What's this, what's this? How is it twenty to six?
God, give me just an hour, just another little hour...
There's nothing like the feeling of fatigued distress
And every day's a struggle to get up and get dressed
And every morning is just the same,
My sanity is shaken, my self worth has been taken away
It's no-one's fault, it's no-one's fault, it's just the way the world turns

I gotta steel myself and hang in there, I just gotta hang in there!

I've discovered the secret, so I'll let you all in
You can work like a slave, you can eat from a tin,
there are those who live on less
We're all rats at the races, we are tests in a tube
We are wallets and voters to the people who choose
But compared to some, we're blessed

And the days start to blur, 'till nothing seems real anymore

So wake up wake up wake up it's 6am!
It's time to get up and do it all again!

Well I gotta keep focused on the good times ahead
Because things will keep shifting 'till the day that we're dead, and it's strange
And everyone's leaving; everybody knows why
This'll be one more summer of a thousand goodbyes
And of change

I don't think I'll make the effort to love anymore...
'Cos I cannot watch just one more friend walk out the door

So wake up wake up wake up it's 6am!
It's time to get up and do it all again!
