Waiting For the Day
(T. Downing/S. Downing)

well I face the morning with the
world on my mind
and I turn on the TV
only to find
that i have no value, reduced to a
talking head
and i ain't got no existence
just might as well be dead

well maybe this is all just a dream
and maybe this means nothing to me
and maybe someday I'll find the truth
and maybe it's just that we're all screwed

waiting for the day to come
waiting for the day
waiting for the day to come
any time now...
any way...

well I'm not as stupid as you
say i look
and i can't see reality thru the
haze & smoke
and i look toward my future
away from my past
and the street-prophet says that
Armageddon's coming fast

well the glowing angels
they gather in my room
and all the saints & all the sinners
warn me of impending doom
and I reach toward the table
and turn on the light
and I blink my eyes and tell myself
it's gonna be a long night
