Citizen - I'm Sick Of Waiting Lyrics

I don't give enough to take back what I own.
My stories are told out of broken homes.
I could be a bit better if I kill off this ghost.
I'm alone.

I bleed from the inside,
And I won't tell anyone.
I'm nowhere to find,
But I couldn't care at all.
Live like a ghost to keep me from talking, til' you notice where I'm at,
Cause I couldn't care at all.

Nowhere to hide, and nowhere to run to when nobody listens.
I'm just a liar that's tired of trying.
I'll pick myself apart cause I couldn't care at all.

And I'm sick
I'm sick of waiting.

    I thought my headphones were broke so I pulled out the left one and then the vocals came in. So I had to restart the song because I felt like I'd miss something really special if I didn't.

  35. Isis Goode


  36. chelsiii whoo

    +Promethean Venator at least citizen makes a difference to people and makes an impact. you may feel entitled and proud of yourself for working and paying your own bills but by the end of your worthless existence you're no different from anyone else. You don't make a difference. You have no purpose. So do the thousands of fans of citizen a favor. Just end yourself. So we can enjoy our music without having to see the result of a broken condom on a bad night out at the bar comment on a good video.


    I bet you've been taking too many bong hits and eating paint chips lately eh? Your view is derived from pseudo-intellectual idiots. Are you sure it is because you are too unqualified to have a job? I'd have taken offense from your roast if you didn't look like a social outcast turned school shooter. Get your ass back to playing Minecraft and cutting to Citizen. While you're at it, rub some hydrogen peroxide on the wounds. It won't hurt as much as it hurts others of having the misfortune of associating with you.


    i dont understand why people keep commenting like it doesnt help anything.

    Lu Ca

    o no i habe a mangos propic
    Oh no im a weeb

  43. Angelo Rodríguez Greco

    I'm just a liar that's tired of trying.  x.x

  44. Zoië Star Bleau

    I bleed from the inside

  45. SoBobLee

    I always think the normal version of this is where he's angry and he's really showing exactly how he feels because he's not giving up, then with the acoustic version it's like he's come to terms with something and has learnt to accept something because all the fight has burned out of him and he knows there's nothing else he can do


    +So Bob Lee This is amazing.


    There's another version!?!?! can someone link me?

    Troy Howard

    Just look up the same song, without the acoustic.


    my boyfriend and i of 2 years just broke up, so i understand this feeling. he's so unphased by this, it kills me.

    Rachel Cherry

    same! This happened to me and it made me wonder if he ever cared

  46. Redbird Jazzy

    I don't give enough to take back what i own. My stories are told out of broken homes. I would be a bit better if i killed all these ghosts... Im alone.
    Im so fucking alone...


    I feel your pain...

    Redbird Jazzy

    @***** I'm sorry you're alone... I really am. Don't worry someday you're gonna find amazing people.

  47. Skylar Eggrrding

    Layer this song over the sound of a thunderstorm (I use an app for this) and holy shit, chills like crazy

    Nick Sniegowski

    Is there a video of it on your channel?

    Lucy Lou

    if there's not a video, please make one

  48. SiF

    God damn it, why does this have to relate to me so fucking much.

    David Johnston

    @MetallicTrees i'm really happy it does. No matter how you feel. Nobody is alone.

    Desolate Soul

    +David Johnston Unfortunately, this isn't entirely true.

    David Johnston

    @Desolate Soul Don't lie to yourself man. Please.


    +David Johnston I agree with you, absolutely

    Charlie Crome

  63. Storm Easton

  64. MrDragonslayer3000

    what is the genre for this?

    Wonder Bread

    @Briana Lego
    lol no

    Connor Kennett

    I have never really met anyone who has labelled these guys anything, they just dont know how too, i kinda felt like they are alternative punk with an essence of pop punk and post hardcore coming into it 


    @Briana Lego agreee.

    Fabiana Laplante

    I've seen an interview where Mat explains Citizen as alternative rock  but I think they dabble in a few things. I agree with @Connor Kennett 

  65. Eric

    "Cause I couldn't care at all!" <3

  66. Luis Pena

    And I'm sick. I'm sick of waiting

  70. Rene Rodriguez

    Young states

  71. peraltaman

  73. Jessica Foulger

    desperate to see them live, hoping they come to London soon :(


    They do not disappoint, the emotion they pour into their music is incredible. 

  74. writteninthestars420

    I saw them last night and about burst into tears while they played this. I was right in front. The entire crowd was singing. It was amazing. It was just really emotional.


    Where in my comment did I say any of that? You're fucking dumb.

    Alberto Solis

    Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

    luke benjamin

    @ViIence your a fucking douche

  77. Nathan White

    Tabs please?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  78. Omar Aviles

    Yo Danielle is a gorgeous woman with gorgeous tunes. Just saying. Haha.

  79. Omar Aviles

    Good jams. One question, where is this praiaed acoustic album?

  80. Sean Khan

    Im happy to be sad

  81. AnImaginedChild

    Hits a chord

  82. Rakshnna Pattabiraman

    I feel like I have been waiting for this song all my life! It gets me so perfectly! :'( I wish to stay strong, and tell myself that I am not alone.

  83. ryanbritt68

    Such a great song. Both versions are incredibly emotional. I tear up every time I listen to it or sing it.

  84. ViIence

    Everytime I listen to this, I listen to it atleast 10 times.

    That part from 1:00-1:30 is so fucking good.

  85. kayb1217

    citizen ilysm

  86. Stuart Rubio

    You're stating all of hip-hop has no emotion, which is not only ignorant but also naive. Listen to Immortal Technique, try a song tilted you never know. And remember all you need is one thing that refutes your claim to disprove it. Sorry I replied so late.

  87. Michaela

    why is this song so perfect

  88. ViIence

    This is the definition of perfect...

  89. Destiny Withrow

    Story of my life

  90. Rebecca Battersby

    I assume you were aiming for edgy and interesting with that comment.

  91. KE AR

    yes. this is fantastic.

  92. ReprogrammedToHate

    listen to Sadistik.

  93. ReprogrammedToHate

    The original is on their split with Turnover, this version is from the re-release of Young States via Run For Cover records

  94. Fatima Sinde

    anyone know the chords?

  95. Michaela

    I'm in love with this song.

  96. francesco usai

    check the new video from LORA out:
