Waiting On A War
I've been waiting on a war since I was young
Since I was a little boy with a toy gun
Never really wanted to be number one
Just wanted to love everyone
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than
Just waiting on a war?
Everyday waiting for the sky to fall
Big crash on a world that's so small
Just a boy with nowhere left to go
Fell in love with a voice on the radio
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than
Just waiting on a war?
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
I've been waiting on a war since I was young
Since I was a little boy with a toy gun
Is there more to this than just waiting on a war?
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Because I need more
Yeah, I need more
Than just waiting on a war

  • As someone who came of age during the cold war and had recurrent dreams of nuclear annihilation, as someone who has watched our nation wage various wars in the Middle East, as someone who has witnessed 9-11 and the horrifying escalation of terrorism, I feel this song in the literal sense. But I feel it in another sense too -- in that dark, frightened and frightening center of the soul where we all know that this life is temporary, that our loved ones are temporary, that the sky could indeed fall or the bottom drop out on our fragile sense of okayness at any moment, any day. That truth circles above us like a patient vulture, sometimes hidden in a flash of sunlight. I think the solution is not to linger in the shadow cast by that bird, but to marvel and appreciate that we get to see the sunlight at all. We can keep waiting on a war, or we can take a deep breath and be grateful for even small moments of peace.

  • I really cannot fathom enough how uplifting and brilliant this song is. Big favorite within the album (which I also adored) and certainly, a description of how many of us just want to make the best out there in the world, not being the best but not being the worst. We don't have to be the N.1 all the time to acknowledge the great worth we have in ourselves, everything we do, no matter how little can be, highlights who we are. Getting good grades, have a simple but sustainable job that can be our passion, and living off the well-being of what we do. Is there more to this than that? Yes there can be, but sometimes life can lead us into different ways that can be even better than what we had imagined, and it's always a matter of enjoying what we have, who we are, and the great people around us. Thank you so much Foos for this thoughtful masterpiece!

  • I love the song and it's great but the editing of the camerawork on this video in my opinion is awful, I wanna see what's going on. Fast editing and shaky cam gives me a headache, and it ruins the song and video for me.

  • Hi Mr. Dave Grohl, would it be possible if you, Krist, Pat, and Chad Channing would do a jam session, record it and put it on youtube as a one off thing? You on vocals and guitar, Krist on bass, Pat Smear on the 2nd guitar/backing vocals, and Chad on drums? You guys could perform songs from "Bleach and Incesticide". That would be so cool.. just the 4 of you in a garage somewhere, jamming, and recording it and putting it on youtube.

  • Foo Fighters es la sorprendente historia de cómo un batería se convirtió en una de las grandes estrellas del rock. Dave Grohl pasó de darle a las baquetas en Nirvana a cantar, tocar la guitarra y componer en una banda de rock con un directo demoledor, que lleva encima de los escenarios desde 1994. Por fin llega a nuestras manos su décimo álbum, "Medicine at Midnight", un disco de poco más de 35 minutos de duración y que ve la luz ahora después de varios retrasos a causa de la pandemia mundial provocada por la Covid-19. Es su álbum más pop, eficaz pero falto de pegada. Disco sin complicaciones, facilón, donde solo hay dos canciones: "Cloudspotter" y "Waiting of a War" que recuerdan mejores tiempos. Música independiente novedades.

The Covid war has impacted badly on us and FF has summed it up with this song. That last scream says it won't win, just waiting to shout my lungs out at a gig - come to the UK asap guys :)
