lyrics

WIDE AWAKE

Hey Mr. Hollywood superfly, do you know who you’re really employed by?
The stories you tell have got nothing to say
Another shoot-em-up messiah come to save the day

Hey Mr. Anchorman, give it a rest
Must you read all the crap that lands on your desk
Are you an agent for the bureau of lies, trying to pull the wool over our eyes

Chorus: We used to be sound asleep, but now we’re waking up
We used to be a flock of sheep, now we’re thinking for ourselves

Hey Mr. Politician bought and paid, we know the whole thing is just a big charade
Your military power won’t pass the test
Compared to the force beating in our chest

Hey Mr. Bankster, hero of the chosen few
This feast is for everyone not just for you
Hey Mr. Fatcat give us a break, must you eat the entire cake

Now that we’re no longer comatose, now that the fog is lifting
Can we avoid this overdose, now that the world is shifting

about

Jennis Toronto, Ontario

Jennis (Dennis Gaumond & Jen Gillmor) delivers more sound, variety and fun than one would think could fit into a single touring vehicle. The unique blend of cello and dobro is also augmented by unusual sounds, such as didgeridoo, custom-tuned harmonicas, flute, wah-guitar, jaw harp and wazinator. Their sound is bluesy, at times funky, jazzy or folky, with a hint of exotic ethnic influences. ... more
