(Payne/Downes)



They put away the DDT now
But gave metal to the sea
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

The only eagle, only tree
Within a desert that was green
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

Midnight
Draws ever near
Daylight
Is fading so fast
It's so close to midnight
Midnight

The melting ice will fuel the sea
By burning gold from ancient tree
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

This is progress, this is sin
Injecting poison in her skin
A hundred years can't wait
A hundred years can't wait another day

Midnight
Draws ever near
Daylight
Is fading so fast
It's so close to midnight
Midnight
