Out in the cold like a bundle of coal
Little packets of darkness wanting to glow
Well, there's nobody home and there's a wreck in the yard
Well maybe they're coming back
If we wish really hard
If we wish real hard now

Won't somebody please come up with something
'Cause Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings
So everyone is gonna keep on waiting

Waiting for peace at the end of the street
Back behind our apartment and in passenger seats
Just a moment of bliss amid all of the waste
The despair and oblivion of our precarious race
It’s ours to face now

Won't somebody please come up with something
'Cause Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings
So everyone is gonna keep on waiting

Now, I know nothing lasts forever
So we might as well wish for a goddamn fix
Of this toxic changing weather

Now tell me
Won’t somebody please come up with something
'Cause Jesus just don’t seem to be impartially working
And all of the others can barely stay in the running
So everyone is still right here waiting

Won’t somebody please come up with something
Won’t somebody please come up with something
Won’t somebody please...

Won't somebody please come up with something
'Cause Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings
While everyone is right here waiting

Out in the cold like a bundle of coal
Little packets of darkness wanting to glow
Well, there's nobody home and there's a wreck in the yard
And maybe they're coming back
If we wish really hard
If we wish real hard now

Won't somebody please come up with something
'Cause Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings
But everyone is gonna keep on waiting

Waiting for peace at the end of our street
Back behind our apartments and in our passenger seats
Just a moment of bliss amid all of the waste
The despair and oblivion of our precarious race
It’s ours to face now

Won't somebody please come up with something
'Cause Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings
But everyone is still right here waiting

Now, I know nothing lasts forever
So we might as well wish for a goddamn fix
Of this toxic changing weather

Won’t somebody please come up with something
'Cause Jesus just don’t seem to be impartially working
And all of the others can barely stay in the running
But everyone is gonna keep on waiting

Won’t somebody please come up with something
Won’t somebody please come up with something
Won’t somebody please come up with something
Won’t somebody please come up with something
