"Wasting Away" as written by and Matt Hollywood Anton Newcombe....
The kids today
They got nothing to say
They got nothing to say
Because they taught 'em that way
They wanna watch 'em grow old
Put them in their graves
'Till they're gone

They mess with their hearts
And they mess with their minds
And they plug up their ears
And then they make 'em go blind
Till they're walking the street
And they can't tell what time it is

You see them standing in line
You watch them going insane
Because they're wasting their time
While they're waiting in vain
This is the way it should be
You were born to be free
So why you wasting away
Why you wasting away

You see them standing in line
You watch them going insane
While they're wasting their time
'Cause they're waiting in vain
Is this the way it should be
You were born to be free
So why you wasting away
Why you wasting away

Teachers today
They got nothing to say
They got nothing to say
Because they taught 'em that way
They only do what they're told
So they can get their pay
And go home
They walk down the streets
With their hearts in their hands
And they grow up too fast
And then they can't understand
What it's like to be a woman
Or maybe a man

You see them standing in line
You watch them going insane
Because they're wasting their time
While they're waiting in vain
This is the way it should be
You were born to be free
So why you wasting away
Why you wasting away

You were born to be free

So why you wasting away
