Days they force you
Back under those covers
Lazy mornings they multiply
But glory's waiting
Outside your window
So wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

Tongues are violent
Personal and focused
Tough to beat with
Your steady mind
But hearts are stronger after broken
So wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

All these victims
Stand in line for
The crumbs that fall from the table
Just enough to get by
All the while
Your invitation
Wake on up from your slumber
Come on open up your eyes

Take from vandals
All you want now
But please don't trade it in for life
Replace the feeble
With the fable
Wake on up from your slumber
And open up your eyes

All these victims
Stand in line for
The crumbs that fall from the table
Just enough to get by
All the while
Your invitation
Wake on up from your slumber
Come on open up your eyes

Sing like we used to
Dance when you want to
Taste of the breakthrough
And open wide

All these victims
Stand in line for
The crumbs that fall from the table
Just enough to get by
All the while
Your invitation
Wake on up from your slumber
Come on open up your eyes

Sing like we used to
And dance like you want to
Open up your eyes

    Romans 13:11-14
    "11 and do this, understanding the present time: the hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 the night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14 rather, clothe yourselves with the lord jesus christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh"

    Our time is short on earth and we need not to waste it. Our time is precious and we are called to witness to others.

    Ephesians 5:14-16 therefore he says: "awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and christ will give you light. "
    See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
    Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

    Times are tough but there is light in the darkness. You have to wake up, look for the lightness, and trust the lord.
