Oh what am I waiting for?
A spell to be cast or for it to be broken
At the very last!
Some white ghost from my past comes to split me wide open, oh

If I bandage my eyes, will you press in my hand a small simple token?
I was born deaf or else you've never spoken

I thought it was safe for me and my own,
I began hearing these voices in the dial tone
And they come to me now, though I dismembered my phone

They said you want to hear something that you already know,
If it comes from above, well, this one comes from below.
It says, "You are sleeping together, but you will die alone."

I thought it was safe but the seed had been sown,
As a child I aspired to be a super hero.
Now I live with the corpses of the lives I let go,
Oh I know you all know how these things start to show.

I've been trying to make myself better,
So I can fare the fare foul weather.
I write a song like a prison letter.
I write a song maybe to make me feel better,
It won't break free my fetters.

oooooooooOOOOOOO-OOOHHHHHH!!!

I know what came after, but what happened before?
I began making memories at the age of four.
Well I learned to use words,
I got jealous and bored
Soon I'll be passing out cold on the kitchen floor
Soon I'll be passing out cold on the kitchen floor.

Singing,
When am I gonna feel better?
I said when am I gonna feel better?
I said when am I gonna feel better?
I have been patient for a long time now.

I've been the patient for a long time now
I've been the patient for a long time now
I've been the patient for a long time now
And I will never be a younger man now


1! 2! 1, 2, 3! 4, 5, 6!

Oh what am I waiting for?
A spell to be cast or for it to be broken!
At the very last!
Some white ghost from my past comes to split me wide open, oh!

If I hold out my hand
There's nothing at all!
And nothing's a token!

I will be good though my body be broken
(I will be good though my body be broken)
I will be good though my body be broken
(I will be good though my body be broken)
I will be good though my body be broken, oh-oh-ohhh
(I will be good though my body be broken)
I will be good though my body be broken, oh-oh! oh-oh! OH!
(I will be good though my body be broken)
I will be good though my body be broken! oh-oh-ohhh
(I will be good though my body be broken)
I will be good though my body be broken! oh-oh-oohh!
(I will be good though my body be broken)
I will be good though my body be broken! oh-oh-oohhh
(I will be good though my body be broken)

I will be good, may I want for nothing at all.
