Hands are working hard, mine hardly move for a thing to do
your eyes seem weak from getting no sleep
I'm gunna talk like a rebel, like uneducated babble
I want something new, not a word defined by you
I don't know if ill be lost, if you're with me or not
either ways boss, leave me to die on a cross
I've seen people give most everything, my brother for his lover and a friend for the pain but i still wish you would say my name
We've got some waking up to do
and i can't wait till these dreams all come true
we've got some waking up to do
and i can't wait i cant wait
so I'm looking for words, for a reason to talk to you
I don't think I'm quite lost yet but its starting to burn
so you think I'd hold my bet, do you think that i would learn
but the courts adjourned, and now I'm sentenced without you
Do you see it in my eyes or do you only see black and white
truth is my sister died and it doesn't make any sense why
its starting to ache and i cant take, gotta get a break while my friends remain baked I'm just waiting for the train, with nothing to say, but i still wish you would say my name
..when we wake, things stay the same way when we wake up.
