lyrics

I can't wait till the smoke clears
I can't wait till the reinforcements are here
I can't wait till the smoke clears

I can't wait for the dust to stop moving around
I can't wait for the merry-go-round to slow down
I can't wait till the smoke clears

While my plants die
My kids cry
And I sit by
Feeling sorry for my own self
And I'm the only one who can help
I need to do it for myself

I can't wait till I know that I know that I know
I can't wait till my stars are like ducks in a row
I can't wait till the smoke clears

While my plants die
My kids cry
And I sit by
Feeling sorry for my own self
And I'm the only one who can help
I need to do it for myself

Some people wait for the day their chance has passed 'em
Some people can't fix mistakes, and so they mask 'em
Some people carry the weight of too much askin'
Some people can't seem to take the thought of passin'
And I can't be one of them

I can't wait till the smoke clears
I can't wait till the reinforcements are here
I can't wait till the smoke clears

I can't wait for the storm cloud to rise
I can't wait for to see the whites of their eyes
I can't wait till the smoke clears
