Enveloped in a mummy ribbon system
Blistering in a wishing well

from Aesop Rock – Big Bang Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The symbol of a “wishing well” is more literal one might think. He used “blistering” earlier on in the song (“the bride commence the blistering”) to represent a healing process. He also references his career as a musician throughout and the poverty experienced in having such an unsteady source of income, hence the wishing well also ties in with that — people come to a wishing well and throw in small amounts of money, representing his income. Despite that being a terrible situation he is “blistering” meaning he enjoys his career as a musician and it’s what heals him of his hurt from the “bitter aspects” of life.
