Song Description

This song is a plea to the listener to awaken! Awaken to their power, their truth, their abilities. Inspiring tune over a familiar sound.

Lyrics

Verse 1

I want this to be clear; I want the world to listen close like I'm whispering here.

Come close come close won't you pull up a chair? Better yet take a stand let me know if you there.

I want you to feel the heat from the energy, the pressure and the pain, the truth in the memory I struggle to retain.

I try to refrain, but denying acclaim is like, separating particles of fire from a flame.

My desire and aim to inspire a change, supercedes any needs of arriving at fame.

But I'm trying to remain, 'cause discipline is easy to achieve though it seems it is hard to maintain.

I've lost and regained, the cost that I'm paying, is more than I can afford to offer again!

I know that everybody has a cross to bear so it's hard complain guess I'm talking in vain,

Chorus:

I want you
to wake up,
I want you,
But it's something you just won't do.
Something you just won't do,
If I can so can you.

(Repeat)

Verse 2:
I'm addicted to the pull and the push; they say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

I want you to reflect, think beyond reality for a sec and just be without an underlying need to project.

I want you to forget, whatever you would regret, because you never make mistakes if you learn to accept.

That right or wrong is a concept that's totally subjective, either one is subject to a persons perspective.

The positive and negative, don't require proof, they apply to everything, that is universal truth.

I want you to be an agent of change, and not actively participate in staying the same.

Recognize that television only wants you to buy, turn it off and suddenly impulsive urges will die!

I just want you to consider my plea, and come out of autopilot if you're flying asleep.

Chorus:

I want you
to wake up,
I want you,
But it's something you just won't do.
Something you just won't do,
If I can so can you.

Verse 3:
The truth in the music is designed to bend hearts; I'm giving you the memoirs that powerful men guard.

What would happen if you opted not to vote, unblocked your throat and softly spoke, you'd rock the boat!

Division & religion is a popular theme, come together now and this is how to stop the machine.

I want you to remember your voice; you've got air and opportunity and power of choice.

I want you to maximize every chance you get, set sail and command the ship, demand more and advance the script,

Or be silent if you can't commit, expand the grip eventually the hand will slip.

Use the wisdom that was given to us, embrace the opposition and then come from a position of love.

The truth is eclipsing the vision above, listen to what the wise ones are whispering of.

Chorus:

I want you
to wake up,
I want you,
But it's something you just won't do.
Something you just won't do,
If I can so can you.
(Repeat)
