On The Wing
This is the only known version.
Weeds grown Should have known On our own We wait Single file An empty smile And all the while We wait I hear the word is on the wing I don't believe in anything Cast aside This great divide With foolish pride We wait Off the trail We eat our tails Bound to fail And wait I hear the word is on the wing I don't believe in anything A chorus of voices rise to sing I don't believe in anything Used to Believe in you Yet all we do Is wait
