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

    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 :)
