Wide Awake

You can look a hurricane right in the eye
1200 people dead or left to die
Follow the leaders
Were it an eye for an eye, we’d all be blind
Deaf or murdered, of this i’m sure
in this uncertain time

So come pull the sheet over my eyes
so I can sleep tonight
Despite what I’ve seen today
I found you guilty of a crime
of sleeping at a time
when you should have been wide awake

Down on the road the world is floating by
The poor and undefended left behind
While you’re somewhere trading lives for oil
As if the whole world were blind

So come pull the sheet over my eyes
so I can sleep tonight
Despite what I’ve seen today
I found you guilty of a crime
of sleeping at a time
when you should have been wide awake

Come pull the sheet over my eyes
so I can sleep tonight
Despite what I’ve seen today
I found you guilty of a crime
of sleeping at a time
when you should have been wide awake

wide awake! wide awake!
wide awake! wide awake!
