"They're Coming for Us, Babe", the second track off of Wake Up Paradise's debut EP, "Love. Faith. Wealth. War." is an indie rock song at heart. With lyrics aimed to expose the ever-growing police state and the continued ruin of paradise (Earth), this is as good as protest songs get.


Everybody wants their voice to be heard.
Everybody wants the world to listen. Everybody thinks they know it all.
Everyone want to voice their opinion.

Because, if you could see.
You'd see it's right in front of you.
It's right in front of you.

But nobody wants to take that first step.
Nobody lets freedom reign.
We just need to stand together
If you're with me let me here you sing.

Take it back. Take it back.
We got one shot. Last chance to make it count.
They're tearing up the streets and they're taking down names
If you dare not speak, I better hear you pray.

We gotta take this town for everything they're worth.
And she said, oh they're coming for us, babe.

All we want to do is live our lives,
but we take them all for granted.
I just want to live in paradise.
Not get caught up in the ashes.

They say, you can't.
They say, you won't.

Tell me what it feels like to lose control.
Oh baby you've dropped the ball.
What were you thinking?….oh
