The ones who ain’t demanding are just sat there pining
for a simple reward to follow a simple job done
self respect, a life without requests
Oxygen, sea and no battles to be won.

Turn off the lights watch the people glow and fizzle
With the heat of desire for interest and release
We’re following each other around like a dumb herd
Survivors in the worst way, blind to slow defeat

So I look to the face that I love
I look to the god, who never steps in
Poet queen, won't you tether me down the road, wont you lead me out of this scene
Poet Queen, there are so many more of us here, why are we still on the losing team

I look for angels in the waiting room before I take a flight
If she is here there is no fear, your god will see us right
And that feeling in my stomach when this bucket leaves the ground
Don’t feel like a product to be paid for, known or shared around.

Now everybody’s looking at the darkness in between the fireworks
Not at the angels in their waiting room(s) and dreams
the bible never told us which date to stop our games
The fateful day we should’ve started turning round these schemes
