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

(Wasted) I've wasted my time
(Wasted) I'm shooting a line
(Wasted) I'm stuck in a hole
(Wasted) I'm losing control

And 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 down here that are fit for a queen
I've seen things down here that should never be seen

(Wasted) I've wasted my money
(Wasted) I've wasted you honey
(Wasted) I'm out of my brain
(Wasted) I'm going insane

I'm running in thin air
There's nothingness everywhere
I've gotta get out
(Won't you help me?)
I've gotta get out
(Won't you help me?)
I've gotta get out, oh won't you help me get out?

I 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
Well now I'll be stuck in here til the misery ends

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