Wait, for me

Wait, for me

Wait, for me

Strain, for me

Strain, for me

Strain, for me


Yeah I like to wait

I stick to my faith

Far from sheltered, close to hate

Time to clean the slate

Dream, for me

Dream, for me

Dream, for me

The feeling must be natural

What seems light might come off personal

Your words are met with some delay

Still I'll do anything you say

You command, I'll obey

I'll be good and stay

(Repeat chorus)

[The slate]

Even though I'm at your hand, I'm itchin' to know where I stand

[The slate]

Yeah it strikes me in the head

I'm surprised, I'm not dead [I'm not dead]

And in your moment, of weakness, you seek me out,

Open up, the same day

Keep on feeding something, that you'd promptly throw away
