Roaming 'round your house
Wasting your time
No obligation, just
Wasting your time
So why are you alone?
Wasting your time
When you could be with me
Wasting your time

Well, I'm a waste like you
With nothing else to do
May I waste your time, too?

Warding off regrets
Wasting your time
Smoking cigarettes
Wasting your time
I'm just a parasite
Wasting your time
Applying myself to
Wasting your time

Well, I'm a waste like you
With nothing else to do
May I waste your time, too?

So why are you alone?
Wasting your time
When you could be with me
Wasting your time

Well, I'm a waste like you
With nothing else to do
May I waste your time, too?
May I waste your time, too?
May I waste your time, too?
May I waste your time, too?
