Lyrics: Wake Me Up (When the War is Over)

(Additional lyrics by Kevin Bennett)

It’s true we’re living in troubled times, like it’s always been.
Advocate fear and hate, it’s a downright sin
Womanising, sermonising, demonising fools.
Tiny soundbite victories

It is useful to remember that the Internet is also an unwieldy and precarious beast and should be treated with extreme caution; please be careful and good luck.

Here are just a few of my personal favourites:
