Mother Mother - Waiting For The World To End Lyrics



Back in the head where I see red
Where the beast and the beauty coalesce
I give in to a morbid fantasy
Death to a billion families and me

Give me fire, burning hell
Throw it on my paper trail
And I’ll watch as all the numbers go
Up in a cloud of dark and dirty smoke

Ya I’m just waiting for the end of the world
End of the whole wide world
End of the whole world
Waiting for the world to end

Everybody come with me
Let’s throw ourselves off Hubbard’s peak
And we’ll tumble down the mountainside
Into the mouth of all our great divides

Ya I’m just waiting for the end of the world
End of the whole wide world
End of the whole world
Waiting for the world to end

Don’t you find…can take such a long time my friend
Don’t you find…can take such a long time my friend
Don’t you find that it can take such a long time my friend
I said don’t you find that it can take just such a long time my friend

Waiting for the world to end?
I’m still waiting for the world to end

    I feel like I’m just kinda waiting to die, I have goals yeah, but I’m just existing now. And not even the general feeling ok kinda existence, just a I’m angry and sad and I don’t know to put my feelings kinda existence. I kinda just want to destroy everything, mostly myself, I don’t know where these emotions came from and why they’re so freakin strong. My dad gets to express his anger but if I exhibit any negative emotion they’ll question it. I just wanna be left alone. Like can’t I just cry??? I notice now I feel more empty at home than when I’m at school. My home life is actually pretty good, it’s just idk. I can’t release my feelings anywhere, I tried to write this two times already and it reset so thx for just reading this vent. I hope you’re doing ok wherever you are and stay hydrated. Life can be freakin cool. I mean cats exist and if you don’t like cats, every other creature is quite cute as well. Especially Lizards. They’re adorable

    Apart from the good home life I relate to this so much like my home life isn't horrible but it isn't great either I'm sure ur probably sick of hearing this I am as well but I'm sure we can get through this we've lasted this long

    Hailley Thien

    @lilcoffeebean Thx and I hope you may find peace no matter whatever situation you end up in

    Akeptic

    @Hailley Thien the songs are just meant to vibe with, don't get caught up in the small stuff too much just make friends and keep yourself occupied.

  6. Hailley Thien

    This is a terribly good song reminding me of terrible feelings, but kinda helping me

  7. Wake me Up inside

    Idk why but this song makes me feel extremely calm

  8. UwUgang

    this song was made in 2012 when every one thought the world was going to end

  9. Human With Pinniped Qualities

    Sounds like something a depressed Crowley would listen to.

    magicat :3

    Good omens? Or supernatural.

    Human With Pinniped Qualities

    @magicat :3 I was thinking Good Omens!

    magicat :3

    @Human With Pinniped Qualities nice

  10. Lali Bird

    I would listen to Mother Mother often while I painted. At one point, recently, I forgot about the band, but now that I re-visited the "The Sticks" album, I suddenly feel my artistic creativity flow.. **sigh**

  11. an actual bird

    Why so underrated?

  12. Peregrine Mendicant

    whenever i hear of this song, i can only think of the holocaust because of lines
    ”Back in the head where I see red
    Where the beast and the beauty coalesce
    I give in to a morbid fantasy
    Death to a billion families and me
    Give me fire, burning hell
    Throw it on my paper trail
    And I’ll watch as all the numbers go
    Up in a cloud of dark and dirty smoke“

    the fourth musketeer

    I never thought of it that way....

  13. Gibby The Alien

    this sums up my thoughts in a nutshell

  14. MemeChild

    Holy hell i was not ready for the last minuet of this song

  15. Göksu Ogan

    This song reminds me of Little Pistol, especially the beginning...

    Tu Friend Murdii

    Göksu Ogan Yeah, but I think I hear legs away in the beginning?

    Göksu Ogan

    Now that you said it, it does kinda sound like Legs Away.

  16. CrazyFantasyCat

  20. art who_

    Back in the head where I see red
    Where the beast and the beauty coalesce
    I give in to a morbid fantasy
    Death to a billion families and me
    Give me fire, burning hell
    Throw it on my paper trail
    And I’ll watch as all the numbers go
    Up in a cloud of dark and dirty smoke
    Ya I’m just waiting for the end of the world
    End of the whole wide world
    End of the whole world
    Waiting for the world to end
    Everybody come with me
    Let’s throw ourselves off Hubbard’s peak
    And we’ll tumble down the mountainside
    Into the mouth of all our great divides
    Ya I’m just waiting for the end of the world
    End of the whole wide world
    End of the whole world
    Waiting for the world to end
    Don’t you find can take such a long time my friend
    Don’t you find can take such a long time my friend
    Don’t you find that it can take such a long time my friend
    I said don’t you find that it can take just such a long time my friend
    Waiting for the world to end?
    I’m still waiting for the world to end

  21. Ryo Asuka

    This should have been added in the Life is strange Soundtrack

  22. Avitus Xenoi

    Wow, just awesome. Sneaky and unpredictable, poetic and full of motion. New music score, thank you!

  23. Corey Kuefler - ter Weeme

    Trump will end the world. ugh

    Queen Rosecat :3

    Please do not ruin this song by mentioning politics. We are all aware electing him was a huge mistake, but there's no reason to bring it up.

    Cat Attack

    We've got a long time until the world ends. You have no idea who or what is coming in next. He's nothing compared to what can happen in the world.

    UwUgang

    i mean your not wrong

    hailee-bear-artist

    @SlothBroth Thank you!

    Wake me Up inside

    Cat Attack mass extinction is normal

  24. Space Dandy

    Isn't the world end yet?

  25. Arianna B.

    I love the very last part. I look forward to it every time I play the song.

  26. JohnLoves_Wolves

  27. Lawrence Ferguson

    Wow sums it up wow

  28. Rookie141

    i love this song, it's just so calm and i love her voice, but on the other hand... this is fucking creepy with those noises...

    Antlerrs

    He could do quite a lot of pitches or so I hve heard in his songs ! That's very cool

    Milo

    Actually it's a Woman and a Man singing...so what you said makes sence,

    Rookie141

    @Mary Universe
    oh

    Milo

    @Rookie Bro yeah...

    Queen Rosecat :3

    No need to fear, from what i can hear out the noises are just violins and violas being played horribly.

  29. Tom Bombadil

    A tree falling in the woods with no one to hear does make a sound. Just as my  thoughts are still thoughts even if I don't remember them.
    Do my thoughts exist if no one else can hear them or see them?
    Does the universe as you know it exist, if you're the only thing that knows it as you do?
    We are the tree falling, without an ear to hear.

    gale

    doesn't everything exist without us hearing it, or seeing it or being aware of it? most of the technology of our existence is fueled by past imagination. so, what doesn't make a sound? what doesn't exist? truly, everything is the tree that falls. everything is.

    Just a normal dog

    Your thinking was so deep it slipped from my comprehension

    Night Of Wishes

    I know this is pretty deep, but like, I does make a sound. And I know that's not other point of the statement, it's supposed to be like how you stated it, but some people really be out here taking it too literally.
