Shooter Jennings Wake Up! Lyrics

They say good fences

Make good neighbors

For you my friend

This might be true

But you still gotta put

The boards on the windows

To the soul inside of you

That t.v. in the corner

That’s their greatest tool

They poison you mind

When you’re a child

With their fear

And their guilt

And their rules

They teach you that you’re just a number

As they program you in school

So by the time you’re out

In their world on your own

You’ve been trained not to bite

The hand of the cruel

Wake up!

Don’t believe that the system is failing

Don’t believe that the planet is dead

They’ll keep all the food for their fat fucking bellies

And the starving will kill or be fed

And they’ll try to turn me against you

So divided,we’ll turn to them

Because anything strong cannot be conquered from without

Before first being conquered from within.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.

Life is a movie,we are all actors

Don’t let them edit you out.

Life is a movie,we are all actors

Don’t let them edit you out.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.

Don’t let them get you down.
