I suppose I'm naive
But I find it hard to believe
A person could make life so cheap

It's worth nothing today
Because you threw it away
Self-indulgence took you too deep

In a whole lot of nothing
You got up and went
Leaving behind all the people you spent

I guess they could call you a friend
You took them for a ride to the very end

What a waste
What a waste
What a waste of life
What a waste

So in the end you didn't have no friends
'Cause they sat and watched you die
A lot of bridges burned with no lessons learned
But plenty of reasons to cry

I suppose I'm naive
But I find it hard to believe
A person could make life so cheap

It's worth nothing today
'Cause you threw it away
Self-indulgence took you too deep

In a whole lot of nothing
You got up and went
Leaving behind all the people you spent

I guess they could call you a friend
You took them for a ride to the very end

What a waste
What a waste
What a waste of life
What a waste

No communication
Complete separation
No talk, no chance to help
I am guilty

I failed you
As a person who should have cared
I shut my mouth
Because I was scared

I hid my feelings
When they should've been bared
I turned you off
And I, I should have cared
