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

Stumbled onto Mad Season after going on a Nutshell binge, about two months ago. How did I miss this????? I was lost; i guess.

This is truly a masterpiece. I am now one of them. Could of used this so many times in the past. Such soothingly sad comfort.

It’s the self prophecy and that feeling in Laynes voice that mesmerizes like a dream or a stupor. And that guitar solo; it just picks you up and blows you away from everything.

Amazing band.

But man; this stuff must of saved many many lives .

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

[Verse 2]
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

[Break]

[Verse 3]
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

The McCready/Staley combo is pure magic.

So much soul.

Same with Cornell and McCready in ToTD. Mike McCready is a bad ass and plays with so much soul.

He made both projects what they are.

Layne, you are and will always be a tortured but beautiful soul my friend. This cut gives me goosebumps

I found two Mad Season CDs in a bin at Goodwill. I bought them both and took them to a record store and donated them so that people looking for music would find them. This music deserves to live on.
