    \{Verse 2\} {Enters the band, play the intro} (1:44-)
    Wonder why I'm cold. How did I get this far?
    Had no money, had no car
    I pray the snow goes, be bad if it settles
    'Cos I follow my nose and the dried up rose petals
    Like the man says,
    Sure hope Moses knows his roses
    Or we'll all be waiting for the big one.

    \{Verse 3\} (3:03-)
    Once I was the credit to my credit card
    spent what I hadn't got, wasn't hard
    No trust in judgement no trust in money
    Someday I'll find myself like a bee finding honey, oh
    But in the meantime, ah
    I'm gonna have me some fun
    Waiting for the big one.
    \{Verse 4\} (3:50-)
    One too many, where ego I go too
    Looking for the real thing
    It don't come from what I do
    No real communication moves out of my face
    I'm beginning to think, yeah, I'm just out of place, a-ha
    Won't get in too deep,
    I want to get some sleep
    To be ready for the big one,
    To be ready for the big one
