Wake Up Call Lyrics

by 88-keys

Feat. Colin Munroe

I had to take plan b
Out my program
Soon as I found out
That time waits for no man
'Cause time
Is a tedious tutor
I had to make immediate future look better
Like I'm getting a slow tan
And I brown nicer than brown rice
This not gonna sound nice
But you gotta make it
Part of your slogan
"Screw everybody"
Who said you can't get this
Treat 'em like Todd Bridges
And you're Gary Coleman
Like "What'chu talkin' 'bout Willis?"
You're still pissed?
'Cause my future is magnetic
I clutch it with steel fists
Apply it to your skin
Like make up y'all
It's 8 o'clock
And here's your "Wake Up Call"... Now let's go!
Colin Munroe:
Wake up & fight this is it
This is your call (Will it be)
Nothing or all (You gotta)
You gotta
Wake up & fight this is it
This is your call (Your "Wake Up Call")
If you don't wake up then you'll fall
88-Keys:
When I was younger I used to wonder
What made my belly roll
I ate a jelly roll
But I knew it wasn't hunger
It was the thunder
Built inside of me
I turned into a scavenger
And stepped to the challengers
They couldn't even
Step in my path
I'm defying the odds
I wouldn't get wet in a bath
That's what you call determination
My eyes set on the goal
Everything else
Faces early termination
And I don't give a damn
About contracts

I'll go toe-to-toe with my foe
That's my stance up in combat
You gotta stay focused
Get your cake up y'all
7 o'clock
And here's your "Wake Up Call" now let's go!
Colin Munroe:
Wake up & fight this is it
This is your call (Will it be)
Nothing or all (You gotta)
You gotta
Wake up & fight this is it
This is your call (Your "Wake Up Call")
If you don't wake up then you'll fall
88-Keys:
I hope you know
Since time is ticking
I'm gonna call you out
Like bock bock chicken
Or call you out your crib
Like a knock, knock joke
When you answer, "who's there?"
I'll be a lot less forgiving
You gotta be driven
Like car seats
Stay focused – Get your work done
Won't have to wait 'til the stars meet'
Don't base it off of
Luck or destiny
I'm Tony Robbins- Motivate your ass
Like celebrity
Diet
Recipes – Try it
Man I'll tell ya
You're a blimp if you're thinking of failure
There's not enough room
If you assume you're going to take up all
It's 6 o'clock
Your final "Wake Up Call"... Now let's go!
Colin Munroe:
Wake up & fight this is it
This is your call (Will it be)
Nothing or all (You gotta)
You gotta
Wake up & fight this is it
This is your call (Your "Wake Up Call")
If you don't wake up then you'll fall
If you don't wake up
Then you'll fall
Your "Wake Up Call"
Your "Wake Up Call"

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

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