lyrics

Well Wishers
featuring illGill
(J. Ward SOCAN, J. McDonald SOCAN, Gillian Anderson)

Some of us walked away tall, some of us crawled
I only wish the very best for everyone that was involved

I wish em well
I wish em well
I wish em well
from the bottom of my wishing well
I wish em well
I truly wish you well, I do
I wish you well
from the bottom of my wishing well

I've started to do the math, which as you know was never a strength of mine
but even I can start to see a pattern after a certain length of time
it's not all one big great design, but the tinkerings of
blind watchmakers with no sense of space and time

Moving forward by inertia, propelled by resentment
No purpose, disconnected
Assessing the merit of their narrative through comparative measures
Contestants with no essence

I've analyzed the short stories, the long cons, I've practiced how to
passively extract myself from strong arm tactics
Still can't stand poetry that lacks a formal structure
Still half-believe we're perfect for each other

Honestly, these narcissistic tendencies to meet my needs
By any means has got me feeling fatigued, to say the least
Now that empty pit, that cavity that can’t be filled
I craftily convert into capacity, and this is how

I wish em well
I wish em well
I wish em well
from the bottom of my wishing well
I wish em well
I truly wish you well, I do
I wish you well
from the bottom of my wishing well

Even if I don’t wanna, not fair, don’t feel it
I got it on repeat to myself like a mantra ‘til I mean it
Inspired by my breathing, I expel what I don’t need
I wish em well and watch em leave

I've started problem-solving, which I've always had a problem with
My double negative ain't nothing always but the struggle to be positive
I wish em well is the most I can muster straight faced
It's a damn shame, this hate-based campaign

I claim love, and that’s what I stand for
With my heart on my sleeve here, I got every hand up
Not because I know all the answers, but I do show all my work
There’s nothing left to prove, I self evaluate my worth.

I've learned from my mistakes, including my reluctance
to learn from my mistakes, headed for self-destruction.
The certain time it takes, plus diminishing of hurt and heightened stakes
The first of five stages, what's next? I guess

I wish em well
I wish em well
I wish em well
from the bottom of my wishing well
I wish em well
I truly wish you well, I do
I wish you well
from the bottom of my wishing well

Some of us walked away tall, some of us crawled
I only wish the very best for everyone that was involved

I’m a well-wisher, in that I don’t wish you any specific harm
