I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna wait (wait)
I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna wait

They say way back when knew how
But there's nothing telling you now
Just to do your right and not your wrong
When wrong is easy and right is hard
And we've all got our weaknesses
And only you know what yours is
But your tomorrows all that seems to escape from your lips

But I don't wanna wait, today
For something that might never ever show it's face
Again
I promise that I've heard too much already
To me it seems ridiculous to trust in all of your games, you play
It's one life, one world, one chance.

And I don't wanna wait (wait)
I don't wanna wait (wait)
I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna wait (yeah)

Moving forward to right now
A government that let you down
A racist leader no one trusted
An army that's bigger than us
And a poverty on a global scale
A fragile world with fragile air and
Fragile water I'm sure they'll put off til tomorrow

But I don't wanna wait, today
For something that might never ever show it's face
Again
I promise that I've heard too much already
To me it seems ridiculous to trust in all of your games, you play
It's one life, one world, one chance.

And I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna wait for you and your games now
No, I don't no whoa no, I just can't wait
I just can't

I'm skipping forward to the ending
To that point or two impeding to that moment
That all that stops that one day when that bottom drops
And we remember our voices had a chance
Yea we had our choice but time is a luxury
We as a people we might no longer afford

But I don't wanna wait, today
For something that might never ever show it's face
Again - I promise that I've heard too much already
To me it seems ridiculous to trust in all of your games, you play
It's one life, one world, one chance

And I don't wanna wait... I don't wanna wait
There's not enough of time, so I don't wanna wait
You know I've got a lot on my mind, so I can't wait
Have to reach the end of the line, so I don't wanna wait
No I'm not fine, don't wanna wait, it's not for me

    My OpinionI believe that this song is about always being told what to do, and if we step out of line, we are punished. We are told all of our lives to adhere to the decisions of superiors regardless of what we think of them. The fact of the matter is that we all make mistakes and there is nothing wrong with that. The "I don't want to wait" aspect refers to not wanting to always be restricted. Taken out of context, the "Fragile water I'm sure they'll put off til tomorrow" part shows that the restrictions placed upon us could be inhibiting us from changing the world and shaping it for the greater good.

    Just my interpretation...
