Alkaline Trio - While You're Waiting Lyrics




There's a hope in my head
That's been cut and bleed
Dry as your bloodshot eyes
And there's smoke in the air
And it's soon to clear
Revealing our demise
There are some who say
That it's a-okay
If it makes you feel all right
It's just way too bad
Now you're worse than sad
All locked up there in side

And I don't know how you feel
But I'll make you a deal
If you'll make it out alive
My shoulders and ears
Are all yours my dear
I Hope it comes as no surprise
You've been known to say
That you're a-okay
When you're feeling sick inside
I just want you to know
I got no place to go
Until the day you die

While you're waiting
Be thankful for your fingers
I'll be fading
With the colors of your pictures
'I'm not crying wolf,' you whisper,
'I'm really dead this time...
I'm really dead this time'

There's a hope in my head
That's been cut and bleed
Dry as your bloodshot eyes
And there's smoke in the air
And it's soon to clear
Revealing our demise
You've been known to say
That you're a-okay
When you're feeling dead inside
I just want you to know
I got no place to go
Until the day you die

While you're waiting,
Be thankful for your fingers,
I'll be fading
With the colors of your pictures
'I'm not crying wolf,' you whisper,
'I'm really dead this time...
I'm really dead this time'

They locked you up
They threw away the key
Sutured your mouth shut
Murdered your family
Right before your eyes
What could you do?
Right before your eyes
They took it all from you

Your contemplating
You hanging from your ceiling
Can't help hating
You for having that feeling
I'm not joking when I tell you
I'd miss you all the time
I already miss you all the time

    Seriously, Remains is one of my favourite CDs by these guys. I can't believe these songs weren't released. They're fuckin' quality!

  22. donotwantdowant

    @sexmeup8 The Clash were signed to a major record label, are you telling me they weren't good? Of course, I ask myself, why am i arguing with someone who's knowledge of music is rivaled by their mastery of the English language.

  23. donotwantdowant

    @DariaMelancholia they SOLD OUT their NAME to NIKE for MONEY. what part in there isn't selling out? troll...

  24. donotwantdowant

    @DariaMelancholia i'm sorry. i didn't realize that making a shoe with nike wasn't selling out. thank you so much for your enlightened point of view. obviously you're a troll.

  25. donotwantdowant

    @vannaandthewind they have a shoe by nike... in the interview the guy from nike said that alkaline trio embodied that spirit that nike tried to show or some garbage... their sell outs bro. i still listen to the trio, but they sold out.

  26. Dan Davies

    "Your contemplating
    You hanging from your ceiling
    Can't help hating
    You for having that feeling
    I'm not joking when I tell you
    I'd miss you all the time
    I already miss you all the time" Those are the best lines of this song for me. Alkaline Trio is amazing.

  27. Will Drader

    @yoeseph fuck you is all i have to say,they are not sell outs...you are a sell out for saying they sold out...go play in traffic....and dont comment with useless imformation no one cares about...sell outs really lol...are you stupid? stupid!

  33. greidy93

    @MrJPerks
    Most of the songs are B-sides, so they can be found on other albums... Or rather, singles and splits :p

  34. James Perks

    I am so happy Alkaline Trio relesed this album. So many great songs that may have gone unheard otherwise
