too many people for too many things
can you wait up for me?

scatterbrain we hear the prophets
speaking on their own behalf
with their crooked smiles for a little while
on temporary sacred ground
to bruise the knees for those around
praying saying what you knew could be
was what you wouldn't see

how could the man in black and white
wait up to say his grace
on speaking terms again
speaking up falling down
on temporary sacred ground
to bruise the knees for those around
praying saying what you knew could be
was what you wouldn't see

spinning faster to slow down
you build your house on sacred ground
spinning faster to slow down
waiting for you
waiting for me

as if you didn't know
it doesn't seem a bit surprising
a little less for more
you walk in the sunlight's early rising
repeating once repeating twice
to fall and fall and fall again

the drink is slowing
the smoke is burning
the clock still ticking
the oceans flowing
the people looking
the rain still falling
the world's still spinning
faster to slow down

too many people for too many things
can you wait up for me
can you wait up for me

playing hide and seek again
try to catch me if you can
sit and laugh with you
at you it never ends
it never wins
on temporary sacred ground
to bruise the knees for those around
praying saying what you knew could be
was what you wouldn't see
strain and tear this game to play
spin and fall another day
