I was painfully aware, I was painfully unprepared
So I did my best to make every thing right
And I spent some time alone on the surface of the sun
And I burned away to what I once was

All that time I have wasted
All that time I was wasted

It doesn't matter now 'cause I have seen the future
It's amazing, we will fall to our knees
Faster cars and stronger cures
You won't get wet when it's raining and no death penalty

In November of last year, I thought I could use a change
So I quit my job and got myself a home
But it turns out I was wrong, just another wasted year
And the knowledge that a duplex doesn't save

All that time I have wasted
All that time I was wasted

It doesn't matter now 'cause I have seen the future
It's amazing, we will fall to our knees
Faster cars and stronger cures
You won't get wet when it's raining and no death penalty
