Lyrics: I figured it out today,
While all the sheep are sleeping
The shepherd is keeping wolves away;
We all have a role to play.
But make no mistake,
It's yours to take.
Wake up
Stand up and show em what you’re made of.
Wake up
Stand up and show em what you’re made of.
Are you afraid to dream
Because of what the world has done to you

Are you afraid to walk out your front door

Hey dreamer, what are you waiting for

Hey dreamer, what are you waiting for

Hey dreamer, what are you waiting for

Hey dreamer, (Keep treading water)
What are you waiting for
(But I can’t swim forever.)
Who are you

What have you done to yourself

Take a good hard look in the mirror.
If you find that you don’t like what you see,
Remember who you used to
Remember who you used to be.
Wake up,
Stand up and show em what you’re made of.
When the day comes,
You’ll find there’s nothing you’re afraid of.
Wake up,
Stand up and show em what you’re made of.
When the day comes,
You’ll find there’s nothing you’re afraid of.

About the Artist
Take Cover Take Cover

Take Cover formed in the fall of 2007 and hit the ground running. After a few months of writing, they entered the studio in the spring to record with their good friend and producer Jordan Schmidt (All Time Low, Motion City Soundtrack). Their debut self-titled EP was released that September and was followed by a first tour with Minnesota natives Sing It Loud (Epitaph Records) and You, Me and Everyone We Know (Doghouse Records). The boys were honored to begin their journey as a band with such an esteemed touring package and didn't let the momentum stop there. After touring on their self-titled EP that following winter and spring of 2009, they began the writing process for their sophomore EP "The Last Word." (Also produced by Jordan Schmidt). Following a sold out hometown release show for this EP, Take Cover hit the road once more in the summer and fall of 2009 with Quietdrive (formerly Sony Records) and The Higher (Epitaph Records). Over the winter of 2009, Take Cover began putting together an acoustic EP titled "Waiting in the Moment", consisting of both old and new songs. This online release, debuting in January of 2010, gave the fans a unique look into the versatility of the band, all the while giving the band more time to write new full band songs during the winter. Take Cover released their debut full length, "The Dreamer and The Realist" (produced by Jordan Schmidt) in June of 2011, and hit the road with pop giants Every Avenue and Hit the Lights. Take Cover has also shared the stage with such acts as The Fold, William Beckett (The Academy Is), Danny Stevens (The Audition), Jamestown Story, Reel Big Fish and The Graduate. Take Cover parted ways in April 2012 to a sold out crowd and have since started new projects.
