Waking Up Lyrics

by Soja

It's a real strange world.
Sometimes it feels like it's not my world
But it's the only world I got
Or maybe, maybe it's different now
Different now than it used to be
I don't know, I can't remember

Cause you can feel it in a summer's breeze
There's something in the trees
Some kind of long lost feeling
It kinda feels like there's something wrong
Something that we doin or not doin like we're far gone
Another way that maybe we forgot or maybe we still need
And what if I'm not remembering
Cause I can feel it in a summer's breeze
And it keeps callin me

So I'm singing another verse?, I'll sing it again
And I'm playing, bells start ringin again
And I'm yelling hoping, I'll start thinking again
And chasing after your inborn concept
I catch a flick of it in the mirror
Cause I'm looking for you
And all I see is me but I know that's hardly true
The T.V. lies to me with green and blue
Turn it to black and still and still I can see you

Cause you can feel it in a summer's breeze
There's something in the trees
Some kind of long lost feeling
It kinda feels like there's something wrong
Something that we doin or not doin like it's far gone
Another way that maybe we forgot or maybe we still need
And what if I'm not remembering
Cause I can feel it in a summer's breeze
And it keeps callin me

I try to search inside myself to find the right and the wrong
But it's so complicated to know what to keep anymore
It's even harder to put into words to write in a song
And for some reason I can't move along
Cause karma happens, doesn't matter what bible I got
And I can feel it in the air whether I read it or not
So I'm continuing, searchin, watchin the road that I walk
It's on the tip of my tongue so I talk

Cause you can feel it in a summer's breeze
There's something in the trees
Some kind of long lost feeling
It kinda feels like there's something wrong
Something that we doin or not doin and we're far gone
Another way that maybe we forgot or maybe we still need
And what if I'm not remembering
Cause I can feel it in a summer's breeze
And it keeps callin me

I can remember in my mind
Way back before my time
A memory lived through my DNA line
And I can see it in design
That we could be just fine
Let history reveal the truths we need to find
But the memories are long gone
Forgot and choosen by the youths, so many years?
Bye bye Babylon so
So we sing it in this song
With hope to resurrect consciousness back through our daughters and our sons

Cause you can feel it in a summer's breeze
There's something in the trees
Some kind of long lost feeling
It kinda feels like there's something wrong
Something that we doin or not doin and we're far gone
Another way that maybe we forgot or maybe we still need
And what if I'm not remembering
Cause I can feel it in a summer's breeze
And it keeps callin me

I get a feeling that I had in me before I could speak
And when I could, I couldn't tell people how it felt to me
It's like there's something in my heart that let's me know that I'm free
But I don't ever know when that will be
That's if I name it at all
So if it even happens at all
Cause I'm related to a place I've never been to or saw
Until that day I'm just watchin, waitin, on this world that I walk
It's in the back of my mind all day long

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
