"Michael" as written by and David (arr.) Fisher....
I've been waiting patiently for this day to arrive and
I have spoken not a single word,
Now hand to hand my voice shall be heard

No Michael
Not this time,
I've been waiting for oh so long, oh so long

I've accepted silently this name I've been given and
I have heard it pass the lips of everyone,
Now if you will inquire, ask of your Father
And he may tell you of his brightest Son

No Michael
Not this time,
I've been waiting for oh so long

No Michael,
Not this time,
I've been growing oh so strong

Now in true glory
I'll rise again, ahh

I've been waiting patiently for this day and this time
I shall not be alone,
Not this time, not this time,
Not this time, not this time

    General Commentto me it is about someone who has kept quiet and isolated about something for a while and someone (michael) is asking them just to stay quiet but this person wants to rise up because he has been taking everything in and remained non-responsive for so long.

    that's just stating the obvious though.
    this is my favorite son of sam song.

    General CommentI believe It's about the angel michael from the bible and how he finaly meets michael and he worships him. So he's been trying to become similar to him, but michael could care less and so the guy won't allowed this to happen.

    General CommentI think this songs a homage to their gothic/horror rock roots. It's about Michael Myers (the white masked killler from "Halloween").

    ...In the Halloween trilogy Michael Myers always waited silently all year untill one day (Halloween) to rise to his glory and basically assasinate teenagers.
