I liked 'all that work and all that pain isn't worth a grain of sand'. Good lyrics all round. Enjoyed it when the drums kicked in and the lead guitar around 1.40. Sweet guitar at the end.

    - Matt Jones

Very catchy tune and strong lyrics that tell a story of struggle.

    - Sandi McMurphy

Nervous people close to tears
See their nest-eggs disappear
Gone in a single flash
How can this happen
All that effort
And all that pain
To make a livin'
Ain't worth a grain of sand
Or so it seems
So now they're holdin' their collective breath
Waitin' for
Waitin' For A Sign

Honest folks who followed rules
Find they're fightin'
Some clueless fools
Who seem to think their stuff
Is so much better
And if we spend just a trillion more
All our wounds will heal
All our souls will soar
We'll find utopia
A worker's heaven
But while they're pushing their collective dream
We'll be waitin' for
Waitin' For A Sign

Bureaucrats with tenure
And faceless czars
Think our treasure is their own
Party hacks with pensions
Live like commissars
Act like movie stars

Gettin' ready to begin
Gonna clean this house
Teach some discipline
Clear out the hallowed halls
Of all the takers
I'm no prophet, that's a fact
But I'm tired of waitin'
Think It's time to act
Like we own this place
'Cause that's the truth of it
Puttin' some faith in the common man
While we're waitin' for
Waitin' For A Sign
