THE NEXT BIG THING

we barely got out of that one
I tell you man it was rough
You know it cracked the foundation
But now enough is enough

Waiting on the next big thing
Waiting for the bell to ring

Waiting for the gate to swing
Waiting on the next big thing

Who sent the world spinning backwards?
Who's really calling the shots?
I can't believe what Iím seeing
It's bad comic book plots

Waiting on the next big thing
Waiting for the bell to ring
Waiting for the gate to swing
Waiting on the next big thing

It's coming
To be going
It's coming
To be gone

I wanna trust in the future
I want these habits to break
Somebody draw me a picture
Don't wanna make a mistake

Waiting on the next big thing
Waiting for the bell to ring
Waiting for the gate to swing
Waiting on the next big thing

My patron saint changed the channel
Left me here on my own
You know Iím bound for the trouble
Just can't resist the unknown

Waiting on the next big thing
Waiting for the bell to ring
Waiting for the gate to swing
Waiting on the next big thing

We barely got out of that one
I tell you girl it was rough
But when your love's on the line
Well you gotta hang tough

Waiting on the next big thing
Waiting for the bell to ring
Waiting for the gate to swing
Waiting on the next big thing
