Lyrics

Can you wait a little longer

Written By: Dan Appenzeller

verse
Good bad night and day
Two sides to be played
Your god my god whos to say
Good bye another day

Two sides dark and light
voices rage on through the night
sometimes two wrongs make it right
When your rich and your white

chorus
Can you wait a little longer
Can you wait a little longer
Can you wait a little longer for the natural change to occur

verse
To bad about your son
it was a dirty job
but say it had to be done
Now you know the benifit of
money and knowledge
ones gotta fight
one goes to collage
USC
UCLA
USMC
Iraq

To good to be true
Slinging the rock will make some dreams come true
Oh ya gotta wonder baby who got who
Have you got it or has it got you

Repeat Chorus

Oh no
are we gonna go down that road again
the One that says we'll never be friends
Are we traveling in a circle again

Bridge
There's a million stories
In a thousand countries
dictated nicely for us all

By a thousand writers and a few insiders
Who tell them how they're gonna recall it all
but I don't think that this can last forever
No I don't think that this can last for long

I'd like to think that I'm a natural man
living according to some natural plan
I'd Like to think that someday things will be right
and I can lay down the arsenal and give up the fight
Repeat Chorus

Oh no
are we gonna go down that road again
the One that says we'll never be friends
Are we traveling in a circle again

Politics as usual

Written By: Dan Appenzeller

Well your born to the earth
You gatta learn to crawl
But the views much better
if you stand up tall
You can lean on a friend
but if he moves your gonna fall
you better stand on your own or you won't stand at all

My teachers used to tell me "Dan"
"you know you can't just play
If you want to get ahead
In the world today
You've got to learn to push and shove and fight and kill
If you want to finish life at the top of the hill

Chorus
Maybe theres away to change clothes or the way you wear you hair
But if you want to learn to change this word
You're gonna have to learn
you're gonna have to learn
you're gonna have to learn to care
Well I don't have a clue
What I'm supposed to do
I guess I'l sing the sog
and try and get along

Well it's politics as usual
gonna be a fight
screaming on the left of me
whispering on the right
another swing of the pendulum
change in philosophy
We don't think about the future
we just wonder what it's costing us now

The serpintine of solders
Marches on the desert sand
Sent by fools and hypocrites
and those of good intention
March on March on the cry goes out
the sun pounds like a fist
At night the solder dreams of West Virginia and Carolina and California and Alabama and Colorado, South Dakota, Arizona

Repeat Chorus

Oil is the opium
For us junkies of the west
And I am one and you are one
And never shall we rest
Until we hold the liquid gold
Much closer the the nest
I wish that I could say these words were spoken of in jest
But they're not
