Never been one to follow the process
Never needed more lines in the sand
Know what I want and I know what I don't want
Don't need the angry elephant
Don't need the jumpy jackass
Got half a mind to start a whole new system
Cash in on the one in place
No talking heads talking in circles
Time to cut the tail off
Because everyone is tired of the chase

We say we say
Wake us when it's over
We say we say
Tell us when you're through
For all the years that we've been waiting
On all the promises you've made
We say we say
We're ready for something new

Somewhere in a dark, damp corner of America
They're manufacturing a steady stream
Of cheap shots, misinformation
And an army of long tall pale-faced men of means
All this talk of choosing
What choices do we get?
The lesser of two evils
Does such a creature still exist?

We say we say
Wake us when it's over
We say we say
Tell us when you're through
For all the years that we've been waiting
On all the promises you've made
We say we say
We're ready for something new

This can't be all that you've got left
This can't be all that there is to this
Wake us up when the bombs stop dropping
Wake us up when the cons start walking
Wake us up when the boat starts rocking
Wake us up when you stop talking

We say we say
Wake us when it's over
We say we say
Tell us when you're through
For all the years that we've been waiting
On all the promises you've made
We say we say
We're ready for something new

For all the years that we've been waiting
On all the promises you made
We say we say
We're ready for something new

Wake us up when you stop talking
