Verse 1

I've been waiting, with my eyes on the road, transfixed,

Stuck in an incomplete life filled with asterisks.

My charred soul sings a hauntingly beautiful dirge.

Wash away all the gnawing pain with your sweet surge.

Chorus

What's taking you so long?

Won't you pick up the pace?

Close my eyes to the light,

And show me your true face.

I promise I'm not afraid,

Lay me down on my death bed,

And grant me liberation.

Verse 2

I'm weary, my whole world has gone up in the air.

My monsters wear pieces of me as solitaires.

My shadow is caught up in web of thick dark tar.

I reach out to save it, but it's too late, too far.

Chorus

What's taking you so long?

Won't you pick up the pace?

Close my eyes to the light,

And show me your true face.

I promise I'm not afraid,

Lay me down on my death bed,

And grant me liberation

Bridge

From a life that has lost its appeal.

All that is left is all that's not real.

I long to be with him,

To find him in sweet dreams,

So let me sleep forever now.

Chorus

What's taking you so long?

Won't you pick up the pace?

Close my eyes to the light,

And show me your true face.

I promise I'm not afraid,

Lay me down on my death bed,

And grant me liberation.
