Song Meaning
Verse 1
We were waiting for peter, the dealer,
He comes in the evening when we're fussing in bed.
He says, "good morning, here's your breakfast",
And give us plates of stone.
Take a pinta blood each from us to give to the poor.
Verse 2
We count the windows in the cities and tell each other,
Yes, life is a helluva lot of waiting time.
Verse 3
Our minds are objects of constipation,
Our bodies are subject to dissipation.
So keep your intentions in a clear bottle
And leave it in the cupboard when you're out.
Verse 4
We were waiting for peter, the wheeler,
He comes in the morning when we're fast asleep.
Gives us a trip that's spending hundred years in a day,
And takes a bone each from us to give to the dogs.
Verse 5
We count the wrinkles on the globe and tell each other,
Yes, life is a helluva lot of waiting time.
Verse 6
Our minds are objects of constipation,
Our bodies are subject to dissipation.
So keep your intentions in a clear bottle
And leave it on the shelf when you rap.
Verse 7
We were waiting for peter, the blower,
He comes in when we're fixing snow on rock.
Gives us orange juice laced with sunshine and spring,
And takes a heart each from us to give to the world.
Verse 8
We count the memories that are lost and tell each other,
Yes, life is a helluva lot of waiting time.
Verse 9
Our minds are objects of constipation,
Our bodies are subject to dissipation.
So keep your intentions in a clear bottle
Throw it in the ocean when you go.
Verse 10
We were waiting for peter, the weaver,
He comes in a flash when we're wide awake.
Says the world can't give us answers
'Cause it's stuttering in it's mind.
Takes a head each off us to give us some peace.
Verse 11
We count the lights in the universe and tell each other,
Yes, life is a helluva lot of waiting time.
