Don't Wait

Album: The Peace And The Panic (2017)
  • Disrupted they keep dividing
    The government is lying
    I'm not going to be a Pharisee of this society
    Turn off your TV station
    That's not real information
    Trying to define the human mind
    It's like puppetry
    And they've got you by your strings
    Playing God for money
    A sorry sad charade
    You can see right through it

    Don't wait for anyone
    Say it for you
    Say it for yourself
    What if God was the beggar in disguise?
    Would it make any difference?
    Would you open your eyes?
    Whoa oh, whoa oh

    Suspend your disbelief
    Are you paying close attention?
    If you blink then you might miss their tricks and their deception
    Destruct and disobey their laws
    They say cause all the world is dark
    And if you choose to read the news
    Then you must question everything
    And they've got you on your knees
    They've got your milk and honey
    And then we put them on the parade
    And celebrate what's coming

    Don't wait for anyone
    Say it for you
    Say it for yourself
    What if God was the beggar in disguise?
    Would it make any difference?
    Would you open your eyes?
    Whoa oh, whoa oh

    No path
    No grave
    No justice
    No peace
    Dig deep, believe
    The truth will set you free

    No path
    No grave
    No justice
    No peace
    Dig deep and see
    The government is lying

    Don't wait Don't wait for anyone For anyone
    Say it for you
    Say it for yourself
    Yeah what if God was the beggar in disguise?
    Would it make any difference?
    Would you open your eyes?

    No path
    No grave
    No justice
    No peace
    Dig deep, believe
    The truth will set you free
    No path
    No grave
    No justice
    No peace
    Would it make any difference?
    Would you open your eyes?
