"The Waste Land" is the eleventh track on Everything Will Be Alright in the End. It is the first part of "The Futurescope Trilogy". The song, like "Return to Ithaka", is an instrumental. In December 2017, an early version of the song was leaked, along with the rest of the album. A clip from an in-progress version of the song was first previewed on May 28, 2014, in a teaser video.

The song's title is derived from the 1922 T.S. Eliot poem of the same name. The album's liner notes accompany the song's title only with the phrase "lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate", a line from Dante's Divine Comedy[1], which translates to "abandon all hope, ye who enter". "The Waste Land" is grouped under the category of "The Panopticon Artist", one of EWBAITE's three explicit thematic groupings.
