I was listening "In the End" by Linkin Park, and they sing "Watch the time go right out the window".

My question is: Is it literally outside the window or, in this context does it mean something else?

Maybe something like: right there, over there, or so fast.

Is it an idiom?

Something goes "out the window" when it is lost or disregarded. For instance

When he saw how it rained, his resolve to go for a walk went right out the window.

or

When they got into an argument, their agreement to be nicer to each other went right out the window.

To “go out the window” is an idiom for being discarded or lost, like something tossed or sucked out the open window of a moving vehicle.
