Song#: 20

Album
Name of Song: It takes a while to steal the world

They used to stop
What they could not control,
Before they stole
what made you whole.

They cannot work
And make new things
Instead they steal
and pull our strings.

Chorus
Wake up world,
Wake up in time,
To what’s going on
inside your own mind.
Wake up world,
Wake up in time,
To what’s going on
inside your mind.
_______

It takes a while
To steal the world,
To slide inside
those minds of Greatness.

We are not used
to hidden stealth,
That morph right in
and steal our wealth.

Chorus
Wake up world,
Wake up in time,
To what’s going on
inside your own mind.
Wake up world,
Wake up in time,
To what’s going on
inside your mind.

We’ve been asleep
For oh so long,
Too many things
that make us “wrong”.
List them out,
So many things,
Reactive urges
with all their strings.

Start to look
Inside your mind,
You never know
What you will find.

In your mind,
Is what you’ve done,
Splurge inside
until you’ve won.

Splurge inside
