The Lyrics

I came up with this sing in literally 15 minutes. You don't care, do you? Just thought I'd post that...
Lost my shades. Tryin' to act casual.
Can't stop, lookin' for that d*** a**hole.
Changing my shades, isn't always that easy, now.
I'll go, to wherever to find those things.

Isn't it queer? How things disappear again.
Hidden away, that was their policy.

I'm ready to leave. They've pushed me too far, now.
You will sure see:
It's all a ploy,
The governments now in my mind.
C-C-Coverin' it up.
L-L-Lookin' for that warning sign.

It was a lie, there was a formula.
Saying goodbye, we live or we die, okay?

Living a lie, explains my life, how?
Playing along, it has been much too long.

I'm still waiting,
I'm still playing.
I'm still waiting,
I'm still saying.
And I'm still waiting,Still debating.
I'm still saying,
I'm still hating.

If we try, we can see what's going on.
If we spy, we will get narked upon.
We are blind, to what's going on right now.
So please, than, listen to my tale I tell.
The government lies, about a growing number of
Things.Doing what's right,
Has now become a mystery.

Feeling rejoice, is no longer a happy thing.
Feeling remorse, is now a quite average thing.

Government lies, citizens cry.
Government hates, people faint.
Everything is now a comic book. The nation is hanging by a hook.
They never do what you want them to,
they just take it and twist it around.
No one's getting the best of them,
This government better come to an end.

Still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
Still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting...
