We’re planting seeds for new communities
It’s time to wake up.
To be the change in the world we want to see
It’s time to open up
Redefine society
No don’t give up

We’re planting seeds for new communities
Please Wake up
Wake up – open your eyes!
Wake up – please realize!

Wake up – you are skillful and wise!
Wake up
Wake up – open your eyes!
Wake up – please realize!
Wake up – you are skillful and wise!
Wake up

She dreamed bigger, she dreamed brighter,
she had the energy of wholeness to guide her
and when she stopped to look inside her, she
listened to her inner voice and said
“I can clearly see my choice to live in
this new way to take time each day to meditate
and to pray
It’s a new day and there is so much more that
I need to say
So I’ll keep walking on the Earth in this
sacred way”

We’re planting seeds for new communities
It’s time to wake up.
To be the change in the world we want to see
It’s time to open up

Redefine society
No don’t give up
We’re planting seeds for new communities
Please Wake up

Wake up – open your eyes!
Wake up – please realize!
Wake up – you are skillful and wise!
Wake up
Wake up – open your eyes!
Wake up – watch the new sunrise
Wake up – you are beautiful and wise!
Wake up – Wake up

Walking on the path, he could hear his heart whisper
Keep your spirit growing bigger
Keep flowing in this river
Believe in yourself, let your heart be your
guide
You could use your suffering to grow your
heart wide

There is more wonder in the world than you
can see now
Stay true to your path, you don’t have to
see how
Be compassionate and kind to your body and
your mind
Practice patience
It takes effort and time
one day at a time
one day at a time

We’re planting seeds for new communities
It’s time to wake up.
To be the change in the world we want to see
It’s time to open up
Redefine society
No don’t give up
We’re planting seeds for new communities
Please Wake up
Wake up – open your eyes!
Wake up – please realize!
Wake up – you are skillful and wise!
Wake up
Wake up – open your eyes!
Wake up –There is a new sunrise!
Wake up – you are beautiful and wise!
Wake up
Please wake up

Please wake up
let the music take you let the music wake you
We are coming together from all ten directions
We have a deep affection for the truth
We are the youth of all ages
More than just Facebook pages
We are living breathing realities
We are new LOVING! COMPASSIONATE!
INCLUSIVE! SUSTAINABLE!
COMMUNITIES!

We’re planting seeds for new communities
It’s time to wake up.
To be the change in the world we want to see
It’s time to open up

Please Wake up
Wake up – open your eyes!
Wake up – please realize!
