lyrics

Rip these pages off the wall as they keep on piling
Living through countdowns and waiting for a glimpse of something real.
It’s been a long way to that little moment that makes everything else bearable.
You’d drive all through the night to see it coming.

I’d just sleep these days away
And finally get straight to the point
I’ve been wishing and waiting for a spark to reignite.
Please tell me I’m not going nowhere fast.
The waiting keeps on getting way too long.

Another alarm clock, another senseless scheme: making the bridges to where you don’t want to be. I’m writing the plot of a huge soap that ends right when it begins.
This waiting room is taking all the best of my intentions
When will these words stop sitting on a shelf.

We’d drive all through our lives to see it coming

Rip these pages off the wall, these days are crawling
Rip these pages off the wall, and don’t start rotting

I’d just sleep these days away
And finally get straight to the point
I’ve been wishing and waiting for a spark to reignite.
Please tell me I’m not going nowhere fast
The waiting keeps on getting way too long.

I want to set it straight, until it fades away.
The walls are closing in, leaving me empty.
I need to see this through, no matter how it ends.
I’m off to something new, until then I’ll sleep these days away.
