Wake-Up

Wake Up, Get up

Wake Up, Get Up

 

Wake Up, Get Up stop killing yourself

Wake Up; Get Up can’t be no one else

Wake Up, Get Up you think you alone

Wake Up, Get Up you ain’t on your own

 

 

Listen, that’s your heartbeat

You’re alive

Blood’s runnin’ through your veins

Life can be same

 

You think that since you’ve done wrong and won’t forgive yourself

That God has cosigned the madness and damned you to hell

I beg of you to notice the sun, the skies and the birds that fly

I beg of you to notice the earth still spins from day to night

Despite the flood of desolate waters you are still alive

It’s too early in the season for you bow down and die

 

Why you, why you, Why you, Why you…

 

Why you hiding

You’ve got something

That only you can give

To this old world

That’s what we want

That’s what we need

That’s what we want

That’s what we need, need

 

Stop killing yourself

Can’t be no one else

You think you alone

You ain’t on your own

 

Get Up, Wake up

Get up, Wake up

Wake Up, Get Up

Get Up, Wake Up

 

You think you alone

You ain’t on your own

 

Wake Up

Get Up

Wake Up

Get Up

 

Commentary

 

Poverty, struggle, trauma, lack of opportunity can render the spirit paralyzed by gripping emotions that keep us from moving forward.  This song and drum serve as a call to the spirit to get up and out of the ruts we find ourselves in and move.
