about

"Wake Up!" was written for this release as a call to the 61.2% of the current Canadian population under 30 who did not vote in the last federal election, which in conjunction with widespread election fraud, allowed for a corporate coup of our country by the Canadian Conservative Reform Alliance Party and their financial backers. It examines the encroaching corporate police state and the massive transfer of wealth that has occurred at the hands of the Harper government, further exacerbating wealth inequality, eroding the middle class, dismantling Canada’s social programs, and polluting our environment. Voter apathy is a key target for the Republican-styled Conservative brand. Our population needs to wake up to the theft of rights and capital that has been transpiring around them and demand action.

lyrics

They say that they stand on guard for thee, protecting you from fear
But the methods they use, untimely, precise, are anything but just or clear
But they come for your money, and they come for you houses
And they come for your thoughts, and your knowledge
And they come all at once, all that hoarding by night
And by dawn you are regarded as sheep, asleep, as sheep, asleep...

Wake up!

They came at night when you were asleep, probably having a dream
Of a place where you and your children alike could live happily
But they come for your money, and they come for you houses
And they come for your thoughts, and your knowledge
And they come all at once, all that hoarding by night
And by dawn you are regarded as sheep, asleep, as sheep, asleep...

Wake up!
And see for yourself

Wake up and make a difference
Wake up and make a difference
Wake up and make a difference

We're not slaves, we're free thinkers
We're modern people in modern times
We don't have their guns & weapons
But we have our fucking minds
So use them, use them
Put yourself to use and use them
Use your heads, teach your children
Don't confuse them, don't abuse them with lies

Wake up!
