lyrics

Work the circuit do the knee jerk as you dance the party line
Dying on the vine you digitized yourself out of your life
Blindly trading favors for a chance to touch the savior's hand
Watching from the sidelines as your golden calf is melted down

Waiting for the call
Marching down the primrose path
Waiting for the call
Fighting us instead of them
Waiting for the call that never comes

The power of the people is a temporary obstacle
They amplify the divide cheering as we tear ourselves apart
Realize you're just a number in a complicated game
Democracy's a fantasy when it gets played this way

Waiting for the call
Hanging on his every word
Waiting for the call
Demanding praise we don't deserve
Waiting for the call that never comes
