I get thin
When I'm in this place
I get tired
When the wheels need pace
Now I gotta wait until the slide comes
Gotta wait until the slide comes

Near to the moment when I should be clear
Oh how I waited for the clouds to break
Now I gotta wait until the slide comes
Gotta wait until the slide comes

Lifting the spell and the locks are off
Moving along in the sidewalks
Want to be there when the slide comes

Would you be near
If I changed my face
Reach for the ruler
When I'm in disgrace
Now I gotta rattle 'til the slide comes
I'm gonna yell 'til the slide comes
Near to me closer
As I run the race
Oh how I've waited for the clouds to break
Now I've gotta wait until the slide comes

Picking me up
When the stops on
Moving again
On the tightrope
