lyrics

You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall
You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall

I'm starting to wonder where my taxes go
(so slow, so slow)
This giant system it moves so slow
Why do I put my trust in government
When government doesn't trust me

You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall
You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall

I could be sleeping up under a tree
(nap nap, nap nap)
Or having fun dancing under the sun
But since I put my trust in government
I've been sitting here for hours and hours

Well your trust in government was your first mistake
Ya shoulda known they're all a bunch of fakes
They're crooks, they're criminals, they're all corrupt
come on man, don't you know what's up?

I called the president to see if he could make a change
(yes we can, yes we can)
But all I got was
-Please remain on hold, the next available operator will be right with you-
You could put your trust in government but government
They don't trust you

You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall
You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall

It goes tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock
It goes tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock
