waiting for the lights to change
the raindrops skip the wiper blades
buildings fall from the sky in panes
and it caries me down

if you gave me a chance to be sincere
do you think they'd let me outta here
gonna walk out in the traffic
if I promise not to make a sound
and the look upon your face
would be chiseled there forever
as the glass came through the windshield
and the car lifted from the ground

maybe at my funeral
they'll say I found the answer
they'll say I had it coming
they'll say I was just sitting around

waiting for the great destruction I am
waiting for Holden Caulfield to call
waiting for the great destruction I am
waiting for the sky
the sky
to open up
make me feel small
like a bird in bad weather
these engines won't stall
time enough
to watch the free world fall
under the black and blue handle of
it will only take a saw

waiting for the lights to change
the lies they learn to rearrange
the truth they hold to exchange
and it carries me down
second hand to the greater fear
these words of promise disappear
so I wrote them down to make it appear
but nothing is what I found

but if it was really all that easy
don't you think I’d have given up by now
and if the questions had an answer
they wouldn’t be believable out loud
and you know that I would tell you
even if it sounded like a lie
funny thing about the truth is that
no-one warned us to wonder why

and I will leave the car door open
as a symbol of my freedom
like the riddles of a dead man
who didn't always need them
and in the end they'll say I’m crazy
’cause I never give a reason
he always talked about tomorrow as if
he were always leaving

and I am

waiting for the great destruction
waiting for Holden Caulfield to call
waiting for the great destruction
I am waiting for the sky
the sky to fall
waiting for the sky
waiting for the sky
waiting for the sky
