Levellers – Wake The World lyrics

Been sitting in silence safe inside four walls Trying to remember the moment when we changed the rules Do you take to your bed or do you take the cure Been getting out of my head lately that's for sure

So tell me when are we gonna wake the world

Take a look around to see who's still listening Found them swaddled in lies they find so comforting The electric eye will always tell you so Don't want the truth around me No I don't want to know

You were right when you were young Could you ever see it all come undone You were brave when you were young Would you ever believe it could all come undone

Don't want to get to a place I don't recognise Where we've all bought the world But left with second prize Dragged down by the words of a hollow song Left in a state of selfish babylon
