  • Wait for me if I don't show up
    Take from me this hypocrites cup
    Somewhere around the world
    Someone would love to have my first world problems

    Kill the moon and turn out the sun
    Lock your door and load your gun
    Free at last, ya, the time has come to chose
    Man makes god so god can make man
    Man makes the devil so that he can understand
    Why it is that everyday everything always turns out this way

    And you and me we were never here
    You and me we were not that clear
    You and me we died a long, long time ago
    Don't think, just come along
    I do believe that it won't be long
    Everything's open all night and all day anyway

    Build me a ship of wood
    And steal me a net and a fishing reel
    Sail me to the place
    Where I can find my brother sleeping sound

    Wait for me if I don't show up
    Take from me this hypocrites cup
    Kill the moon, turn out the sun
