Lyrics
Ya look at me with ice cold eyes
you and I we both realize
There's nothin' here, nothin' much to do
There's no love left between me and you

Your self rightious ways and means
Your dirty trix an' your nasty schemes
They'll take you down one day you'll see
Because life has a karmic memory
An' there's nothin' to say, nothing to do
But wait until the truth dawns on you

And when you wake up from your dream
And take a cold hard look at reality
Ya just might find there could have been a better way
And you'd still have a friend today
But there's nothin' to say, nothing to do
But wait until the truth dawns on you

The road to hell well it's a long way down
When your feet are on fire you've hit the ground
When the devil screams, "I've got you now !"
It'll be too late for your soul to be found

So go ahead Lucifer play your games
You ain't got no conscience, ain't got no shame
You got no resolutions, got no solutions
an' a muddy trail of water runnin' thru your veins
But there's nothin' to say, nothing to do
But wait until the truth dawns on you

and doesn't it all seem to be a little strange
from a point of veiw that's so deranged
You sit there thinkin' you got all the power
and drink by drink you count the hour
But there's nothin' to say, nothing to do
But wait until the truth dawns on you

You break a sweat, you get a chill
you feel the heat of desire but ya can't sit still
Your knee is jumpin', it's gonna fly
and there's nobody around no more to get you high
I say Nobody, nobody, nobody in there
nobody, nobody, to take you home
nobody, nobody, to say it allright
nobody, nobody, 'cause you're alone
You shake your head, oh what to do ?
Maybe baby then truth will dawn on you
an I'm waitin for the truth ( waitin' for the truth )
Waitin' for the truth ( Waitin' for the truth)
Waitin' for the truth to dawn on you (waitin' for the truth to dawn on you )
Waitin' for the truth to dawn on you ( waitin' for the truth to dawn on you)
Waitin' for the truth to dawn on you
Waitin' for the truth to dawn on you
Waitin' for the truth to dawn on you
Waitin' for the truth to dawn on you
