At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Valerius and Maximinus (or, less frequently, year 1064 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 311 for this year has been used si… more »

Wake your mind up, clear your eyes up
Move and rise up before your times up
 Clock is ticking, your caught slippin'
Stop to realize, look and listen 

Well I guess that's life
When you see a dark road up the way
And I guess that's life
When you gotta roll through anyway
Now don't scream, don't fight 
Fear never ever made it go away
Same ghost town as yesterday 
Made you feel like love was miles away

Wake your mind up, clear your eyes up
Move and rise up before your times up
 Clock is ticking, your caught slippin'
Stop to realize, look and listen 

Now those sleepless nights  Thoughts just cloud up my brain  Feeling helpless, repeating the same
Old memories of pain and I wish it would rain, yo
 Gimmie starlit skies for dreamland 
I know it's really smaller than it seems but when
The pressure gets under my skin
I just want to get out and scream in the wind, yo

The world we're livin in is complicated 
The streets that we walk on are dark and jaded 
A wandering soul that's filled with hatred 
In it is poison, the youth is tainted  Social engineering keeps us separated  Media control is highly overrated
 Ignorance is bliss to those uneducated
 Listen to the message 'cause it's time we faced it

Wake your mind up, clear your eyes up
Move and rise up before your times up
 Clock is ticking, your caught slippin'
Stop to realize, look and listen 

I'm controller of my destination  Gotta change my mind to help me break away
The sun creeps over the hillside to shed this light 
No man could take away
And I guess that's life
You see a new side from the norm
A new direction and meaning to the form
And the calm in the eye of a storm, yo

Show me a desert that can never be drenched 
I'll show you a thirst that can never be quenched  Temptation chronicles, the story of my life
Been spent on a dose of balancing strife
 Inspiration it comes and goes
You can bet when it hits, I'm on the phone  Singing to my voice mail trying to get it down
In a sensation of shape shifting sound 
You're telling fables to cover up your foibles 
From overindulgence on things you find enjoyable  Designed to take my mind away from the truth 
Try to make me out to play the sleuth 
They want you to think someone's watching you
So they can make up a set of rules for you
I'm just trying to find a path that I can stomach 
Just trying to make some sense out from it, unh
Don't stop, don't stop what you got
Don't stop til you find the sweet spot

Wake your mind up, clear your eyes up
Move and rise up before your times up
 Clock is ticking, your caught slippin'
Stop to realize, look and listen
