From the fifth floor, I schedule my meeting with the moon,
Stress, let it go, so it don't completely consume.
When the vegetables fight back, and the grass starts to sting,
I yell up to Heaven to get me the hell out of this dream.
I fell out of my stream of self-consciousness,
and I've got welts on my mind to signify all my
accomplishments.
No matter whose math you use to count to ten,
progress will never rest in the hand that has no head.
Bought my brain a cane, asked it to be my pimp
You know, to make sure I don't stuck up in my f**k-ups.
A little over anxious I was to bust nuts,
and find the answers making love, out of a canvas full of
touch-ups.
I dipped my brush into the what, I've wept for,
and wonder out loud as I can, how long I've slept for.
I should rob a pet store, let the dogs wild,
I should close all the schools just to make the kids smile.
Seize the limit, let the sky be the moment,
but the key to the ignition I'm a ride these doughnuts.
And when it breaks, lock the door, walk away,
won't be nothing else to talk about, nothing else to say.

Chorus:
See I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away,
the only reason that I stay so I can save the day.
I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away,
the only reason that I stay so I can save the day.
I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away,
the only reason that I stay so I can save the day.
I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away,
the only reason that I stay so I can save the day.
See I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away,
the only reason that I stay so I can save the day.
I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away...

Let's stand on the corner, throw rocks at people,
so there's no surprises, written off as evil.
I sleep next to women that I don't deserve,
they like to hurt my pride, while I work their nerves.
Once upon a time it was worth it when the urges get fed,
and the purpose finds a path to the surface.
Is respect considered a breakfast food,
I'm guilty of the type of attitude that wrecks your mood.
The truth can be pain, and I hate to do it,
either face the music, or get away from me stupid.
Super glue it down, now it better not move,
See I'm not the best, but I'm in the top two.
And I'm not that friendly when this cup is empty,
It's a side effect from trying to find the f**ks that sent me.
See I didn't just tap it, I was made this way,
by the same egomaniac that paved this way.

See I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away,
the only reason that I stay so I can save the day.
I'm just waiting for the moment I can break away,
the only reason that I stay so I can save the day.

See I gave up lying, but I still tip-toe,
I'm as stubborn as they come, and I'm known to hit low.
If I had a chisel,
I would carve out a hole for me to hide in every time the mighty
wind blows.
Since no one knows, where the hell we gonna go,
I'm a stand right here, until the end of the show.
I'm a clap my hands, so don't pass the chance,
to unsnap my pants, get on my lap and dance.
No longer am I mad about the things I don't have,
all I'm living for is love and laughs.
The last star fighters weapons were rendered useless,
So we pulled the scissors. and cut the chord to end this music

    General CommentThis song sounds like it is about Slug being in a relationship that he knows is over, and is just hanging by a thread. He's fed up, and he's just waiting around for the next big fight or a reason to "Break away" or break up, and when they do, he will feel relieved, and simply "walk away", without trying to salvage the relationship. It seems they are both unhappy in the relationship, she gives him no respect "considered a breakfast food?" the most important element ina relationship, and in turn he is finding it hard to care about her at all, he doesn't bother lying to be nice, or protect her from the truth anymore, and he is in a bad mood all the time. He is saying he was "axious to bust nuts" and jumped into a relationship with someone he can't love, and now he is trying to push her away.

    General CommentThe opening line tries to explain this one. Hes describing being in a prayer then a meditation to reiterate what he hears from the prayer. I may sound complex about it but this song means a lot to me. Think Criss Angel or something
