It’s The Waiting That’s Killing Me
“It’s the Waiting that’s Killing Me” pretty much sums up the message of the song. It’s essentially about treading on and on in every day life and truly feeling like you’re making no progress. Not even just feeling that but literally having your life reflect back to you that truth. It’s about the same problems showing up again and again and the frustration of things not improving, despite tremendous efforts. The song also talks about past trauma and hardship and how that applies to present life. It explores it’s relevance to today and how to make sense and move on from such experiences. Essentially the song reaches no conclusion and remains in it’s asking state of “why” and “when” will things change for the better. It wraps up by basically saying, if things don’t change I’m going to lose my beans.
