Wake Me UP lyrics

Got this fight ?? Jesus behind
I got this hollow that I'm stuck with another man's child
??
The dude is mad, ?? knew that we'd survive
And he wasn't surprised to see us
So he greeted us with pause
And they asked for ammunition
Ask for contrition in small arms
WAKE ME UP, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
With a slap or a kiss
WAKE ME UP, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
There must be something better than this
I got this magic mirror ??
I got the AC turned on the TV so we won't blow up and die
I never figured ??
In the strange land of my muse
And they wracked us in my likeness
Our love and friends obviously see, see
I never lied to my hand I trust
A little bird comes to me
And I wish I had a small ?? found myself in the middle
Stepping on all the finger that were stretching through the bars
Whiling, it goes down the corridor
WAKE ME UP, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
With a slap or a kiss
WAKE ME UP, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
There must be something better than this
I got that scared decorated ??
?? along with colored thread of vine
They drag their boots, their heavy heart
Along the road to Palestine
Someone end that muttering in endless pieces
?? are slaughtering, each trap in blood still freezes
My false attempts to vengeance met them with no resistance
?? from my home, it really was no distance
WAKE ME UP, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
With a slap or a kiss
WAKE ME UP, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
There must be something better than this
And I play a kind of big shot, life goes on
??
And through the pit of sadness where the retched lodge
We buried all the ashes where my spirit remains
Where my spirit remains
Where my spirit remains
WAKE ME UP, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
There must be something better than this
There must be something better than this
There must be something better than this
There must be something better than this
There must be something better than this
