Morning’s come, you watch the red sun rise,
The LED still flickers in your eyes,
Oh you outta’ spare your face the razor,
Because no one’s gonna’ spare the time for you.

No one’s gonna’ watch you as you go,
From a house you didn’t build and can’t control,
Oh, you outta’ spare your face the razor,
Because no one’s gonna’ spare the time for you.
Why don’t you spare the world your labour,
It’s been twenty years and no one’s told the truth.

So listen, Oh,
So listen, Oh,
Don’t wait,
Don’t wait.

So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)

So keep that list of who to thank in mind,
And don’t forget the rich ones who were kind,
Oh, and don’t you spare your face the razor,
Because no one’s gonna’ spare the time for you.
Why don’t you spare their word’s are ‘traitor’,
Take your witch back and leave before you lose.

So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)

So while the sun’s coming down,
Cover ground,
Cover ground.

And if you found some love for these clowns,
Turn around,
Turn around.

I’ll be asleep on the floor of our high school GYM,
Thinking of you and wondering if anyone else could begin,

To listen,
Listen.

Don’t wait,
Don’t wait.

So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
