"Waiting To Die" as written by Henry Binns, Sam Hardaker and Sia Kate I. Furler....
It's just a day like any other day
A beautiful day for an accident, let's say
Yes it's just a day, like any other day
Just one step closer to the end of the buffet
La la la la la la
La la la la, 'cause we're waiting to die

Now it's a good time for a tasty glass of wine
Let's not burden our minds with carbon dioxide
And everyone hurry, don't sit and abide
Yes, everyone stand up, we're running out of time
La la la la la la
La la la la, 'cause we're waiting here to die

Look what a terrible mess that we've made
The sun beats us down as we search for the shade
And, yes, it is true, death is everyone's fate
But we've made it this far, it's time to celebrate
La la la la la
La la la la, 'cause we're waiting here to die
La la la la la
La la la la, 'cause we're waiting here to die

    General CommentOne of my favourites off this rather odd album, sia's vocals are infallable as usual... the song seems to be either mocking the global warming situation or at least embracing it, with a defeatist attitude sown next to happy go lucky "la la la la la la" melodies.

    Maybe its not pessimism but freedom that drives this song, acknowledgement of one's own mortality and making the most of the time you have.

    General CommentThis is my favourite song on The Garden, it captures my feeilngs perfectly. It's like, why take life so seriously? Enjoy it, laugh at it and with it. Even the bad things are only taking you one step closer to the end of the buffet :)

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs ever...I believe it's about how screwed up the world is and how everyone dies at some point...this is also about not taking life seriously and just almost go with the flow...
