Julian Marley – Awake lyrics
Whoa!! [Repeat x3]
For many years, we've been lost in our tears,
When will we wake? We've got to wake. Ay!!
For many years, the prophets have spoken, but will we hear?
And still we can't find, no peace of mind.

When will we wake?
We've got to wake
Awake [Repeat x2]

Said we've fought so many battles, for who?
Yet our minds remain in shackles.
Cause if we play dead and blind, we'll never see, the sign.

When will we wake?
We've got to wake.
Awake. Ay [Repeat x2]

From down on time began.
Runners polluting by means of exploiting the land.
And they tried to close the open doors, before we slipped through.
If we don't know by now, I'll tell you my friend we'll never know.
If you stand subdued, tell me now would you go back,
The game was set to lose, got to play to win it, yeah!!

Lust of life is greed. It's churning for the (?)
