about

My tribute to the Alpha Course (www.alpha.org) featuring real life testimony from real church people. In hindsight I probably forgot to tell them what I was interviewing them for and to this day still hope they don't mind. Thanks though, guys, this song wouldn't have worked without you.

lyrics

Good morning, wake up, go to school
Wear your blazer as is the rule
Watch the teacher teach you sums
Slowly wake until break time comes

A prison life, feudal system like
Must find a smaller boy to strike
But he'll just go and tell on you
Teachers don't know what you go through

Is there more to life than this?
So many classes you try to miss
Same old things on same old days
Fear mixed with a quiet malaise

Good morning, wake up, go to work
Another downtrodden office clerk
Keep your head down, get it done
Take a cigarette for a glimpse of sun

Lunch time quickly comes and goes
Deep in spreadsheets, time moves slow
Colleagues pipe up, nothing new
Just "Did you get that thing I sent you?"

Is there more to life than this?
Sales targets and client lists
Same old things on same old days
Boredom mixed with a quiet malaise

There's more in store for you

Stop dreaming about what life can bring
Set your thinking on higher things
Find something worth living for
There's no reason not to explore

Is there more to life than this?
Is there more to life than this?
Is there more to life than this?
Is there more to life than this?
