lyrics

Wake up
There's so much to see
Don't hide
Don't hide

Creases
Undermine me
As I seek
To be seen

Laughter
Is my release
It keeps me
It keeps me

So wake up
There's no time to sleep
Don't hide
Don't hide

Wait and see
What complacency brings
Corruption
Among other things

They beg and plead
We forgive and forget
But there's no food to eat
Once the table's set

I can't seem to right this ship
It's sinking fast
It's sinking fast
I can't seem to stop this trip
It might be my last

You don't have to live life with your blinders on
You don't have to live life with your blinders on
Wake up, wake up, there's so much to see
Wake up, wake up, this is no way to be
You don't have to live life with your blinders on

You try and flee
But you're tethered in place
Spinning circles
I can see it in your face

You think you're free
But there's no escape
Smoking cigarettes
Behind the yellow tape and

I can't seem to right this ship
Were sinking fast, were sinking fast
I can't seem to stop this trip
It might be my last

You don't have to live life with your blinders on
You don't have to live life with your blinders on
Wake up, wake up, there's so much to see
Wake up, wake up, this is no way to be
You don't have to live life with your blinders on

You don't have to live life with your blinders on
You don't have to live life with your blinders on
Wake up, wake up, there's so much to see
Wake up, wake up, this is no way to be
You don't have to live life with your blinders on
