  • Waiting for God to show up
    We're keeping our fingers crossed
    Can't seem to make sense of all of this madness
    Waiting for God to show up
    (On and on, on and on, on and on, on and on)

    Look what they did to her boy
    And nobody's blinking an eye
    She's choking on sadness with no hope for justice
    Just look what they did to her boy
    (On and on, on and on, on and on, on and on)

    Did she get lost in the rains?
    Or was there a lockdown at school?
    Maybe the ice cracked and swallowed the house up
    Or did they get caught in the fires?
    (On and on, on and on, on and on, on and on)

    All this talk of faith
    The power of all our prayers
    Meanwhile kids playing video games
    They fall, but they don't get up

    Who have we become?
    What do we do now?
    The waving of our flags
    And tears won't bring them back

    Waiting for God to show up
    We're keeping our fingers crossed
    Smiling at fireworks that light all our skies up
    While Black boys get shot in the back

    Were they caught riding their bike?
    Or guilty of walking alone?
    I can't seem to make sense of all of this madness
    Just waiting for God, keep waiting for God to show up
    (On and on, on and on, on and on, on and on)

    Oh God (it goes)
    Who art in heaven
    Who art in heaven, come
    Stand with us (it goes)
    May your will be done
    On Earth, as it is in heaven
    (On and on) Writer/s: Butch Vig, Duke Erikson, Shirley Manson, Steve Marker
