Oh, what am I waiting for
A spell to be cast, or for it to be broken
At the very last, some wild ghosts from my past come to split me wide open
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 say you wanna hear something that you already know
If it comes from above, well this one comes from below
They say you are sleeping together, but you will die alone

I thought it was safe, but the seed had been sewn
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 fair/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

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 (x2)

Singing when am I gonna feel better?
I Said, when am I gonna feel better? (x2)
I have been patient for a long time now
I've been impatient for a long time now (x3)
and I will never be a younger man

Oh, what am I waiting for
A spell to be cast or for it to be broken
At the very last, some wild ghosts from my past come to split me wide open
If I hold out my hand there is nothing at all because nothing's a token

I will be good, though my body be broken (x7)
(I will be good, though my body be broken) (x7)
I will be good
May I want for nothing at all
