You’ve been waiting from the moment you were born
Have you worked out what you’re waiting for?
It takes patience to sit staring at your food
While hunger eats a hole in you

You lose track of all the days
You’ve been working for some future raise
You might die before you get paid
You might die before you get paid

And it’s all you can do
To keep on moving like you do

In the valley you only saw the hills
Went to the mountain but you couldn’t stand the chill
Because the summer is always somewhere else
And it’s a cold world baby when you’re wrapped up in your self

And it’s all you can do
To keep on moving like you do

This life’ll get you with delerium tremens
There must be a way where all beginnings have an end
It takes patience but it also takes a fool
The let hunger eat a hole in you
