Antigone Rising – Waiting, Watching, Wishing lyrics

Here we go again looking for a ride
Got a smile to hide all the rain in my eyes
Got a bag stuffed filled with love and goodbyes.
I don't care if I never grow up
Don't want to shrink in a suit, don't want to live
Just to suck someone bone-dry
I'd rather die

Each time I think back to my hometown
My sad skinny self standin' around
Waiting, watching, wishing, for something to happen
I used to dream about a boy like you
With your hair dyed black
And your eyes jet blue
Hoping, searching, and praying for something fantastic

We've been here before
Stood up at the door
Holding secrets we'd never say
Hey don't hang your head
Feel the breeze instead
Fear no shadow don't feel no shame
Hey hey hey...

All that it took was one punch in the face
To make me wanna steal that guy's car in the first place.
Grass on suburban lawns never looked so black.
Slip through the window, step through the door
Hand me your hairpin your knees to the floor
Head to the highway, we're never turnin' back
Never turnin' back, never turnin' back...

Car by car and line by line
Someday you'll find your place and I'll find mine
In a new time and a brand new town... Get up get up get up get down!

On and on and on we go
We've got no radio so we sing songs we know
For miles and miles of open road get up get up get up let's go!


Get up get up get up get down
(repeat 3x)
