Wasted time, wasted youth and debt The factory shut down a couple years after I left The people are flooding the streets This restless life is a deadly disease Living way past our means Supply and demand but it's not what we need But we want it, yeah we need it People want what they can't get That's the problem, the imbalance That's the part that makes me sick But we want it, yeah we need it People want what they can't get So we stand up and shake our fists And show them that we give a shit Every single day is goddamn strange (but it stays the same) I don't want to waste my heart On something I can't change Reliving our past mistakes Over again until civility breaks Living way past our means Supply and demand the American Dream But we want it, yeah we need it People want what they can't get That's the problem, the imbalance That's the part that makes me sick But we want it, yeah we need it People want what they can't get So we stand up and shake our fists And show them that we give a shit

Freedom 01:49
You better shut your mouth if they don’t like what you say you better watch your back if you’re gonna do things your own way you wanna know what it’s like to be free and not just one of the pack you wanna know what it’s like to be free somethings you can’t take back will you put up a fight? or will you do what youre told? will you give in and compromise? or will you break the mold? some things you can’t take back

you got me i could never fall in love with you never told no, never alone save your breath
4.
Wide Awake 02:13
i can’t ever get to sleep my head is spinning with the world falling apart all around me i close my eyes so i can breathe but it does nothing to relieve the stress that’s crawling up inside me i’m wide awake, no i can’t sleep i’m sick of having terrors in my dreams one day we’ll wake up from these lives we lead into the mass delusion we all seek i can’t sleep
5.
Out Of Touch 02:38
just like that i was out of sight, i was out of mind you were out of touch, you were out of time to salvage what was left, the remnants of a wreck a clear lack of respect of any kind i was missing heart, you were missing spine i was a bit too much, you were unrefined if i clean up my act, would you overreact? would you still have my back, partner in crime? when you don’t stand next to me, i feel like i could fall you make me want to disappear, with my back against the wall you had an axe, all i had was teeth to grind and it made sense to be sick to death of the ties that bind further with every step wondering what’s next but i’ll never forget that friend of mine
6.
Remember 03:14
we live where no one goes, everyone is always cold around here nothing grows and we reap what we sow you’ll never walk alone you’ll always make it home we know what no one knows, we see what no one shows everything here is always closed, we walk against the wind that blows
7.
walking through this graveyard to catch a glimpse of you but i can never find your ghost, just a dead bird or two prowling rows of tombstones, contemplating sleep walking through this graveyard to see what i can keep well i got scores of silk bouquets and a dusty oujia board i’m doing what we never did, i went and got my future toLd silver lining caskets, reading epitaphs walking through the cemetery dressed in black walking through the graveyard, holding my sons hand and i just can’t seem to explain what we both don’t understand i’ve been treading lightly on dirt that’s freshly dug walking through the cemetery without love
8.
Overworked 03:36
we punch the clock at the start of the day, does anyone know why? i try my best to make some sense of it all and the ladders that we climb does it matter at the end of the day or are we just wasting time? a generation is going down the drain, an axis in decline it’s hard to admit we’re getting old that voice in the back of your head that tells you that i told you so my brain is fried and my body is spent, i’m fine i think i’m overworked today in the middle of a crisis age, it’s fine i think i’m overworked today every day is an uphill battle, a scam that’s so obscene from the pages of a high school textbook, the history’s wiped clean they wear us out and they beat us down, they’ve tortured us and still we hate each other and ouRselves with the system that they’ve built and now we take it back the shadows that they cast we gotta do something because time goes by so fast
9.
i breathe deep, the stars die beneath me, my heart lies a deep sea, the great vast you and i will see the day that this will come to pass it takes me away from here and brings me back to you take what you want from me and bring me down to you one last breath, the dam breaks the dark depths, the final act takes shape the clocks stop, the time flies you and i will see the day where we won’t have to lie
10.
i need a new direction towards the setting sun it’s time to face my demons before the day is done i never thought about it, a catalyst for change i always thought that i’d drift away never make it to the other page rerun these old regrets like a film inside my head subdued, emotionless, a chapter left unread one day we’ll all stop drifting but the feeling’s never gonna be the same one day we’ll all stop drifting but our hearts will have a different thing to say it’s a simple distraction, something i can’t touch tired of living in an altered state because i don’t even like it that much rerun these past mistakes like a film inside my head subdued, emotionless, a chapter left unread
11.
you’re a joke, it’s sad but true i hate to say you’re nothing to me your reflection is just a shadow of youth a derision of what you used to be you lost your cool and you opened your mouth when you should’ve kept it shut you’ve lost your mind and your out of touch now your time is up you’re a fuck, i hope you choke your throat closes, you turn blue so fucking die with a hole in your head and every word is true
12.
if we keep traveling west we could live forever If we give it our best we could keep it together Won’t be seeing you again And I’ll be missing you my friend Won’t be seeing you again The beginning of the end If we never look back we will never get old And we never forget that we won’t do what we’re told Won’t be seeing you again And ill be missing you my friend Won’t be seeing you again but I’ll be listening

about

The Raging Nathans are back with a brand new LP less than a year after their last full length album and they have stepped it up in every way. “Waste My Heart” is their 4th studio album and it sees a major development in the bands songwriting. The ability to write 1 minute and 30 second punk rock rippers with anthemic choruses is now highlighted by their penchant for writing slightly more complex songs that blend intricate guitar work with the honest and introspective lyrics New themes collide with familiar ones including poverty, politics, love and hate. The drumming is tight, the bass is always in your face, the music is relatable, and clearly having a solid line up for several years has done the band good. Drawing on influences from everyone from The Buzzcocks to H20, the evolution of The Raging Nathans is on full display on this record. The collaborative efforts really shine on “Waste My Heart”. This album proves their importance as a band to their peers and to themselves every step of the way. They are prolific, unapologetic and “Waste My Heart” cements their legacy in stone as the worlds last great punk band. Every record they have released topped the one before it and “Waste My Heart” is no exception. The record was recorded by Luke McNeil (The Copyrights, Hospital Job) and was mastered by Stephen Egerton (ALL, Descendents). FFO: early Propagandhi, Bad Religion, The Ramones
