lyrics

(Chorus intro)
You have to lose to learn to love, when everything crashes down, Pick yourself off the ground and turn it around now, You have to give your love away, give your heart space to learn, Give some yourself time to grow and anything’s possible

(Verse 1)
My generation is special performing spectacles
Writing these songs, righting my wrong correctional
Invested time, every minute is measurable,
Pleasant and kind, love is incredible
Your hate speech is unneeded, unwanted, and unacceptable
We leveled up, Invest in growing vegetables, confession
We are a collective of the source that everyone’s connected to
a new generation that’s breaking through

(Chorus)
You have to lose to learn to love, when everything crashes down
Pick yourself off the ground and turn it around now
This is the wake up century, you have to give your love, to give your love
This is the wake up century, you have to give your love, to give your love away and now we’re remembering, now we’re remembering

(mini bridge)
Wake up century, questioning authority
Channeling our destiny, opening up, now we’re remembering
opening up, now we’re remembering

(verse 2)
Strong move along, uprooting our feet
Confronting our ego, hear our spirit when we speak
Messages for the strong, won’t resonate if you’re weak
We’ve been given limitations, we're stretching out of our reach
Depression will not defeat, this movement inside of me
Lessons of the struggle of being a human being
Suffering drug addiction and watching homeys o.d.
Suicide is a commitment most of us won’t keep
We’re some artist with insomnia, working we don’t sleep
Educating ourselves to listen before we speak
The truth is, love is, something, they don’t teach
So it’s up to us to learn, continue spreading our piece

(2nd chorus extended)
You have to lose to learn to love, when everything crashes down
Pick yourself off the ground and turn it around now
You have to give your love away, give your heart space to learn
Give yourself time to grow and anything’s possible
This is the wake up century, and anythings possible
This is the wake up century, and anythings possible
This is the wake up century, and anythings possible
This is the wake up century, and anythings possible
And now we're remembering
This is the wake up century, When everything crashes down,
Wake up century, Pick yourself off the ground,
This the wake up century, turn it around now
Now we're remembering, now we're remembering

(bridge)
We need to break down just to wake us up
And as we wake up can we learn to love?
We need to break down just to wake us up
And as we wake up can we learn to love?
We need to break down just to wake us up
And as we wake up can we learn to love?
We need to break down just to wake us up
And as we wake up can we learn to love?

(Outro)
This is the wake up century, When everything crashes down,
Wake up century, Pick yourself off the ground,
This the wake up century, And turn it around now,
Wake up century, Turn it around now,
Wake up century, When everything crashes down
Now we're remembering, Pick yourself off the ground
Wake up century, And turn it around now
Now we're remembering, Now we're remembering
