"Wastin'" as written by and Colin Leo Thomas/o'malley Smith....
You live on the sunnyside
Where the stars don't shine
You're drunk and twisted
So fuckin' wasted
You're from the emerald Isle
You'd swear you swam the nile
I know you need your life
But it's a waste of time

After so many years
Of automatic jeers
And covering up of tears
With your synthetic cheer
You paved the boulevard
With good intentions
In your forever search
For bar extensions

If this is healthy
If this will save me
Bring me to safety
I'll start behavin'
I know you need your life
But it's a waste of time
Stop me wastin' away

And there's his trophy kept
A dusty cabinet
He'll raise a can to it
He won't let time forget
The ink surrounds the scars that
He's collected in bars
Time has let him forget
This man's a walking wreck

If this is healthy
If this will save me
Bring me to safety
I'll start behavin'
I know you see my life
As just a waste of time
Stop me wastin'

If this is healthy
If this will save me
Bring me to safety
I'll start behavin'
I know you need your life
But it's a waste of time
Stop me wastin' away

And on the walls inside
Pictures of all the lives
That have been pushed aside
A country's suicide
No one believes the smiles
You force on shopping aisles
Who knows what's on their files
From your nights on the tiles

And at the moment you fall through the door wasted
She's in her corner while you vomit on the pavement
Tonight the superstar's thrown his towel in
So what about his life? Alleged waste of time

If this is healthy
If this will save me
Bring me to safety
I'll start behavin'
I know you need your life
But it's a waste of time
Stop me wastin' away
