"Out Of Time Man" as written by Thomas Arroyos, Jose Manuel Chao, Jacques Clayeux, Olivier Dahan, Philippe Teboul, Santiago Casariego, Antoine Chao, Thomas Darnal and Daniel Jamet....
I'm walkin' out for love
I'm walkin' bad really down
Like a cool breeze
I'm gonna be late again
Driver, wait for me please!
I'm runnin' all in vain
Tryin' to catch
This fuckin' train
Time don't fool me no more
And I throw my watch to the floor
It's so lazy
Time don't do it again
Now I'm stressed and strained
With anger and pain
In the subway train

Now it's half past two
Long gone the rendezvous
Now it's half past three
Time made a foul out of me
Now it's half past four
Oh baby can't you see
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy
I think it's nine
When clock says ten
This girl wouldn't wait
For the out of time
Out of time man

Time don't fool me no more
And I throw my watch to the floor
It's so lazy
Time don't do it again
Now I'm stressed and strained
With anger and pain
In the subway train

Now it's half past two
Long gone the rendezvous
Now it's half past three
Time made a foul out of me
Now it's half past four
Oh baby can't you see
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy
I think it's nine
When clock says ten
This girl wouldn't wait
For the out of time
Out of time man

Now it's half past two
Long gone the rendezvous
Now it's half past three
Time made a foul out of me
Now it's half past four
Oh baby can't you see
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy

Now it's half past two
Long gone the rendezvous
Now it's half past three
Time made a foul out of me
Now it's half past four
Oh baby can't you see
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy

Now it's half past two
Long gone the rendezvous
Now it's half past three
Time made a foul out of me
Now it's half past four
Oh baby can't you see
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy

Now it's half past two
Long gone the rendezvous
Now it's half past three
Time made a foul out of me
Now it's half past four
Oh baby can't you see
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy

Now it's half past two
Long gone the rendezvous
Now it's half past three
Time made a foul out of me
Now it's half past four
Oh baby can't you see
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy

    My InterpretationIt's probably just about missing a date, but as depression has turned me into a sad egocentric pile of misery, to me it's about someone who has lived a great deal of his life without any sense of direction. As the years pass, he starts getting more and more uncomfortable with the emptiness he's experiencing and seeks for something to hold onto (sex, drugs, whatever) to make him feel good... Ultimately, he finds that this does not kill the emptiness but he realizes it's too late to make a change. He's too depressed and empty to gather up the (emotional) strength to make a choice and actually lives in the past while the world around him has moved on.

    A timing tragedy.

    General CommentI love this song, one of the best of Mano Negra imho, more Manu Chao style than Mano Negra actually. I think it's about knowing the time getting him stressed, so he lives without it (I throw my watch to the floor), but that gets him into other trouble (missing the rendez-vous with the girl).
