The unsettled mind as it climbs in the light
Leaving the senses to fend for themselves
The senses collect from the valuable data
Of beta carotene and ????
The unsettled mind as it climbs in the light
Leaving the senses to fend for themselves, then
the senses wander the sky

Chorus
Is there life in waiting for you
Is there life in waiting for you
Waiting for you

The national debt as it climbs in the light
Leaving the people to fend for themselves
The people collect of the undeniable data
of eyeballs weapons and microwaves
The national debt as it climbs in the light
Leaving the people to fend for themselves, then
The people found out the lie

(CHORUS)

Waiting to get you high
Waiting to touch the sky

(CHORUS)

    General Commentthis song is actually called "cencus"
    "waiting for you is the stupid fake title the bootlegger gave it

    PS.. it's really is a shame that these songs got leaked.. and even more of a shame how fast they're spreading...
    now we wont have anything to look foreward to for the next album

    I hope that bootlegger is happy...

    General CommentUmmm... This has come to my attention, but you keep blaming a bootlegger. Did you know you are as a guilty as he is? And I know you own all of the new MP3's out, because you are like the rest of us SOAD fan's (or like any die-hard fan in general) the second we heard about the new song's, we jumped on out computers and DL the whole damn album. When we heard that they recorded over 30 tracks we all wanted them, now that we got them, I (and every other SOAD fan) are happier than a pig in shit (especially for Chick 'N Stew) and Serj said that since these songs leaked they won't use any of these tracks except for maybe soundtracks or compilations, and will start writing brand new material for their next album. So cheer up and stop the blame game.

    General CommentI know stuff becuase i have frineds who know stuff, and yes, don't think i'm not happy that these songs made thier way out, the problem is soad is pissed as shit, and they have no material for thier next album now. it's sad and happy at the same time

    I blame the bootlegger, becuase it's the bootlegger's fault they got out in the firs tplace.. or a hacker.. no one knows yet.. arrrr

    General CommentTrust me, I wouldn't worry about the next album. The material on this album (with the exception of a few songs) wasn't going to be as good as anything off Toxicity, or even Self-titled. Songs like "We Don't Give a..." (PIG) or "Why" (K.I.T.T.) are just original demo's and as enjoyable they are to me, they aren't the best of work. So now that these songs are out, SOAD can now work on more bizzare original music, and leave these songs for compilations and such, cheer up! (they weren't gonna release this album for another year or so, I heard anyway)

    General Commentyeah, the album wasn't scheduled to be out till early 2003, but it's been pushed back, since these songs gout out. Not sure why, you'd think that they'd want to get it out EARLIER, but whatchagonnado, eh?

    General Commenti just put the actual songs on kazaa but i dont know all of the real names for them. the names i have them under are: .36, American Dream, Boom, Chick 'N Stew, Desecrate, Fortress, Highway Song, KITT, Pictures, Power Struggle, Virgin Tea, Waiting For You (Version 1), Waiting For You (Version 2), Want Me To Try. if by any chance you start downloading those and theyre not the real songs then something happened because i have them and im sure its really REALLY them. if you watch the backstage footage from toxicity you see shavo playing American Dream so i know that song is real.
