Lament to Apathy

by: Marcy Rosenbaum & Rose Madrone


Wake up, wake up Little Maggie,
why do you sleep so sound?
The last time you really woke up,
were you shocked at what you found?
Are you hiding from the violence?
Are you frozen in your fear?
Have they stunned you into silence?
Is the way no longer clear?

You used to fight for justice,
and speak out for the truth
But now we action’s needed,
you seem to stand aloof.
Are you waiting for a beacon?
Someone else to give the call?
It’s gonna take everyone of us,
to tear down this big wall.

Wake up, wake up Little Maggie,
each voice has strength and might.
If you can see the shadow,
you can also see the light.
So come and join the chorus,
sing out with inner pride.
In the task that lies before us,
every voice can turn the tide.

Stop waiting 'til somebody opens the door,
we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
Stop waiting 'til somebody opens the door,
we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
