Lyrics
It's time to make a change. It's time to open our eyes. I hate the way we chase greed and make winning a game to be played it's all take and no giving. We claim that the aim is to be making a living yet all we're gaining by sinning is pain. And making a killing is only killing yourself. Giving your wealth power to strangle your spiritual health; we're sinning by stealth; living in a hipocritical world we're all preaching about heaven and yet we're living like hell! Coz what we see is possibly the worst case of hipocrisy as a small minority live it up in luxury. In contrast the vast majority's in poverty obviously something's gotta be wrong with this inequality. But as long as we justify this sort of robbery through talk of economy, bollocks in politics and philosophy, then probably nothing's ever gonna be different, isn't it? It's about time we woke up and followed our dreams! Wake Up! Wake Up! The time has come for us to face up to the direction we're heading with our behaviour. This whole world needs a shake up! We feed on greed until we're numb and comfortable; until someone can drum the call to succumb to war, then they'll give all the guns to poor people ship them overseas and dump them all on the shores where Rule Number One is: 'Kill someone before you get killed yourself.' There's no fun at all. And these bloody wars are usually done because some fat cat needs cash and there's funds to score! And isn't it wonderful, how there are children who hunger for food and never know there are people who squander it all? Tell me, how can we refuse to love the poor? We need to wear their shoes. Open your heart, and open your lungs for more air; show you care; don't be irresponsible. And if you can see how this world's become such a nightmare then tell me, what the heck do we slumber for? Wake Up! Wake Up! The time has come for us to face up to the direction we're heading with our behaviour. This whole world needs a shake up! Be a part of the solution! A revolution against the confusion caused by material prostitution! Be a part of the solution! We've got the truth, so it's useless trying to produce any excuses! Be a part of the solution! A revolution against the confusion caused by material prostitution! Be a part of the solution! We've got the truth, so it's useless trying to produce excuses! We allow the system to get our brains from an early and tender age and teach us the meaning of life is all about getting paid! People then get a trade, seeking to get a wage regardless of whether their job deceitfully tends to rape the resources of every place! And of course they feel no remorse coz all that's ever important at all is to generate more of these profits to go to corporate heavyweights... the bosses sitting relaxed in their offices where they wait for their profits to rocket, cut their losses allow their pockets to accumulate; it's just hypocrisy! But it never is too late to think of doing something to stop it. We need to eliminate this nonsense by facing up to the problems within ourselves. Stop chasing wealth and start to follow our conscience because the consequences of irresponsible living is hell! Truth is available to anybody who wants it, but tell me, who's gonna follow it if you don't follow it yourself?! Wake Up! Wake Up! The time has come for us to face up to the direction we're heading with our behaviour. This whole world needs a shake up!
