Kye's Music & Lyrics: "Waste" by Smash Mouth (Astro Lounge, 1999)

 

 

Waste
Smash Mouth




~~*~~
 
 
 
I'm lookin' at my watch
At all the time that's been stolen
When I was carrying you
It seems I've tripped and I've fallen
Don't want no one to ache
Oh to be drunk and forgetful
To get out of this unscathed
Oh to be free and inhuman
Some may say I love to play
When the chance is there to take
I'm moppin' up the floor
From messy recipes of romance
I'm packin' up the pots
Too many cooks in the kitchen
Some may say I love to let a good thing go to waste
I let it go to waste
Let a good thing go to waste a good thing go to waste
Let a good thing go to waste a good thing go to waste
I'm lookin' at my watch
At all the time that's been stolen
When I was carrying you
Seems I've tripped and I've fallen

The lyrics are kind of hard to interpret.
Did he waste a good relationship?
Or did a bad relationship steal his time,
and others think he’s letting it go to waste by moving on?
Or is he letting the next opportunity
go to waste because the last one was a mess?

Regardless, wasted opportunities
and the savageness of time seem to be constants.

I guess I’ve always had the sense
that I pick the wrong things to carry,
and in so doing, drop the things I knew
I really should be carrying.
When it all goes wrong,
I say my time was stolen.
But really, I stole my own time.
I’m the one who locks myself in the freezer.
