Wake Up
Mad Season Lyrics


Wake up young man
It's time to wake up
Your love affair has got to go
For ten long years
For ten long years
The leaves to rake up
Slow suicide's no way to go
Oh

Blue clouded gray
You're not a crack up
Dizzy and weakened by the haze
Movin' onward
So an infection not a phase
Yeah oh

The cracks and lines
From where you gave up
They make an easy man to read
Oh oh, oh oh
For all the times
You let them bleed you
For a little peace from God you plead
And beg
For a little peace from God you plead

Oh oh oh oh
Yeah oh
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah oh
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah oh

Wake up young man
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Oh yeah

Wake up young man
It's time to wake up
Your love affair has got to go, yeah
For ten long years
For ten long years
The leaves the rake up
Slow suicide's no way to go oh, oh oh
Slow suicide's no way to go

Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up

Being in a band can fuck your chemistry up if you're not prepared

Wake up young man, it's time to wake up
Your love affair has got to go, for ten long years
For ten long years, the leaves to rake up

For a little peace from God you plead, and beg

Slow suicide's no way to go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up

As a teenager, i had the stupidest idea couple of weeks ago. I thought "Maybe I'll do some cocaine in the future. Just in the parties, what the heck, i am sure i won't be addicted anyway."

At that point of time i only knew two song of Alice in Chains. Rooster and Would. But later on, when i did some research about the band and learned that Layne Staley was found dead in his home in 2002. (I was born in 2004)

When i heard this, i decided to research and go deep into his life. And the more i researched, the more i felt an absolute pain for him and it got me a little depressed since. And also the more i knew about his struggles due to drugs, the more i was terrified of drugs. Especially heroin, that thing ise pure evil. Now i realized that i was so fucking stupid to even think about doing drugs like that. The funny thing is that i always thought i was aware of many things about life (how stupid it is for a 16 year-old to think that, right?) but thinking about making drugs in the future made me realise that i am not some completed work.

And it is so fucking incredible that Layne Staley not only made me connected to his beatiful art but also he saved my life because of his life story. Who knows, if i wouldn't research about his life and didn't feel anything for him, i would have moved on with the same idea and end up as a drug addict in the future.

Music is so powerful that it could make you feel depressed for a person you never knew for over who knows how many days. And it can reach anyone, it can reach the whole other part of the world and save someone. I'm saying the whole other part of the world because i am from Turkey, which is in the Middle East.

And i also think that the effects of drugs like heroin, cocaine should be thought in schools and teachers should bring an ex addict to the school for kids to listen that person who has actually been through those evil things. I really hope that people won't fall for the pleasure of it. Best way to release dopamine is working out for sure. I'm off the topic here but benching 30 kg is what takes my stress, anger away. It's just releases all those negative feelings like magic.

Wake up young man, it's time to wake up
Your love affair has got to go
For 10 long years, for 10 long years
The leaves to rake up
Slow suicide's no way to go, oh

Dizzy and weakened by the haze
Moving onward
So an infection not a phase
Yeah, oh

The cracks and lines from where you gave up
They make an easy man to read, oh

For little peace from God you plead, and beg

@Ashley McMeakin I would simply say that the internet is no place to seek inspiration. It is so much easier to find things worse than my comment, than it is to come across my comment.
Your reply seems very judgemental, you dont know anything about me,, and have no idea what I was going through in my life at that moment. As well as having no idea how much that mushroom trip grounded me, and helped my soul. Stop passing judgements and free your mind and spirit.
I love you, and wish you nothing but the best.

20+ years later and nothing gives me goosebumps like this album. God I miss the 90s. And Layne and Kurt and Scott. Goddamit. Goddamit all.

Fan enthusiast

I miss them it too. But then the 90s was the stone that sharpened our spirit. God has blessed us. What we do with those blessings is the dilemma. Godspeed brother.

Wake up man
