Everybody's waiting on you to get it together.

lyrics

Everybody’s waiting on you
To get it together.
Everybody’s waiting on you
To get it together.


…Wait
…Wait
…Waiting for the words….to come
Hoping patience is a virtue, So I’m pacing in a circle
With virgil, in the first room
With a Plato Hors D'oeuvres, it’s hazing by deferral
Asking waves of atheists how faithlessness can serve you
There’s no explanations and another eight of these to burn through
Expectation is the worst food,
Depending on your taste, the flavor could be worse chewed
And delayed gratification can be a curse too
So, I’m procrastinating like Satan with a curfew
It’s break time, it’s laziness in work boots, a late grind
I drop the ladle in this word soup, ate blind
Glacial is the pacing in this pursuit, hang right
to find another great line — to an absurd queue.
‘n take 5.

Everybody’s waiting on you
To get it together.
Everybody’s waiting on you
To get it together.

Everybody's waiting
Everybody's waiting
Everybody's waiting
Everybody's waiting

There’s a weight on my chest
I don’t say this jest, but I’ve lived with a grain of regret
That I’ve wasted the greatest days of my life chained to a desk
So in case I forget, remember this shit is paid for in breaths
Need an angel investor — I’m chasing a check
Since yesterday’s price is not today’s, it raises the later it gets
Basically spent on your fate, just to wake up in debt
Taking the wheel in a game of roulette, without placing a bet
Yet - you can spin it how you wanna spin it
But the data suggests that I didn’t play to my strengths,
Coulda put the label to rest and kept making bangers for praise
But instead I caved from the stress till the train was trailing away
Creative procrastination as my ex would say
A million things to do and none that would lessen the strain
I was willing able and foolish to try and mess with a flame
in a building, basement to roof with no fire exit escapes
I would find there was less on my plate when I’d press on the brakes
Not realizing the engine would tank in this vegetable state
Then eventually anxiety, depression and pain
Fed me the grapes in an emperors cape and kept me restrained,
Reined. But as the pressure for relevance gave
I found liberation in no expectations with plenty of space
Overzealous the immensity bent the edge of the frame
Overextended myself in this effort to change…
But the more I did, the less I became
Drained, thin, spread to a paste, sandwiched between the bread I could break
A genre, a movie and record was made,
And there was nobody left by the stage with attention to pay — but I did it though.
My limitations were temporary — that’s critical.
I set the pace and whenever ready, delivered gold
This is a thank you for everything you've given, though
Sorry, I kept you waiting. Let’s get it yo.


Everybody’s waiting on you
To get it together.
Everybody’s waiting on you
To get it together.

Ain't nobody waiting
Ain't nobody waiting
Ain't nobody waiting
Ain't nobody waiting

Ain't nobody waiting but you.
