lyrics

It’s time to…shatter the illusion, pardon the intrusion, the world’s in need of a soul transfusion
So much talking, not much listening, deafened by the noise there’s a lot we’re missing

Livin’ lonely lives of desperation, always on the run, what’s the destination? Is there really any? Does anybody care?

Oh...get up, rise up, everybody open your eyes up
Get up, wake on up, the time has come to shake things up
We gotta jump on in, take that leap, life is short and talk is cheap
Rouse yourself from your restless sleep, now is not the time for counting sheep

Weighed down by…apathy and lethargy, we search for a chemical recipe
Put our faith in our prize possessions, celebrity, youth & self-obsession,

More bread, yet another circus, caught up in the drama, hung up on the surface...is there any reason? Does anybody care?

Oh...get up, rise up, everybody open your eyes up
Get up, wake on up, the time has come to shake things up
We gotta jump on in, take that leap, life is short and talk is cheap
Rouse yourself from your restless sleep, now is not the time for counting sheep

Slowly the colors are fading to gray
Dreams that we’ve shared, they’re slipping away
So put down your fiddles, come out of your shells
There’s no time to lose, let’s ring out the bells

Oh...get up, rise up, everybody open your eyes up
Get up, wake on up, the time has come to shake things up
We gotta jump on in, take that leap, life is short and talk is cheap
Rouse yourself from your restless sleep, cause now is the time to…

Get up, rise up, everybody open your eyes up
Get up, wake on up, the time has come to shake things up
We gotta jump on in, take that leap, life is short and talk is cheap
Rouse yourself from your restless sleep, now is the time to...

Get up, rise up, everybody wake up...
