WAKE UP ADPERV by Stele via Arcade Fire and David Bowie

Songwriters and musicians, co-write and record *Wake Up Adperv* with XOEarth Stele pq. It is a parody of *Wake Up*by Arcade Fire and covered by David Bowie.

Buying filled up
my heart with nothin’.
Toxins/pollution/acid rain sting but say don’t cry.
But Earth and I am older,
our hearts (both) smolder,
I can see the adverts lie.
Children, wake up.
Hold their mistake up
before profit turns the winter into dust.
If people don’t grow up,
business get bigger but Earth gets burned up.
[our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.]
We’re a million little consumer gods causin’ climate storms,
turnin’ land and sea to rust.

I guess extinction calls to us.

With the pixels (a) glowin’,
[The] ads show where I am never goin’
when the reaper’s salesman licks(kisses) my hand.
With the pixels a glowin’,
adperv show (me) where I’m never goin’
With the pixels a glowin’,
adperv show (me) who I’m never knowin’
With the pixels a glowin’,
advert show’s (me) what I’m never ownin’

I’m not buying their poison now!
I’m not buying their poison now!
We better not sell out now!
(We better) stop selling out now!
(We better) stop selling their now!

(We better) stop selling out now (you know)!
Stop selling out now (you know)(or go/blow)!

We better look out below!
