lyrics

It’s never a good time to hit the brakes
In a world that’s built for speed, that runs on haste

They can’t say when
It will be over
They can’t tell us
How long it’ll take to heal
With predictions like
Carnival mirrors
It’s all contorted
There’s nothing that looks quite real

When there’s nowhere to go but here
Every day is a story yet to break
And when all that you have is time
Well there’s nothing to do but

Wait
Wait
Wait
Wait

We pressed the pedal but got nothing back
What should have been a correction ended up as a crash

Every failure to
Stop the transmission
Is a moment
That serves as a metaphor
For the way that
A lie can travel
Around the world
Before the truth can get out the door

When there’s nowhere to go but here
Every day is a story yet to break
And when all that you have is time
Well there’s nothing to do but

Wait
Wait
Wait
Wait
