"The Receiver" as written by and Daniel Romer-friedman....
Everyone thinks they're in the movies.
They have a camera in their eyes.
And everyone dreams about a moment
that they never can rewind.

I was waiting for the message to arrive.

Everyone is a superhero,
'cause they all live a secret life.
And everyone changes up their costume
when there's something new to fight.

I was waiting for the message to arrive.

Everyone wants to know the answers,
so they all read the New York Times.
But nobody looks inside themselves
when they need something they can't find.

I was waiting for the message to arrive.
I was waiting...

I tried so hard but nothing ever seems to change.
"Point the receiver at the stars."
I can't keep waiting for this moment to come alive.
I'll lock myself inside this metal covered room.
Summer is gone and I can never sleep again.
After everything we've worked for...

Wait until this moment comes alive!
