it feels less important when you want to wait it out
i had enough feeling give me what i want or put me on the streets
i'm getting tired of living my life like nothing's happening

talk is cheap but lies are even cheaper
so it's really me i want you to count the ways you can make it up to me
i'm getting tired of everybody talking and not doing a thing

here i am in the graveyard waiting for a war
i'm here, i'm calling out your name
i've been here before

there's nothing left to talk about but there's plenty left to do
and if it's all the same to me you know it'll be different to you

i'm getting tired of living like i'm dying while the world is moving on

here i am in the graveyard waiting for a war
i'm here, i'm calling out your name
I've been here before

pardon me i must apologize
i've been this way for quite some time
i tried to be just a long time ago

    I believe the correct lyrics are

    "I've been this way for quite some time"

    General CommentThis song is calling for a revolution, because corporate jobs make our lives trivial and miserable.

    "Give me what I want or put me on the street."

    "Here I am in the grave yard waiting for a war."

    Here, he's hoping that people will finally rise up to change the way everything is going on.

    You can also tell in the music video that this is about having a corporate job, hating it and wanting something new.

    "I'm getting tired of living like I'm dying
    While the world is moving on."

    This line shows the contradiction between our environment and how we behave within it.

    "I'm getting tired of everybody talking
    And not doing a thing."

    People talking about changing our sorry situation but not getting out and fighting it.

    "There's nothing left to talk about
    But there's plenty left to do."

    Books, audios and videos have all discussed revolution (and the need for one) and now is the time to actually bring these ideas to life.
