They say live
Live and learn
But you’d rather crash and burn
Than talk this talk
I wanna see you burn
While you walk the walk

I say man, Let it die
But you’d rather walk away
And pretend you’re straight (?)
But you walk away
And you know you’re crazy

All I know is you’re a time bomb baby
You’re ready to explode
All I know is that you’ve gotten crazy
You’re out of control

Oh no, here we go again
You take your drugs and you make your money
Your respect has been sold. Oh yeah

But you’d rather walk away
And pretend you’re straight (?)
But you walk away
And you know you’re crazy

All I know is you’re a time bomb baby
You’re ready to explode
Cuz all I know is that you’ve gotten crazy

And you know I’ll never find the time of day
To ever find the right words to say
But you’ve gotten so caught up in the mess you’ve made

All I know is you’re a time bomb baby
You’re ready to explode
All I know is that you’ve gotten crazy
You’re out of control, yeah
All I know is you’re a time bomb baby
You’re ready to….

    General CommentEasily one of my favorite songs on their new cd - along with Boys! Grab Your Guns, of course.

    To me, it's about someone who tests their limits too much and goes too far and doesn't know the meaning on the word "Stop". They just go on and go on and go on till their 'respect has been sold' and they're 'ready to explode' or, you know, have a breakdown.

    General Comment"they say live
    live and learn
    but youd rather burn
    and talk the talk
    i wanna see you burn while you walk the walk"

    i think is about a friend thats going way too far and thinking he's untouchable and can do whatever he wants. but the writer of the song knows hes out of control and wants the person to realize it.

    General CommentI think that the song is about someone maybe that the speaker knows, maybe used to be good friends with but grew appart. And so he just sits back and watches. So the person just goes off and keeps on doing things that are worse and worse. But also the person has a reputation of not being this mess. Because they are the line "Prentend your straight" makes it seem like its a person who people just don't really realize that they are messed up except for the speaker.
