Peyoti For President – Wake Up Rise Up lyrics

Now I don't wanna shit, but there's something goin' down
Just 20 years from now the sun & the moon and the clouds
Could be different from today
Not too pleasant they say
The man in the suit with the starched buttoned collar is sweating to death but we're too hot to bother

We go so fast that the world will never catch us
At least that's what we'd like
But we, scorch the sky with our careless lives
Look at the people that we vote to represent us
The mess that they now present us with
Oh I oh I, it makes me want to cry

Wake Up, Rise Up
Listen to your conscience
21st Century up-rising is so overdue
And it's down to me and you
It's your life their lies you choose
What you're gonna do
Or just sit back, relax, turn on the tv

It's their to control us
To sedate manipulate and console us
& just in case you didn't know
I thought I'd come and tell you so cause
We the People, break the system,
Just in case you thought that they were listening forget...
They're too busy beatin' each other
You're mother, you're father you're sister, you're brother...

Wake Up, Rise Up listen to your conscience
Cause it's your responsibility
Not her, not him, not they, but me
