In my perfect isolation
I can stay here for awhile
Antidotes and revelations
Just extend my own exile

Wasting away
The world’s right in front of me
Funny you should say
That it’s all in my head
Wasting away
We’re hitting rock bottom
And going down in flames
Well it’s not that bad

With my lack of observation
I can stay in here for days
Could you find my motivation
I can’t see it through this haze

Wasting away
The world’s right in front of me
Funny you should say
That it’s all in my head
Wasting away
We’re hitting rock bottom
And going down in flames
Well it’s not that bad

Wishing away
The world’s right in front of me
Call me anyway
Cause it’s all in my head
Wasting away
We’re hitting rock bottom
And going down in flames
Well it’s not that bad

Wasting all my days
What would Ivan say
Wasting all my days
What would Ivan say

Wasting away
We’re hitting rock bottom
Call me anyway
Cause I got two friends
Wasting away
We’re going down together
And all in all it’s not so bad
All in all it’s not so bad

It’s hard to know
Where to start and where to go
I will never say these words again

    General CommentI am not a big fan of this song, but I may be able to answer who Ivan is. Ok, I think this song is about the movie "The Machinist" staring Christian Bale, which is a fantastic movie. The reason I believe this is ,if you've seen or know anything about this movie you know, that Christian Bale's character is completely wasting away, no food, no sleep. Someone keeps leaving him messages in his apartment, and he sees someone at work no one else seems to see (Ivan). Everyone keeps telling him he is crazy, but he believes what he sees. I don't want to ruin the movie for everyone who hasn't seen it, so go rent it or buy it, just see it and see if this song doesn't seem like it is about that movie.
