Rockin' Rich Lynch: SONG - Wake Up

So, I bitch a lot about the political process in America. It goes on too long. There's way too much money in the game. I can't even get a receipt when I vote. My wife got sick of me talking about it. She said to do something about it and the song "WAKE UP" was born. With perfect co-production efforts from Nashville's incomparable Nick Johnson.


LYRICS (Words and Music by Rich Lynch)

Verse:
I'm gonna vote
with a conscience
Pull the lever
with my heart
But, I really wish
we could make
a brand new start
in the way
we do things
and how we
get em done
First off get the
money out of politics
Next maybe draft
one Nikki Sixx
Man, they'd go
wild in the streets
If he'd ever run

Chorus:
So, wake up, wake up
and smell what's brewing
In the U.S.A.
It's US they're screwing
And far too many
now know that's true
So, wake up, wake up
and smell what's brewing
Stay conscious and alert
to what they're doing
We need many more parties
than just these tired old two

Verse:
How long does it take
to make your selection
We take too much time
to hold an election
it should
really last no longer
than say
seven months
Don't take my disdain
as a sign of rejection
But, we all could use some
quiet and reflection
and think things over
like those
Tibetan monks

Chorus:
So, wake up, wake up
and smell what's brewing
In the U.S.A.
It's US they're screwing
And far too many
now know that's true
So, wake up, wake up
and smell what's brewing
Stay conscious and alert
to what they're doing
We need many more parties
than just these tired old two

Verse:
So I'll cast a vote
of no confidence
due to sticker shock
and a lack of evidence
hey powers that be
Won't you
please take note
Don't trust your purity
and we need to be certain
we want surety
and when
I close that curtain
just know that
I want
a receipt
when I vote

Chorus:
So, wake up, wake up
and smell what's brewing
In the U.S.A.
It's US they're screwing
And far too many
now know that's true
So, wake up, wake up
and smell what's brewing
Stay conscious and alert
to what they're doing
We need many more parties
than just these tired old two

Outro:
I'm gonna vote
with a conscience
Pull the lever
with my heart
But, I really wish
we could make
a brand new start
in the way
we do things
and how we
get em done
