Lyrics

Wasting Time

I'm just waiting for my grey skies to clear
The forecast says lucky stars are gonna fall around here
Don't want to reach for what I can't touch
Don't want to try and fail that much, oh yeah
Keep waiting it's so easy to do
No sense reaching if the stars are gonna come to you

I've waited all night for another false dawn
I just hope better days are gonna come along
Check my horoscope and cast those runes
Deal the cards, do the I Ching books, oh yeah
Any way to the future but your own
Anyone else to blame but number one

Some people are waiting for a sign from God
A Second Coming well some would wait for a third
The meek are gonna inherit the earth
But when it gets to them what's it gonna be worth, oh yeah
A world full of false prophets with nothing to say
A world full of dogs having their day

I know the future’s in my own hands
It's mapped in lines on my fingers and palms
My heart rules my head like stones in rings
I've set faith in all those things
My lifeline says I'm gonna live a long life
But something tells me I'm just wasting my time
But something tells me I'm just wasting my time
But something tells me I'm just wasting my time
