Everybody knows he is a ticking time bomb
Oh, everybody knows that he's a ticking time bomb
Oh, a ticking time bomb

He'd started beating off in public
Things had gotten dark
He bought a vat of neon face paint
And went to the trailer park
Said "Nothing works out good for me
Nothing works out good for me
Nothing works out good for me anymore"

And everybody knows he is a ticking time bomb
Oh, everybody knows he is a ticking time bomb
But he's so strange and pretty
Though his hair-do is a little silly
Oh everybody knows he is a ticking time bomb
Oh a ticking time bomb

He'd started buying guns in Phoenix
Oh lord, thoughts becoming stranger
He bought a tub of ammunition
And dreamt of a savior
Said "Nothing works out good for me
Nothing works out good for me
Nothing works out good for me anymore"

Everybody knows he is a ticking time bomb
Oh mama get him off my lawn, he's a ticking time bomb
But he's so sharp and witty
But his thoughts get a little shitty
Oh everybody knows he is a ticking time bomb
Oh a ticking time bomb

He'd started beating off in public
Things had gotten dark
