"I Can't Wait" as written by Chad L. Gray, Ryan Martinie, Matthew Mcdonough and Greg Tribbett....
I am the plague, I am the loss, I am the bitterness
I am the war, I am the death, I am the crucifix
I am the sacrifice, I'm the end, I am the fall of man
I am apocalypse, I'm the death wish, I am the last breath
I am sin, I am dead zen

I can't wait until it's over, I'm dead and gone
I can't wait to lose it all
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers, I'll prove 'em wrong

I am catastrophe, I am conflict, I am warfare
I am fatality, I am the wound that's in your head
I am the dark, I am the fear, I am the orphan lamb
I am anxiety, I am the crypt, I am nothingness
I am hate, I am lost faith

I can't wait until it's over, I'm dead and gone
I can't wait to lose it all
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers, I'll prove 'em wrong, yeah
I'll prove 'em wrong, yeah

I'm empty, empty, I'm empty, empty, I'm empty

I can't wait until it's over, I'm dead and gone
I can't wait to lose it all
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers, I'll prove you wrong
I'll prove you wrong, I'll prove you wrong, I'll prove you wrong
I can't wait until it's over, I'm dead and gone
I can't wait to lose it all
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers
I'll prove you wrong

    General Commentwell gotrock thats one of the themes in almost every mudvayne song so i kinda agree.
    to understand mudvayne u gotta understand there views on life thro their other songs cuz they use references to there other songs in a song, thats the best way i can explain it
    I Cant Wait is very similar to TOOLs masterpiece Aenema
    the verses are all the things that Chad and Ryan feel that are destroying this shitty world on top of the emotions that come with it and our fears.
    I am catastrophe, I'm conflict I am warfare- war
    I am fatality, I am the wound that's in your head- fear of death and fear of insanity
    I am the orphan lamb- basically sayin god is a joke false faith
    and the chorus is sayin this:

    I can't wait until it's over-he cant wait for the world to end
    All done and gone- cant wait for everything and everyone to b gone
    I can't wait to lose it all, fuck it all- he doesnt care about anything
    Fuck you all. There's nothing left anyway- and fuck ever one else
    this is my fav line
    They say that dead men don't pull triggers-he doesnt mean literally dead but figuratively like dead inside (another song on this album)
    Well prove 'em wrong- a man that has nothing to lose is an extremly dangerous man
    im not sayin this IS what the song is about rather some of my opinions
    but i do know that the lads in mudvayne r more intelligent then u or i will ever b so no one will ever true maeaning
    Thinks for readin

    General CommentAt first I thought that he was just talking about all the shitty things in the world too, but then I realized that he was saying that the self, "I", is the source of all these perceived realities, you know? Like, with the death of the concept of self, all these things disappear, right? I mean jeez, he says just that in Scarlet Letters : "Do you believe in loss, do you believe in faith, do you believe in death, now that I'm gone?"
