lyrics

V1
How many times have you heard a wish a day is gon' work?
Want with all that is in you, patience is a virtue
And eventually those good things surely will come...

But I'm sick of sitting, waiting, wishing.
Done... with being treated like shit, feeling strung...
Out on ones that do not deserve my love and attention,
This state of suspension I'm caught up in,
Tossed from web to web,
When you should be the one
Sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting on me...

CHORUS
Give me some satisfaction
Waiting on the universe to bring a little bit of traction
Just a tiny taste for now, doesn't have to be forever
Just something that is better than this...

Crossed off of your list
I'm not here to feed your ego and directly be dismissed
I've had it for now, this is me signing out
I'll emerge when ensured that I'm gonna get the treatment I deserve.

V2
I suppose I am somewhat to blame
For playing part in this game
With no winners or losers, just emotional abusers
And victims left in their wake
Oh, take, take, take...
With no intention of repairing what you break
With an unjustifiably inflated self-confidence.
What gives you the right to live your life at my expense?

Oh, not again...
I'm generating my self-worth from within
A step a should have taken many moons ago;
No one should set their sights so low, but now I know that...

CHORUS
I've earned some satisfaction
Waiting on the universe to bring a little bit of traction
Just a tiny taste for now, doesn't have to be forever
Just something that is better than this...

Crossed off of your list
I'm not here to feed your ego and directly be dismissed
I've had it for now, this is me signing out
I'll emerge when ensured that I'm gonna get the treatment I deserve.

BRIDGE
No more tallying up the times I've been shit out of luck...
No more passivity - I'm going to stand up for me...
No illusory, transient, little romance will do...
But I'll remain convinced that somewhere love does exist...
And when a brighter path reveals itself I'll seek...

CHORUS
Some satisfaction
Waiting on the universe to bring a little bit of traction
Just a tiny taste for now, doesn't have to be forever
Just something that is better than this...

Crossed off of your list
I'm not here to feed your ego and directly be dismissed
I've had it for now, this is me signing out
I'll emerge when ensured that I'm gonna get the treatment I deserve.
