Just a mother and sons livin' under the gun
Bruises on their backs were just another
Sign of the push and the shove and the lack of the love
On the side of the tracks that they were brought up
Now they're speakin' it out through the silence and doubt
Try to figure it out but get caught up
In the here and the now and the where and the how
You know what it?s about when they say
Wake me when it?s over
Pick me up, I'm on the ground
Wake me when it?s over, now
she's just a girl on the run, hit the streets so undone
Mistreated under the sheets by her father
Keeps her heart cold and numb, thoughts she can't overcome
Still she looks for the one that could save her
Now she's workin' it out in the corner of town
Between 7th and south you will find her
With her head in the clouds and her back on the ground
You know what it?s about when she says
Wake me when it?s over
Pick me up, I'm on the ground
Wake me when it?s over
Show me where the light is found
Wake me when it?s over, now
Where are the fathers of the fatherless?
Now they're speakin' it out through the silence and doubt
Try to figure it out but get caught up
In the here and the now and the where and the how
You know, what it?s about when the say
Wake me when it?s over
Pick me up, I'm on the ground
Wake me when it?s over
Show me where the light is found
Wake me when it?s over
I swear I will not make a sound
Wake me when it?s over
Wake me when it?s over
Wake me when it?s over
Wake me, wake me, wake me, wake me
When it?s over
When it?s over
When it?s over
When it?s over
