Melissa Etheridge - A CALL TO ACTION

Melissa Etheridge just finished performing her song from "The Inconvenient Truth" which was MUCH more than a song about global warming. She covered all the bases.

She urged Americans to awaken to the constitutional, political, social and environmental crises confronting the nation today.

Have I been sleeping?
I’ve been so still
Afraid of crumbling
Have I been careless?
Dismissing all the distant rumblings
Take me where I am supposed to be
To comprehend the things that I can’t see
Cause I need to move

I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now

And as a child
I danced like it was 1999
My dreams were wild
The promise of this new world
Would be mine
Now I am throwing off the carelessness of youth
To listen to an inconvenient truth

That I need to move
I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up

I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now I am not an island
I am not alone
I am my intentions
Trapped here in this flesh and bone
Oh I need to move

I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up

I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now I want to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out

Oh, Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now
