Lyrics
This is enough to give your money a run
Procrastinating till the kingdom come
You tell yourself that you do what you can
Well, what will you do when the **** hits the fan
They're out to get you, all of them, excuse me but
Nobody said it was gonna be easy
I see you crying, just give me your hand
You can't sit back when you're taking a stand

If you believe that your time is coming
But you're counting on your savior to come
You're gonna be a long time waiting
You're gonna be a long time
If you believe that it's for the taking
But somebody's gonna do it for you
You're gonna be a long time waiting
You're gonna be a long time

I could do without this talk of getting ahead
When it's a battle just to get out of bed
My will is strong but it's starting to break
There's only so much a body can take
I get your message but I don't like the tone
You can only help yourself, and you alone

If you believe that your time is coming
But you're counting on your savior to come
You're gonna be a long time waiting
You're gonna be a long time
If you believe that it's for the taking
But somebody's gonna do it for you
You're gonna be a long time waiting
You're gonna be a long time

I don't need no validation
From anyone at any cost
A trophy consolation
For something that I never lost
I need, I need to know
How to feel the way you say, you say you do
So I can give some validation to you

I don't need no validation
From anyone at any cost
A trophy consolation
For something that I never lost
I need, I need to know
How to feel the way you say, you say you do
So I can give some validation to you

No I don't need no validation
From anyone at any cost
A trophy consolation
For something that I never lost

If you believe that your time is coming
But you're counting on your savior to come
You'll be a long time waiting
You'll be a long time
If you believe that it's for the taking
But somebody's gonna do it for you
You'll be a long time waiting
You'll be a long time
