The Living End – Heat Wave lyrics

The hot ground burns the soles of my feet
Above the sky is turning red
Pray that there will be a cool change
Before we all go up in flames

This is a desert land,
Where the sun burns on the sand
Will it ever rain?
The weatherman says it's getting hotter
But he don't need to tell me what I already know

And you wait and you wait and you wait
This is a heatwave
'Cause you can't get away, get away
This is a heatwave
This is a heatwave
This is a heatwave

Dark clouds threatening to break down
Faces hiding in the shade
Lightening twisted up like wire
Minor birds falling out of the sky
A nation melting in the sun

This is a desert land,
Where the sun burns on the sand
Will it ever rain?
The weatherman says it's getting hotter
But he don't need to tell me what I already know

And you wait and you wait and you wait
This is a heatwave
'Cause you can't get away, get away
This is a heatwave

A heatwave
A heatwave
A heatwave
A heatwave

I'm not waiting for the heat to drop, yeah!
And I'm not waiting for the bomb to drop, yeah!
Times up now too late what have you got?

And you wait and you wait and you wait
This is a heatwave
'Cause you can't get away, get away
This is a heatwave
And you wait and you wait and you wait
This is a heatwave
'Cause you can't get away, get away
This is a heatwave
This is a heatwave
This is a heatwave
Whoa
