Levellers - Wake The World Lyrics




Been sitting in silence, safe inside four walls
Trying to remember the moment when we changed the rules
Do you take to your bed or do you take the cure?
Been getting out of my head lately that's for sure

So tell me when, oh, when
Are we gonna wake the world?
When, oh, when
Are we gonna wake the world
Are we gonna wake the world?

So I took a look around to see who's still listening
Found them swaddled in lies they find so comforting
The electric eye will always tell you so
Don't want the truth around me, no, I don't want to know

So tell me when, oh, when
Are we gonna wake the world?
When, oh, when
Are we gonna wake the world
Are we gonna wake the world?

You were right when you were young
Could you ever see it all come undone
You were brave when you were young
Would you ever believe it could all come undone?

Don't want to get to a place I don't recognize
Where we've all bought the world, but left with second prize
Dragged down by the words of a hollow song
Left in a state of selfish Babylon

So tell me when, oh, when
Are we gonna wake the world?
When, oh, when
Are we gonna wake the world?

When, oh, when
Are we gonna wake the world
Are we gonna wake the world?

    Although this isn't best of Lev's album, this song is simply amazing. It punches your mind with blows you love. One of my long time favs.

  4. krazykittykat100

    The chorus to this is heartbreaking. Despair sounds like this. Makes me cry every time I hear it
