Lyrics:
(Verse):
I read the papers and I know which way you're going.
I watch the T.V. and it shows how little you're knowing.
I call you up when you're around but you don't hear me.
You hear the words but still don't hear, you don't even know me.

(Chorus):
Wake up, this ain't no vacation, she cries, for my reputation, hatred has 
never looked that good on you.
I know, she's in ovulation, can't see, the real destination, hatred has 
never looked that good on you.

(Verse):
Why sit around while you look down and dance with junkies?
Makes you look weak, makes you look pale, makes you fall down, makes you 
look, 

(Bridge):
You're raised and you can't see hate on the inside.
Wake up.  Your ignorance is free, hate on the outside.

(Spoken):
Keep your arms and hands inside the car at all times.
Time to shave your head and put your Doc Marten boots on!!
