Oh no! Was it worth it?

Starting now I'm starting over,
I'm gonna sleep with the next person I meet
Starting now I'm starting over,
You swore together forever now you're telling lies
Well tell me your worst, they got no, they got no concept of time.

Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time bomb baby oh
Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time oh oh oh

Oh no! Was it worth it?

Was it worth what you did to big business?
Was it worth?
Was it worth?
What your friends, put up their noses.

So starting now I'm starting over (stop it)
Well tell the new wave kids their make-up kits can find me where
Self pity gets a breath of fresh air.

Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time bomb baby oh
Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time oh oh oh
You set the watch, you're just time
To wreck my life, to bring back what I'd left behind
Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time bomb baby
A time bomb baby, a time oh oh oh

Five years and you fell for a waiter
I'm sure he says, well he's an actor
You're acting like (you never tried, to take your life)
So starting now, I'm starting over
I'm throwing bottles, I'm, I'm taking showers
I'm going to sleep, I'm going to sleep

So starting now I'm starting over (stop it)
So starting now I'm starting over (stop it)
To play the game, get even, act my age.

Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time bomb baby oh
Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time oh oh oh
You set the watch, you're just in time
To wreck my life, to bring back what I'd left behind
Tick tock, you're not a clock.
You're a time bomb baby, a time bomb baby
A time bomb baby, a time oh oh oh

Oh no! Was it worth...
Was it worth what you did to your wrists?

    General Commenta catchy song about the oh so familiar cheating woman. she's unstable (what she does to her wrists) and unfaithful, therefore a timebomb to whoever she is close to...

    General Commentthe last line should actually read:

    "now you're tellin lies, well tell me your words, they've got no concept of time"

    General Commentyeah there are some weird things goin on in these lyrics

    the "worth what you did to your wrists" - should be..

    "Oh no, was it worth it?
    Was it worth what you did to big business?
    Was it worth what your friends
    put up their noses?"

    and the tan lines thing made me laugh. but yeah it's "now you're tellin' lies well..."

    anyways, i love the format. dog problems is a great cd.

    General CommentWell, this song touches on:

    Drug use
    "Was it worth what your friends
    put up their noses?"

    and Generally cheating. The singer is basically saying that he is moving on because she is a timebomb is going to explode again and again. She has before, judging from:
    "what you did to your wrists"

    Thats just my take
