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!! E-mail me with any questions, comments or changes. I hope you enjoy the tab!
