"The Boy Who Could Explode" as written by and Matthew Fredrick Robert Good....
He will waste this whole town
Wipe the knives and go to ground
An equal ride for the sheep that reign
For all their lies and all their games
I won't wait for you to break
More than one way to be okay

What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?

This my head and yours, just metaphors
I guess we'll always end up more
Beat to life in restraint
Hit by miles gone medicated

What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?

Go explode
What time is it that you're waiting for?
What time is it that you're waiting for?
Just go explode
What time is it that you're waiting for?
What time is it that you're waiting for?

We could waste this whole town
Wipe the knives and go to ground
This musical ride, these sheets of rain
For all their lies and all their games
Just being alive don't get you saved
If there's more than one way to be okay

What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
What are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?

Oh, what are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?
Oh, what are you thinking?
What are you thinking?

Go explode
What time is it that you're waiting for?
What time is it that you're waiting for?
Just go explode
What time is it that you're waiting for?
What time is it that you're waiting for?

    General CommentThis song is incredible...

    I think it's about someone who's had a shitty life and on the verge of like snapping and killing people or doing something stupid or something, and it's sung from the point of view of someone egging him on that knows he won't actually do it?

    but that could be way off

    General CommentI think it may refer to situations where everyone knows a situation sucks and complains about it and says they'll fight it but they don't. He urging people to start the revolution.

    General CommentIt's about Peter Petrelli losing his head. Maybe Sylar, too.
