07. Wake Me

Cut & Move
by Day Of Fire



 

Just a mother and sons living under the gun
Bruises on their backs were just another
Sign of the push & the shove & the lack of the love
On the side of the tracks that they were brought up
Now theyíre speaking it out through the silence & doubt
Try to figure it out but get caught up
In the here and the now & the where & the how
You know what itís about when they say

Wake me when itís over
Pick me up Iím on the ground
Wake me when itís over now!

Sheís just a girl on the run hit the streets so undone
Mistreated under the sheets by her father
Keeps her heart cold & numb thoughts she canít overcome
Still she looks for the one that could save her
Now sheís working it out in the corner of town
Between 7th and south you will find her
With her head in the clouds & her back on the ground
You know what itís about when she says

Wake me when itís over
Pick me up Iím on the ground
Wake me when itís over
Show me where the light is found
Wake me itís over now!

Where are the fathers of the fatherless?

Now theyíre speaking it out through the silence & doubt
Try to figure it out but get caught up
In the here and the now & the where & the how
You know what itís about when the say

Wake me when itís over
Pick me up Iím on the ground
Wake me when itís over
Show me where the light is found
Wake me itís over
I swear I will not make a sound
Wake me when itís over
Wake me when itís over
Wake me when itís over

Wake me, wake me, wake me, wake me
When itís over
When itís over
When itís over
When itís over

Behind the Song:
"A hard rocking song that deals with life on the wrong side of the tracks. Growing up in a broken home and living on the streets." - Josh Brown (from Day Of Fire)
