Well I've been lying awake all night just thinking of you
But a bottle of whisky lies heavy, obstructing my view
I've got a bottle of pills to give me my thrills
And I know I'm leading a life that kills

Wasted - wasted my time
Wasted - I'm shooting a line
Wasted - I'm stuck in a hole
Wasted - I'm losing control

I've been meaning to call, I've been wanting to phone
You see I don't like the thought of leaving you here alone
Well I've seen things out here that are fit for a queen
I've seen things out here that should never be seen

Wasted - wasted my money
Wasted - wasted you honey
Wasted - I'm out of my brain
Wasted - I'm going insane

I'm running in thinning air
There's nothingness everywhere
I've gotta get out, oh won't you help me
I've gotta get out, oh won't you help me
I've gotta get out, oh won't you help me get out

Thought I saw you just the other day
But it couldn't be you 'cos you had nothing to say
'He's going away', they told all my friends
And now he's stuck in here till the misery ends

Wasted - wasted my time
Wasted - I'm shooting a line
Wasted - I'm out of my head
Wasted - I wish I was dead
