Wake Up - Rage Against the Machine

Lyrics:- 'Cause what you reap is what you sow' - Commerford, de la Rocha, Morello & Wilk

Song Choice:- I can't believe this track came out in 1992 and it's the sheer volume and noise within the track that really fires me up every time I hear it. Originally written as a social comment about the racism within the American government and the counter-intelligence programs of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, it's an angry 6.02 minutes. The above line is a biblical reference (Galatians 6:7) that’s very much part of my own philosophy nowadays and I don't think anyone could ever sleep through this one...


WAKE UP! - as it's Monday and the start of a new week where anything might happen.

WAKE UP! - as you are behind the wheel steering your own direction.

WAKE UP! - and do what you've said you are going to do for days, months, years.

WAKE UP! into having to invest time, energy and determination to get to your goal as I believe a lot of folk reckon success can be bought and not earned.


I woke up years' ago - are you still sleeping?
