Stone Roses – What The World Is Waiting For lyrics

Here comes the wise man
And there goes the fool
You see that burnt out world that he is living in
I don't need to look for the rules
Here comes the donkey
Chained to a ten ton plough
He'll never make that hill in a million years
Whip crack beating down

He loves his brother but he'd sell him for a fistful of gold
He needs a slave for his vision of the promised land
No I don't believe a word
Take me any way the wind blows
You'll never know just what you want to do
Or where you wanna go I think it's time
That you found what the world is waiting for
I think it's time to get real

Here comes the wise man
And there goes the fool
You see that burnt out world that he is living in
I don't need to look for the rules

Here comes the donkey
Chained to a ten ton plough
He'll never make that hill in a million years
Whip crack beating down

Anytime you want it then it's there
All you gotta do is stop it
On the corner and ask
Say hey you don't live today
Stop the world
Stop the world
I'm getting off
I'm getting off
Can't get enough
I'm getting off

    It's all about what donkeys are really thinking. In this song, the donkey is 'the fool' who is struggling against all odds to pull the ten ton plough under the dictarship of 'the wise man', who dangles the carrot of paradise ('the promised land') in front of the donkey. The donkey is fed up of working and slaving away in order to acheive the wise man's dreams. The donkey requests, possibly from an unseen deity, that the earth is temporarily halted so as he can exit this plain of existence and perhaps fly off into space or something.
