Post Malone - Wasting Angels (with The Kid LAROI)

[Intro: Post Malone]
Mm-mm-mm-mm

[Chorus: Post Malone]
This is like a private plane up on my ring
This is like the first time I bought a chain
This is like when I was sane, before the fame
Uh-oh, uh-oh, this life is crazy
This is like another thing I can't explain
This is like the summer flame that got away
I won't let another angel go to waste
Uh-oh, uh-oh, this life is crazy
[Verse 1: Post Malone]
Oh, Vividus bed where I'm layin' my head (Ooh)
Devil on my back, so I sleep on my chest
Waitin' at the gate, how'd they get my address?
(How'd they get my address?)
On my last nerve whilе I'm rippin' cigarettes
It's a killer I know, it's a killеr I know
I just need a lil' somethin', get me through the day
Yeah, my mind is blank or I overthink
It's gettin' old, but it's nothin' new
I say your name when you're not around
When I'm drunk and my knees can't pick me up
Need to say your name when you're not around
When I'm drunk and my knees can't pick me up

[Chorus: Post Malone & The Kid LAROI]
This is like a private plane up on my ring (Woah)
This is like the first time I bought a chain (Woah)
This is like when I was sane, before the fame
Uh-oh, uh-oh, this life is crazy (Woah)
This is like another thing I can't explain (Oh)
This is like the summer flame that got away
I won't let another angel go to waste
Uh-oh, uh-oh, this life is crazy (Ooh)

[Verse 2: The Kid LAROI]
I blacked out, left a hundred missed calls on your phone
I mixed my drink with a couple of drugs
Spit in my face, now you hate that I'm gone, babe (Gone, gone)
You're doin' the most
I don't need somebody to be the one to keep me honest
I don't wanna know the truth, I can't fight if I'm alone
I need enemies (I do, I do)
You know how far that I will go (How far)
Every road takes its toll (Toll)
Before you leave, I'm gone, I'm gone (Gone)

This is like a private plane up on my ring (Ring)
This is like the first time I bought a chain (Ooh)
This is like when I was sane, before the fame
Uh-oh, uh-oh, this life is crazy
This is like another thing I can't explain (Oh, woah)
This is like the summer flame that got away
I won't let another angel go to waste
Uh-oh, uh-oh, this life is crazy

[Outro: Post Malone, The Kid LAROI, Both]
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now, if I never have (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
I should listen to you now, if I never have (Oh-oh, to you now)
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now, if I never have
(I should've listened, I should've listened)
I should listen to you now, if I never have
(I should've listened)
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now, if I never have
I should listen to you now

On “Wasting Angels,” both artists reflect on their life prior to fame and how surreal life currently is. Although it comes with its benefits, Austin and Charlton express the difficulties of managing fame and reputation with other life responsibilities. In its repetitive outro, they both share intent of becoming better, in hopes of improving their relationship with themselves and other people. Post talked about and explained the overall meaning in an Instagram Live: "This is a song about a celebration of life and a human spirit to be able to fight no matter what, just go with the punches and say that at the end of the day that life is fucking crazy. It’s a beautiful gift that we’ve all been given and it’s just reminiscent of listening when you should’ve listened and taking care of yourself. This song is featuring the beautiful soul, Kid LAROI, the most beautiful man, and I’m so grateful he was apart of this record."
