Traffic Jam: Wake Up Call

Nobody likes to be stuck
Everybody eager to move forward
But when we only stirring the mud
It is time for us to start wake up

Nobody happy to be stopped
Everybody chase the fast track
But when all the movements collide
It is time for us to start wake up

We are running out
We are running hard
And we left our sense
In trash wreck

No ethic
No respect
Only selfish need
Only egoistic pride

Nobody willing to give a heart
Everybody ready to strike
But when it only makes us lost
It is time for us to start wake up

Nobody fears to get caught
Everybody always sneaks the way out
But when fate hard to forget
It is time for us to start wake up

We are running wild
We are running wide
And we hanged our life
In bloody road

Lack patience
Lack empathy
Only ignorance
Only blindness
