Lyrics
The longer I wait, The deeper the pain
The more I ache, The more I'm afraid
Have a little mercy, Don't you hear me cry?
This ship is going down, yet the song won't die, because it's

On me, In me, Over me, Under me, Inside - Oh yeah
It's on me, In me, Over me, Under me, Inside baby
It's on me, In me, Over me, Under me, Inside - an I've been wasting away
like rain, on a lonely day, you don't need it
not on a lonely day in HELL
There's bats in the belfry, They're calling' my name
Come back to the darkness, You must be insane
Cry baby cry, There's nowhere to run
There's a joker in the corner, With a loaded gun
Oh dear God it's an Armageddon, Oh dear God it's a crazy world
Hey up there are you forgetting', Hey, hey excuse me sir
Well I, I put my gun away
Praying an embracing dreams, never to be seen or heard
Should I be erasing all these, unspoken words
With water, just wash them away
With rain, just wash me away again

Hold on a little bit longer
There's bound to be some light
And should I die before the dawn
God Bless you lover good night - and know that you're

On me, In me, Over me, Under me, Inside - Oh yeah
You're on me, In me, Over me, Under me, Inside, baby
You're on me, In me, Over me, Under me, Inside - and there's a cross I bear

I'm frustrated from not getting no where
and I'm jaded beyond repair and I'm
Damned if I do! Damned If I don't! Damned if I will, and Damned so I won't!

Do you turn your back, Do you walk away
Do you say "Hey neighbor, It's a beautiful day"
An "hey how's the weather, heard it's gonna get cold"
Oh yeah everything's great, since I abandoned my soul

Oh dear God it's an Armageddon, Oh dear God it's a crazy world
Won't be long now I'll be guessing, tangled webs will tear us down
It's so very complicated

Deep is the ocean yet, the tide still fades away
Everybody wants their wishes granted in a day
I been patient, still I'm getting' nowhere
I'm frustrated, don't want to comb my hair and I'm JADED

(Chorus)
An I been wasting away
