about

I want to put a stop to the ignorance that is revealed when we shop at stores that continually hurt people. Real people. When I found out the extent to which this happens. My heart broke into pieces, and this song is about putting their lives back together. Even if in just a small way.

lyrics

Wake up we are not in the dark ages we don't put people in cages doesn’t matter what their age is or their race is
Step up, become who you want to be show the world there's still love in deed and even corporations can bleed

Every child in need is a tragedy but love love sees things differently
But we we've seen an economy out of the suffering, and the hurt and the broken
"Mommy when will daddy be home?" I don't know son

Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for Christ's sake
Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for His sake

Pennies and calculations, everyone has a destination, except for those who can't move
But we need more statistics to prove that the world is hurting, and bleeding, and broken
"Mommy when will daddy be home?" I don't know son, we don't know son

Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for Christ's sake
Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for His sake

Wake up wally world, wake up Mickey's girl
Wake up and make up for the time that we've lost
Wake up CEOs, wake up NGOs 
Wake up and make up for the time that we've cost
Wake up middle class, wake up lazy lass
Wake up and make up for the time that we've lost

Wake up we are not in the dark ages we don't put people in cages doesn’t matter what their age is or their race is
Step up, become who you want to be show the world there's still love in deed and even corporations can bleed

Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for Christ's sake
Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for His sake
