"Wasted" as written by Andy Kubiszewski, Christopher Hall, James Eric Sellers and Walter Flakus....
I have spent
My life
Running from the emptyness
That haunts me

I have spent
My whole life
Trying to fuck
The loneliness away

And I die
Inside
When I think of all the people
I have damaged

And I'm tired
I'm so tired
And there's no one else
Except myself to blame

(CHORUS)
My life's been wasted
Everything is gone
My life's been wasted
And I am all alone
My life's been wasted
There is no one else
My life's been wasted
It's time I face myself

I've spent
My life
Trapped inside
A cycle of self destruction

And I've spent
My whole life
Trying to numb
The pain inside my soul

And you know
I cry
When I realized
I fought this war with no one

I'm tired
I'm so fucking tired
Gotta find a way
To keep myself alive

(CHORUS)
My life's been wasted
Everything is gone
My life's been wasted
And I am all alone
My life's been wasted
There is no one else
My life's been wasted
It's time I face myself

(BRIDGE)
When I reach the end
Will anything I've done
Mean anything?
(x2)

Will anything I've done mean anything? (x3)

(CHORUS)
My life's been wasted
Everything is gone
My life's been wasted
And I am all alone
My life's been wasted
There is no one else
My life's been wasted
It's time I face myself

    General CommentThis song is just truly beautiful. It's what I listen to when I am feeling like a waste of human flesh. I especially like the line "I've spent my life running from the emptiness that haunts me." The emptiness is something that is very hard to get over. The song itself is pretty self-explanatory. It's about someone who is on the verge of a mental breakdown, reflecting upon his life. He feels like everything has been wasted...

    General CommentI think this song is about AIDS. He says that he's spent his whole life trying to fuck the loneliness away... he's engaged in sexual activity with tons of random people because he feels he is lonely inside and that is the only way to fill the void. But somewhere along the lines, he contracts HIV, and continues to be sexually active, spreading the virus. This is what I think the line "think of all the people that i've damaged" is in regards to.
    After all this, he never ends up filling the void, and only makes his and other peoples' lives worse. Therefore his life has been wasted.

    That's my take on the song.
