“Despierta” by Filthy Friends

#MoralMonday Where do you pray to see justice and peace done today?

“Despierta”

Despierta, Senador
The time is nearly here
The gold watch strapped around your wrist
Must have stopped some time ago
The day is fading quickly and the hour is nearly here
The whitest chalk upon this land is about to disappearHolding onto the past won’t make it repeat 
It’s time to get up
I think you’re in my seat
Lay down your pockets
Lay down in your finest sheets
I will roll you gently
And the kiss will be sweet
Your time is over
Your power’s peaked
Adios, senador
I have come to get the keysI waited and I watched and I lived my life in peace
You ruled, you made decisions without thinking of our needs
You and all your friends feasted while we fought to make ends meet
Now the country’s changing, see the difference on every streetHolding onto the past won’t make it repeat 
It’s time to get up
I think you’re in my seat
Lay down your pockets
Lay down in your finest sheets
I will roll you gently
And the kiss will be sweet
Your time is over
Your power’s peaked
Adios, senador
I have come to get the keysHolding onto the past won’t make it repeat 
It’s time to get up
I think you’re in my seat
Lay down your pockets
Lay down in your finest sheets
I will roll you gently
And the kiss will be sweet
Your time is over
Your power’s peaked
Adios, senador
I have come to get the keysLay down your pockets
Lay down in your finest sheets
I will roll you gently
And the kiss will be sweet
Your time is over
Your power’s peaked
Adios, senador
‘Cause I have come to get the keys
