"Wasting Time" is a song by Thirsty Merc, released as their debut single in in 2003. It was featured on their debut EP, "First Work".

Music video

The music video uses the original version of the song. It begins with singer Rai Thistlethwayte walking towards the camera in a house singing the song. Through singing the song, he walks through the house and when the song reaches the chorus, he's cut to the band with guitar in hand and they begin playing all together. In sync with the muffled effect of the music, the video is distressed and aged until the first chorus. The video is filmed in a suburban area in Dubbo, where the band first formed.
