Your children are shooting up society
'cause you made money making killing a commodity
at war on tv from a faraway field
a timebomb generation
the nation's fate is sealed


kill the stain inside our heads
tell the policeman to give up
we live in defiance of empty times
kill the stain inside our heads
apathy until we're dead
we live in defiance of empty times


No more empty times


Timebomb is the building tension
stretched across the globe
timebomb watch the media lying
'just another episode'
timebomb to transform awareness
in our hearts deep inside
from man to man to nation
end the fear and conquer pride


so what does it mean
to take their power and push it away
overcome this culture
and the lies they tell them everyday
find a voice for a better future
and a place for you and I
to face our fears and
fall down to rise back up

    General Commenta truely amazing song. these guys are highly intelligent and they write music about really important things, they dont whine like anti flag (i actually like anti flag). i gotta see theses guys in concert. the best line of this song is "Your children are shooting up society
    'cause you made money making killing a commodity " that is my opinion at least. check these guys out if you havent already. in my opinion they are the best band out right now and their lead singer has a very intriguing voice.

    General CommentPossibly my favorite song of all time. I have "in defiance of empty times" written across the back of my jacket.

    General Commentahh this is horrible stuff! the vocals are just screaming, and as for the instruments, it seems as though they are played with no coordination. this might be good to some of you, but it's not my type of music.
