Now That We’re Awake

(See below for notes on the music.)

We are the hope for the future
We are the young of today
We are the children of dreamers
Whose dreams have slipped away

We are the new mapmakers
Destiny rests in our hands
Now is our moment in history
To take a stand

[Chorus]

Occupy Wall Street
Occupy D.C.
Today we are rising
To reclaim our dreams

If we stand together
We’ll shake off our chains
The 1% is scrambling
Now that we’re awake

[Verse]

We are the bridge to tomorrow
We are the link with the past
We are the new Founding Fathers (and mothers)
We’ll make our own path

We are the new generation
Can you guess what we feel?
We’ve got the passion and numbers
To make it real … make it real, baby

[Chorus]

Occupy Wall Street
Occupy D.C.
Today we are rising
To make history

If we stand together
We can shake off our chains
The 1% is scrambling
Now that we’re awake

[Bridge]

Occupy Boston Harbor
And the Federal Reserve
Occupy EVERYWHERE
Until the 99% percent is heard

People are awakening
All around the globe
The future is calling
Time to be bold

[Chorus]

Occupy Wall Street
Occupy D.C.
Today we are rising
To make history

If we stand together
We can shake off our chains
The 1% is scrambling
Now that we’re awake

The music is a cross between Joe Cocker’s Feeling Alright and the rock feel of the Black Crowes.

    This song is a typical government sponsored psy-op. Besides that, Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue.
