Wait For The Wheel

everybody’s reaching for the golden ring
or maybe just a brass band
ever try to fly with a broken wing
i know you’d understand

sometimes the only thing to do
is to take another point of view

you gotta wait for the wheel
to come around

everybody’s hangin’ by a thread
way up above the tar pits
remember what they said
about if the shoe fits

jump on in and disappear
they’ll dig you up in a million years

you gotta wait for the wheel
to come around

maybe it’s true maybe we’re all gonna die
when the ground comes up to meet the sky
maybe it’s a wonder but i don’t know why
do you?

the greatest thing that’s ever been done
still has yet to be
comin’ out from under the thumb
of this tired old history

they say you never see the light
not until the timing is right

you gotta wait for the wheel
to come around

i remember goin’ to a concrete block
on a school day
listenin’ to the big mouth talk
on april fools day

whatever they were talkin’ about
it took me years to get it out

i had to wait for the wheel
to come around

maybe it’s true maybe we’re all gonna die
when the ground comes up to meet the sky
maybe it’s a wonder but i don’t know why
do you?

i once knew a man whose brain was cooked
like a pork rind
he only had one favorite book
and he read it all the time

and when he got to the end
he started all over again

he couldn’t wait for the wheel
to come around

there’s an angry wall across the sky
we need a breakthrough
we may not make it but we have to try
it’s the only thing to do

whether its sundown or whether it’s dawn
depends on what side of the wheel you’re on

you gotta wait for the wheel
to come around
