are sleeping wide awake

 

You can’t unsee the things that you have seen

Yet you believe the things that you believe

It feels so wrong, it’s been this way far too long

And later when it’s much too late

‘I told you so’s won’t save us from our fate

 

If you will not change your mind

Then your conscience will be blind

There is so much now at stake

You are sleeping wide awake

Can’t you hear the voices rise?

Can’t you hear the amplified?

The moon the stars up in the sky

Judge us all through the same eye

It’s a choice you’ve got to make

Get it right or same mistakes

Know what’s real and know what’s fake

You are sleeping wide awake

You are sleeping wide awake

You are sleeping wide awake

You are sleeping wide awake

You are sleeping wide awake, wide awake
