lyrics

If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die, oh, there’s gonna a big change my oh my
If I wake before I die, if I wake before I die

I walked into a bar and I ordered a drink
They were watchin’ the news, I didn’t know what to think
Asked the man beside me, please explain about the news
He said, 'Son, in this world the bad guys win, the good guys lose'

If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die, oh, there’s gonna a big change my oh my
If I wake before I die, if I wake before I die

I met some people and they seemed real nice
The more that we talked the more they tried to entice me
to join in their causes, didn’t interest me at all
they said 'see you at the march,' I said 'see you at the mall'

If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die, oh, there’s gonna a big change my oh my
If I wake before I die, if I wake before I die

Now there are thieves in the alley, there are thieves in bed
There are thieves who are starving, some have been wellfed
There are thieves with guns and bright shiny boots,
The ones you really gotta watch are the ones in suits
They’re swimming in the black while the planet bleeds red
Soon it’ll all be gone just like the prophets said

If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die
If I wake before I die, oh, there’s gonna a big change my oh my
If I wake before I die, if I wake before I die
