about

'Wake Up Call' is an introspective view of our place in society, illustrated through a frantic struggle to escape the monotony of day-to-day life. Born from isolation, in our ever-changing world, 'Wake Up Call' breaks free and will have you dancing like it's 2019.

lyrics

Just because you see it,
doesn't mean you should believe it
and just because you feel it,
doesn't mean that it's really there.
Wish somebody told me that when I was young.
Think of all the things I coulda gone and said and done
and the more I learn as I get old,
the more I question what I'm told.
I drink two litres of water everyday,
take a pill and the problems will all go away.
Stuck inside the box I made.
I made it for myself.
You can wait for somebody to save you,
but you gotta save yourself.

If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?
If this is not a cure for all the problems that we've caused,
what's it all for?

If there were more people on the screen,
that looked like me,
maybe the bully in the mirror would finally retreat.
Wouldn't have to hide from everyone.
Would I be so ashamed of the damage I've done
and the more I learn as I get old,
the more I question what I'm told.
There's not another Heaven
where the beautiful people go.

If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?
If this is not a cure for all the problems that we've caused.
If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?
If this is not a cure for all the problems that we've caused,
what is it for?

If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?
If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?

Just because you feel it,
doesn't mean you should believe it
and just because you see it,
doesn't mean that it's really there.
Wish somebody told me that when I was young.
Think of all the things I could have gone and said and done,
and the more I learn as I get old,
the more I question what I'm told.
There's not another Heaven,
where the beautiful people go.

If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?
If this is not a cure for all the problems that we've caused.
If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?
If this is not a cure for all the problems that we've caused,
what is it for?

If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?
If this is not a Wake Up Call,
then what's it all for?

If this is not a Wake Up Call
