Motives changing
Day to day
The fire increases
Masks decay
I look at the river
White foam floats down
The body's poisoned
Got to sit tight

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

After awakening
The 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

    I know it's originally a Killing Joke song....so I dunno why I'm putting the meaning here, but anyway..

    I don't know the ACTUAL meaning, but I'm guessing...that it has something to do with Soldiers waiting to move out or something.

    Reynolds, not every song in the world is about drugs. Not trying to just single you out, but also everyone else who thinks certain vague songs have to be about drugs. I personally don't know what it is about, and you could be right, but I kinda doubt it.

    Most underrated song on Garage Inc. by far, I haven't checked out the live version on the new DVD but I will soon.

    My favorite part is ~3:14 with the double bass, just amazing.
