Between Anto and Lizzie the balance was tipped between my vegetating away until the Swell maps royalties ran out and actually getting around to making a new record.

Does it mean that Anto and lizzie were ok with the "vegetating life" of Nikki until he did not receive Swell Maps royalties (Swell Maps was the first band of Nikki).
What does the bold sentence mean? Why my vegetating "away"?
