Ani Difranco – The Waiting Song lyrics

Your basic average super star
Is singing about justice
And peace
And love
And I am glaring at the radio,
Swearing
Saying that's just what I was afraid of
The system gives you just enough
To make you think that you see change
They will sing you right to sleep
And then they'll screw you just the same

But I will wait
Yes, I will wait for the truth

They think I make a big deal about nothing
But they still think I'm
Kinda cute
They joke about the staus quo
To break the ice
Once the ice is broken
I hope they all fall through
'cause this is no joke to me
They don't fool me
With their acts of sensitivity
They too shall pass
Just like everyone
Who's only here for my ass

And I can't wait
Oh I can't wait til they get their due

Baby I've only got a minute
Baby I have to go
A minute is all my life
Will ever allow
Let's grow old
And die together
Let's do it now
Because you'll do all the jobs
No one else will do
And you'll step aside
And you will let me come through
You have all my respect
I'll leave it here when I go
Maybe I never told you, baby
Maybe you don't know

But maybe if we wait
If we wait things will improve
Maybe we just wait
And things will improve
You know, they've got to improve

Your basic average superstar
Is singing about justice
And peace
And love
And I am glaring at the radio
Swearing
Saying that's just what I was afraid of
The system gives you just enough
To make you think that you see change
They'll sing you right to sleep
And then they'll screw you just the same

He says I know you have to go
You have gone before
We are fighting on two different fronts
Of the same war
But no matter what else
I will do
I will wait for you
