Track Name: Waiting For Magic Mountain
now I lift my body up
out of the water, out of the waste
now the world has ended
and I don't recognize the place
oceans washing over me
diffusing under my fingernails
the color of fading nations
the smell inside the belly of the whale

hello, friends and beneficiaries
I'm greeting you from the wrong side of yesterday
I've been up for 36 hours and
everything is VHS fast-forwarding
I'm a mess and I'm falling apart
I'm falling out with my whole family
now all my hair is falling out
I'm tired but I've forgotten how to sleep

now this city is completely over
now this city is completely over me
I'm counting credits toward my major
what the fuck do I do with bachelor's degree?
how about heroin?
how about living off tips and the minimum wage?
how about everything's a joke but I missed the set up
with every tomorrow
it's all gonna be the same

we're waiting, we're still waiting
passing out to a one-off beat
