Wake up, wake up—the morning's coming on through
And the kettles on the stove are whistling too
They kinda sound like some impending doom
But when you light a fire under, I get worried too

So come on down to the bar late tonight
There'll be a boy there waiting for some earthly delight
Broken down, but claiming he's alright
That's just somewhere we've all been before

Wake up, wake up—it's the hardest thing to do
when no one's bathed in sunrise laying next to you
And if birds were pterodactyls, spiders were too
I'd love to stop this war, but there's nothing I can do

Broken fingers come from broken men
who once had their broken homes broken in
I broke a promise, I might do it again
It's just somewhere we've all been before
But maybe I don't wanna go no more
But that's probably not my call, I'm sure

Wake up, wake up—it's not like you have a choice
They didn't make volume dials to keep down the noise
And in the bar somewhere later tonight
I'll say all this again like it was my first time
