Wake Up  Joss Stone

[F#m]Yo, yup
[F#m]Thanks for stoppin' in
This ain't no[Bm] pop, no Mary Poppins , not a synonym
Ah Jr. Go[A]ng and Joss Stone the modern day Janis Joplin
[C#9] Come to tell you what is happenin'
If you've [F#m]been tuning in
I'm assuming that you're [Bm]unsatisfied unless
you don't know the root of the music
From the begin[A]ning
In this modern day [C#9]test tube factory that we're livin' in
[Verse 1] 
[C#m]What is this nonsense I can't hear through?
This combination of money and fools
[Bm]It's abominable
[C#m]Remember the stage where the flower child rules
and music was true so the people could choose
the[Bm]n the suits took control
Promote a new low
[C#m]My life is a soundtrack to a beautiful [Bm]movement
[C#m]Composed to get closer to a revoluti[Bm]on
What are you doing?
[F#m]Wake up
Tell me what is this non[Bm]sense
Why can't we be co[A]nscious?
Of what we're feeding ou[C#]r people
[F#m]Wake up
Tell me what is this n[Bm]onsense
You killed th[A]e conscious
With your deliber[C#]ate evil
[Verse 2] 
[C#m]What is this sh*t now we're forced to sit?
The greenery gone and our soul got split
[Bm]It's incredulous
How your lyrics got prejudice
[C#m]Cast your mind back to the soul out flick
When a couple of strings and a mic was it
[Bm]It's a fashion-less show
[C#m](First they take your mind)
Ambiguous and subliminal
What does singing have to do wi[Bm]th my abdominals?
Better read the fine print in your peripherals
[C#m](Then they take your soul)
Him and me lawyer come pen pals, s[Bm]uddenly I hear
funny signals
What a sneaky set of individuals
[C#m](And just before you know)
You can't see no residuals
And those who say t[Bm]hey have your back
you take it out a straight attack
and sell out for decimals
[C#m](The whole of you is owned by
Somebody else, your screamin' for help
So sha[Bm]ke up yourself, the call is comin' through)
Some truth from me to you
[F#m] What's thi[Bm]s nonsense
Can't we be con[A]scious?
Of what we're feedin[C#]g our, what we're feeding our
[F#m] What's this no[Bm]nsense
Can't we be cons[A]cious?
Can't we be[C#], can't we be?
[F#m]Now wake up, [Bm]wake up
All my people now wa[A]ke up
Wake up for me[C#], wake up for me people
[F#m]Wake up, [Bm]wake up
Wake up, w[A]ake up
You got to be co[C#]nscious
