WAKE UP, RISE UP

(Calling all angels… we need a little help down here)

 

He drives on cracked and potholed freeways, only to be stuck in a bluetooth cage
Swervin’ in his lane, car and cell phone frying his brain.
5G race, Big Wireless craze, funding the next political campaign. (You know that’s right)
She wears a tinfoil hat, it’s high quality luxurious silver
Protects her brain coz she’s awake’n’ it’s not too soon to tell-
We’ll need them all the time in this wireless radiation hell.


Whatcha gonna do? (Wake up now) Whatchoo gonna do? (Rise up) What are we gonna do?


When we drive on a parkway and we park in a driveway
And on a freeway, yeah yeah, hell yeah you’re gonna pay a toll.
It’s all mixed up, it’s upside down, it’s a tilt-a-whirl.
What are you gonna do if you wanna change the world?
Well stand up and speak up, we can get the justice that we dream of
If we all together free our minds, wake up and rise up, yeah.  (That’s right, right now)

It’s big business being born, it’s all business when you die.
Big Telecom dumbing us down with products, turning us into AI.
Profit over people and planet, wake up before there’s nothing left. (This is our home)
Mother they cut the cord too soon, they birthed me and tore me from you-
Too many needles, I remember, no it’s not supposed to be this way.
Drugs and schedules, injectibles in a 9-5 Hospital business day.

Whatcha gonna do? (Hey wake up, yo)Whatchoo gonna do? (& rise up now)What are we gonna do?


When we drive on a parkway and we park in a driveway
And on a freeway, yeah yeah, hell yeah you’re gonna pay a toll.
It’s all mixed up, it’s upside down, it’s a tilt-a-whirl.
What are you gonna do if you wanna change the world?
Well open your eyes to what’s real, every industry lies and lies until
We all together free our minds, wake up and rise up, yeah.

(Yeah yeah yeah yo, social engineering, consumer conditioning, time to unplug from the machine)

Supersizingfast fries and little useless soundbytes,
Fill the mind up with static and then they medicate the masses.
Hypnotize them with advertising and separate the classes.  (Oh no, no, no, no….wake up)
Line ups and let downs, dumb reality TV breakdowns.
Virtual vision, television but we’ve got less inner vision.

 

Whatcha gonna do? (Wake up, yo) Whatchoo gonna do? (Rise up now) What are we gonna do?

 

When we drive on a parkway and we park in a driveway
And on a FREE WAY, yeah yeah, hell yeah you’re gonna pay a toll.  (beep beep)
It’s all mixed up, it’s upside down, it’s a tilt-a-whirl.
What are you gonna do if you wanna save the world?
We do not consent how dare you, the kids are not alright so we gotta fight
If we all together free our minds, wake up and rise up, yeah.

(Yeah yeah yeah, yeah, wake up and rise up y’all, we can do this


They set our world on fire.

What’s up with all the ElectroSmog?

What’s up with all the skies?


More democracy, less hypocrisy.
Wake up, rise up, don’t ever give up.
