Vain

Itís all up to you
you see
As long as you wait for someone else
to feed the input
All that youíre gonna get
is waiting

Living all in vain
Moving is a strain
Hopeís gone down the drain
Youíre wasting away like chalk in the rain

Ride that horse
Donít let chance take the reins
(fat chance that is anyway)
As long as you wait for someone else
to make it happen
All that youíre gonna get
is waiting

Living all in pain
Moving is a strain
Initiativeís gone down the drain
Wishing for is all in vain

If youíre not out there demanding everything out of life
all that youíre gonna get
is laziness and lazy coincidences
and itís just not enough
to make that wild thistle bloom
