I don't wanna waste your time
I don't wanna waste your time

I just wanna say
I've got to say
We work hard, darlin'
We don't have no control
We're under control

I don't wanna give it your way
I don't wanna give it your way
I don't wanna give it to you, your way
I don't want to know

I don't wanna change your mind
I don't wanna change the world
I just wanna watch it go by
I just wanna watch you go by

We were young darlin
We don't have no control we're under control

I don't wanna give it your way
I don't wanna give it your way
I don't wanna give it to you, your way
I don't want to know

I don't wanna change your mind
I don't wanna waste your time
I just wanna know your alright
I've got to know your alright
You were young darlin'
For now it's not for long
Under control

    I believe he is directing this at the human race. "i dont wanna change the world, i just want to watch it go by" it seems that he discoverd something secret and tried to do something against it, but gave up and doesnt want to waste our time.

    Being in a relationship with a younger person and also feeling that you don't have control over your own life and how it's better off that although you still have feelings for each other it's better of to go your separate ways.
