The Waiter (My Heart is Mud Reprise)

about

I covered this song, one of my favorites by kick ass Arizona duo Snailmate (snailmate.bandcamp.com) about always waaaaaaaaaaaaaiting.

lyrics

I know that you’ve been avoiding
taking responsibility for my choices
if you've got a problem, just voice it
I've got mouths to feed and holes to moisten
poison in the veins of the chose n one
sitting underneath of a frozen sun
when you cut your teeth on my bone, its no wonder
you're never going to touch your home soil again
living in turmoil and sin
spend an eternity toiling endlessly
spin your absurdities inside a centrifuge
extract the liquid, inject it in you
… what a rush!
eye to the sky till the sun combusts
all I ever wanted was someone to hug
tightly while my grave gets dug. Can you dig it?
Under the gun, above the shovel
under my tongue is a puzzle
there are no subtleties within the jungle
its chew or be swallowed, you chug or be guzzled
in love with an entity I can't define
with an injury as deep as mine
its only a matter of time before I go the way of the dinosaur

they call me the waiter
because I'm always waiting, baby
not because I'm a waiter

i never have to wonder "whats clever"
when I'm up under forever
I've got their tongue in my head, it just severs
i feel them eating out my dreams
reading how to be JUST LIKE ME
I tried to warn them
I tried to point them whence they came
the shit remained
since things ain't been the same
rendering every interaction strained
well consider it as awkward, strange
I hope you're prepared for detention in my brain
a boobie trap for every pleasure that I have abstained
a losing game historically, with not a dragon slain
it was a figment to begin with
its hard to follow when your perspective is doing mctwists
burned out and pissed at my own invention
converting every residence i visit to a pigpen
give me the definition of an instant
for instance, I'm known to give it up with no resistance
and though I have attempted to preempt it
I find that my foresight could use a prescription
for the sake of fecundity
i shun the sun and unplug the tv
I find myself wondering…
"what could they be doing?"
"what's taking them so long?!"

they call me the waiter
because I'm always waiting, baby
not because I'm a waiter
