Lyrics

Wake up, people wake up
See what you're doin' to the land
Wake up, people, wake up
You're tyin' God's providin' hand
You know a day's gonna come
When man's a ghost
And there's one concrete slab
From coast to coast
A day's gonna come
You'll see what you're doin' to the land

Wake up, people, wake up
Stop dumpin' shit into the sea
Come on and wake up, people, wake up
Can't you let the fishes be
You know a day's gonna come
When you need a drink
And you'll just get oil
From your kitchen sink
Said a day's gonna come
You'll see what you're doin' to the sea

You better wake up, people, wake up
Look what's becomin' of the sky
Come on and wake up, people, wake up
That make you have to cough and cry
You know a day's gonna come
When the sun won't shine
And you won't see the shit
For the grease and slime
A day's gonna come
When you see what you're doin' to the

Sky and sea and snow and lightning
Wait upon the summer air
Birds in flight and seasons giving
Signs that life is growing bare

Sky and sea and snow and lightning
Wait upon the summer air
Birds in flight and seasons giving
Signs that life is growing bare

Wake up, people, wake up
