Billy Talent - Time-Bomb Ticking Away Lyrics




Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb, nobody cares 'til it's too late
Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb, you better pray you're somewhere safe

Transfixed on a piss-yellow sky
Watch another tank of gasoline burn dry
Death stare from her cold dead eyes
As she's chopping up the carrots, sharpening the knives
Don't blink, keep your eyes on the prize
While you rip me into pieces, cut me down to size
Don't dare try to keep it inside
'Cause the only way to make us laugh is to make us cry!

Just when you thought you'd seen it all
A storm awaits behind the door
Disgruntled right down to the core
We still go on

Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb, nobody cares till it's too late
Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb, you better pray you're somewhere safe

Beat down like a slave to the grind
I got a rocket launcher going off inside my mind
Dark clouds bottled up inside
Every thought about the future leaves me terrified
I'm sick of the same old lines
Why don't you talk about your feelings? Who gives a shit about mine?
Death grips cut a thorn in my side
'Cause the only way to make us laugh is to make us cry!

Just when you thought you'd seen it all
A storm awaits behind the door
Disgruntled right down to the core
We still go on

Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb, nobody cares till it's too late
Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb, you better pray you're somewhere safe

Oh, we got a time-bomb ticking away inside
And the only way to make us laugh is to make us cry

Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb ticking away
Watching a time-bomb ticking away

You're watching a time-bomb ticking away inside
And the only way to make us laugh is to make us cry
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away inside
All they ever need's a little help but the world is blind
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away inside
And the only way to make us laugh is to make us cry

You're watching a time-bomb ticking away
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away (I won't spend another day)
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away (Locked up in a metal cage)
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away (This world is a better place)
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away (I won't spend another day)
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away (Locked up in a metal cage)
You're watching a time-bomb ticking away (This world is a better place)

  11. Gabriel den Ouden

    fucking amazing song

  12. Fernando Caro Márquez

    Great song! What the lyrics mean exactly?

    S501Airborne

    Fernando Caro Márquez, honestly I feel that it's about social problems and bullying that both is and isn't intentional. Listen to the song again and imagine yourself inside a somewhat neglected persons shoes

  13. Zuffin -

    I fucking love Billy Talent, I only just found out who they were the other day... I hope I see these guys live before they're too old 😄

    John Last

    Zuffin - you have been missing out lol

  14. TeoReviews

    The vocal line in the bridge caught me so off guard and is one of the coolest/sleakest vocal lines i've ever heard in my life.

  15. Doctor Devil Healing from Evil

    Left wing lose, Great wishes from Poland; )

  16. SHAVI XD

    perfect anime song for the parodies ;) and fan mades

  17. John Last

    what i wanna know is who are the 3 dumb fucks who disliked this

  18. John Last

    man this is the best album since their first!!! im blown away

  19. Gundam Tech

    As a Canadian, this song should be tributed to the US election 2016

    /:/:

    pukka5 Real original

    LiteFrost

    pukka5 I was at his concert and he brought that subject up before playing the song 😂

    Nolan Wood

    Gundam Tech and as an American I agree with that statement

    HunterJUMPER

    Gundam Tech assume it’s about environmental changes

  20. Duane Young

    BT don't need a comeback because they were never gone as far as I am concerned. Awesome lyric Vid!!

  21. TheSilent One

    best song lyrics ever

  22. Lahujasaurus

    Am I the only one who thinks of Billy Talent 2 when listening to the chorus?
    Specifically the chorus of Burn the Evidence.

  23. Jess Danielle

    I might be one of the only ones who prefers the music without his screaming. Like, don't get me wrong, I still ENJOY his scream-y songs but there's something more fun and heartfelt about songs that don't rely on it to convey feeling, in my opinion. Can't wait for the new stuff, BT!

  24. The Mellow Marshmallow

    This song reminds me of BT's first album, truly amazing

  25. 朱永強

    This song definitely has some Pezz elements sprinkled throughout it, love it!

    Sander van Otterdijk

    Lol, good old pezz

    James Shore

    +RenegadeFranchise Mine is absorbed. Best breakdown I've ever heard.

  26. Igor Kumarov

    2:25 <3

  27. Ne Nicul

    Shouldn't it be "I won't spend another day" at 2:56?

    Tomáš Pelc

    That would deffinitely make more sense.

  28. David Slachta

    I like this one very much :)

  29. juan carrillo

    nice video!

  30. Miguel _88

    Let's all be honest..we miss Ben's screams so much!! :'(
    The album is great but we miss the good old punkrock style of BT..

    Miguel _88

    +Sheriff V Half Past Dead from the japanese version seems most similar to the old BT albums! Don't get me wrong, the album is fuckin' great this guys put a lot of love and skill, its very well done and the artwork is top but we miss the energy of the old stuff..

    baylaust

    To be fair, I think Ben has become a far better singer ever since he gave up the screaming.

    James Shore

    +baylaust He hasn't given u
    it up, the last time I saw them they did like 6 songs from BT 1. Bens also getting older and screaming like that does a number on your vocal chords after a while

    Rachel Birt

    I had heard in one of their interviews that Billy Talent 1-3 was considered by them as a "trilogy", and that albums after that were them exploring different styles/sounds.

    theo Last

    Ehhh. I love the older stuff but I really dig the new style. Honestly I prefer the new stuff.

  31. marcotalent Gaming

    Good Job and Thanks man :)!

  32. Coldy Tm

    Eh February Winds is still the best songs on here.

  33. Eren Aktas

    omg this song is amazing fast and a real energy song!

  34. Jacob Caruana

    the guy in the red cloak reminds me of palpatine/the emperor

    nathan lewis

    yea and hes like screw u anni u bitch youre gonna break

    Nicholas Smith

    No, he's more like. "Geh, do it."

    "do her."

  35. LegendOLD

    Is this an official Billy Talent lyric video? Or did you make it?

    Leonid Kurchitskiy
