Lyrics[edit | edit source]

please drive slow
i've never been this way before
violence reels in the underground

yes, i am waiting
in silence throe
to fill the meetings
to strike me down
no more a reason
than god above
let your curses run
yes, i am waiting
for your love
for your love

radio waves of a dying sun
radio speaks my soul alone
forget my names, erase the page
antennas draw the passengers

yes, i am waiting
in silence throe
my blood of treason
my tears of hope
no more a feeling
than being cold
of playing on

yes, i am waiting
as i walk your streets
yes, i am waiting
as i ride your dreams
yes, i am waiting
inside your doubts
inside your doubts
just let me out
just let me out
