lyrics

Don’t forget to wake up
On the way down
Open up your eyes along the way
It’s bigger then the small talk
Of this small town
They’re the voices that will wake you
On the way down

Loyalty is sold to the highest bidder
As they announce another winner
Where do all the losers go?
When the T.V’s on
Misshapen and forgotten
Their fresh look now is rotten
Ephemeral material
It’s God’s joke on the youth

I don’t know why
He wants to take away tomorrow
When all you ever had was
Yesterday’s old news

Don’t forget to wake up
On the way down
Open up your eyes along the way
It’s bigger then the small talk
Of this small town
They’re the voices that will wake you
On the way down

The attitude was lost
In the aging process
Blame it on the one’s who bought us
And wrapped us into plastic
Spoon fed to the masses

I don’t know why
They want to take away tomorrow
When all you ever had was
Yesterday’s old news

I don’t know why
They wanna take away tomorrow
When all you ever were was
Yesterday’s old news

Don’t forget to wake up
On the way down
Open up your eyes along the way
It’s bigger then the small talk
Of this small town

They’re the voices that’ll wake you
On the way down

They’re the voices that’ll wake you
On the way down (2x)

Don’t forget to wake up...
