Waiting For the Great Destruction

This song is by Matthew Good.

Waiting for the lights to change
The raindrops skip the wiper blades
The buildings fall, the sky it fades
And it carries me down

If you gave me the chance to be sincere
Do you think they'd let me out of here
Can I walk out into traffic
If I promise not to make a sound

And the look upon your face
Would be chiseled there forever
As the glass came through the windshield
And the car lifted from the ground

And maybe at my funeral
They'll say I found the answer
They'll say I had it coming
They'll say I was just sittin' around

Waiting for the great destruction
I am waiting for Holden Caulfield to call
Waiting for the great destruction
I am waiting for the sky, the sky
To open up
Make me feel small
Like a bird in bad weather
These engines fully stall
And time enough
To watch the free world fall
Under the black and blue hand or glove
It will only take a saw

Waiting for the lights to change
The lies they learn to rearrange
The truth they hold to exchange
And it carries me down

Second hand to the greater fear
These words of promise disappear
So I wrote 'em down to make it clear
But nothing is what I found

And if it was really all that easy
Don't you think I'd have given up by now
And if the questions had an answer
They wouldn't be believable out loud

And you know that I would tell you
Even if it sounded like a lie
The funny thing about the truth is that
No one warned us to wonder why

And I will leave the car door open
As a symbol of my freedom
Like the riddles of a dead man
Who didn't always need them

And in the end they'll say I'm crazy
'Cause I never give a reason
He always talked about tomorrow
As if he were always leaving

And I am waiting for the great destruction
I am waiting for Holden Caulfield to call
Waiting for the great destruction
I am waiting for the sky
The sky to fall
I am waiting for the sky
I'm waiting for the sky
Waiting for the sky
