I Woke Up

I woke up early this morning feeling that good shine on my bed
The sun was shining and you were on my mind
I woke up early this morning feeling that good shine on my bed
The sun was shining and you were on my mind…
(I hit ‘em hard, hit … hit ‘em hard)

I woke up early confused and in a daze
Comatose like I’ve been asleep for days
Open my mouth like a lion from a cage
I let it loose now let the world feel my rage
My life story is like a book so turn the page
Through all the faded pictures that we took in 1st grade
Nothing is for sure but check the promises we made
Whoever would have guessed I’ll be on tour front stage
Screaming for more but they forgot what I just gave
Falling on my knees like I was begging to get saved
Pour out my gut I never felt so brave
Never felt so hot these words are deeper than a cave
Sleep walking like I’m lost I’m in a maze
But I’m so far from lost I’m just going through a phase
Is like a dream that we interpret in different ways
Invisible tears in my eyes the early morning haze
Good morning…

[Chorus x2]
I woke up early this morning feeling that good shine on my bed
(Up early in the morning)
The sun was shining and you were on my mind
(I hit ‘em hard, hit … hit ‘em hard)
I woke up…

Feeling like the world is my possession
Woke up lost everything damn another lesson
Is God talking or is it just part of the recession
Regardless of the questions I’m thankful for every blessing
I’m almost there tell the haters stop guessing
Keep talking no doubt they put pressure I keep pressing
This isn’t music these are soul searching confessions
Go ahead and close your eyes feel the spiritual connection
Try to swallow a Smith & Wesson
Kirk O’bain I feel the pain in my expression
I feel the rain, I feel the storm I feel aggression
I can’t help but feel the fact these lives are prophesized and destined
I loose weight sometimes but I aint stressing
Falling off the tight rope but damn look how they catch him
I’m the reflection of those who overcame oppression
Like Vietnam that’s why my voice is like a weapon
Good morning …

[Chorus]

Ready to spread my wings
Let go of yesterday coz right now means everything
Cherish the future no one knows what it will bring
Coz soon after the storm comes the calm before the spring
Tomorrow is not promised it’s only what you bring
I know reality bites so watch out for the sting
Who’s now a slave can soon rise to be a king
So wake up while you still can it’s bigger than a dream
Who’s now a slave can soon rise to be a king
Wake up while you still can it’s bigger than just a dream
Life is a lesson it moves in circles like a ring
Watch ‘em go back & forth like a pendulum when it swings
This sounds like gospel like a choir when it sings
Sing louder hear my voice see exactly what I mean
Seek the truth don’t get blinded by the bling
Young worlds open your eyes coz nothing is ever as it seems
Good morning…

Up early in the morning
I hit ‘em hard hit … hit ‘em hard
Up early in the morning
I hit ‘em hard hit … hit ‘em hard (x2)

[Chorus x2]
