Darryl Worley – Wake Up America lyrics
Wake up America I got a problem
Something you may not believe
There is poison in the darkness
Spreading like a bad disease
I never thought I'd find myself in this condition
Sitting by while children die from their addictions

(Chorus:)
I'm just a small town I have no tongue to speak
I have no arms to hold them while their dying in my streets
So I have to wonder does any body care.
Lord is there any hope out there?

Wake up America I got a problem
Venom flowing thru my veins
I see families town to pieces
By crystal meth and crack cocaine
Some of those sworn to provide us with protection
Just turn their backs and cut a deal with the infection

(Chorus:)
I'm just a small town I have no tongue to speak
I have no arms to hold them while their dying in my streets
So I have to wonder does any body care.
Lord is there any hope out there?

All those years I gave them peaceful sanctuary
Now I'm a grave yard where the innocent are buried

(Chorus:)
I'm just a small town I have no tongue to speak
I have no arms to hold them while their dying in my streets
So I have to wonder does any body care.
Lord is there any hope out there?

Lord is there any hope out there?
Oh is there any hope out there?
Wake up America I got a problem
[fading out]
I got a problem
It's like venom flowing thru my veins
