​Wake Up

This song is by Josh Woodward and appears on the album Here Today (2004).

Mr. O'Leary is combing his hair
And he's swirling it into a knot
The mirror is laughing at Mr. O'Leary
'Cause it knows he's someone he's not
Walking away from that painted reflection
To do something else he forgot

And now he's walking around with that stupid expression
While his memory asks him, well, what was the question?
And follows the blind while he's trying to find
All the things he's not sure that he missed

Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We sleep when we're walking, we never stop talking
Wake up, wake up, wake up

Mrs. Jones stands at the station
She waits for a train that don't run anymore
She's paid up her fare for a ticket to nowhere
And thinks that she's been there before
Broken dreams weigh on her mind like the water
That's spilling the sand on the shore

And she's clicking her heels and she's looking for Toto
While she stands with her dress dragging in the grey snow
And she wants what she doesn't have, has what she doesn't want
And she wants the world to know it

Johnny McGee's making love to TV
And his stamina's really impressive
It's always turned on, all night until dawn
And plays reruns when he gets aggressive
Johnny's afraid that he'll worry about
All the problems that he doesn't have

Because his life is so boring and he's always snoring
While earth is revolving and it's not worth exploring
And the faces on TV all say who he should be
But nobody knows who he is
