"The Wait" as written by Brian Craddock, David Michael Nadolski and Brandon Scott Sidebottom....
(Originally recorded by Killing Joke)

[One, two, three, four]

Motives changing, day to day
The fire increases, masks decay
I look at the river, white foam floats down
The body's poisoned, gotta sit tight

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

After wakening, silence grows
The screams subside, distortion shows
Mutant thoughts, of bad mouthed news
It's just another birth, of distorted views

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

    General CommentI watched the live performance of this song and Jaz said right before it a few senetnces of introduction. He asked the audience some questions about unresolved riddles of world history and then said - "I WAIT for the truth".

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is just about the wait for the truth to come out from politicians about world events, and the fact that it never seems to come. When they performed at the 25th anniversary gig at Shepherds Bush, Jaz said 'Who killed Dr, David Kelly and Diana?, I'm waiting for a bit of honesty now. Did Tony Blair know about Kelly do you think?, or was it Alistair Campbell? I'm waiting for the truth" just before the song was performed. which sort of confirmed it for me.

    General CommentI dunno. I used to think of this song when I'd drop acid and sit there waiting for it to kick in. But as to its meaning...no clue. Seems to possibly be drug related...not in the way I said earlier though.
