"Click Click Boom" as written by Joseph Scott Sappington, Christopher Jon Dabaldo, Wayne A. Swinny, David A. Novotny, Paul Allen Crosby and Bob Marlette....
C'mon c'mon, c'mon c'mon
On those Saturdays when kids go out and play,
Yo I was up in my room I let the stereo blaze,
Wasn't faded, not jaded
Just a kid with a pad and pen and a big imagination.
All this, I seek,
I find I push the envelope to the line,
Make it, break it, take it
Until I'm overrated.

Click, click boom.
I'm coming down on the stereo,
Hear me on the radio,
Click, click boom.
I'm coming down with the new style and you know it's buck wild.
Click, click boom
I'm on the radio station touring round the nation,
Leaving the scene in devastation.

I can see it in my mind,
I can see it in their eyes.
It's close enough to touch it now,
But far away enough to die.

What the hell is wrong with me?
My mom and dad weren't perfect,
But still you don't hear no cryin' ass bitchin' from me,
Like there seems to be on everybody's CD
So just sit back and relax and let me have your head for a minute,
I can show you something in it,
That has yet to be presented,
Oh yeah!

Click, click boom.
I'm coming down on the stereo,
Hear me on the radio,
Click, click boom.
I'm coming down with the new style and you know it's buck wild.
Click, click boom
I'm on the radio station touring round the nation,
Leaving the scene in devastation.

Why have I clouded up my mind,
Why's my mother always right,
And will I make it to the end?
Or will I crawl away and die?

Click, click, boom.
Click, click boom.
Click, click boom.
Click, click boom.

On those Saturday when kids go out and play yo I was up in my room
I let the stereo blaze on Saturdays
When kids go out and play, I was up in my room
I let the stereo blaze
It's all inside of me
It's all inside of me
It's all inside of me
It's all inside of my head.
It's all inside of me
It's coming over me.
It's all inside of me
It's all inside my head, yeah!
Click, click boom
I'm coming down on the stereo hear me on the radio.
Click click boom
I'm comin' down with the new style you know it's buck wild.
Everybody, everybody come on (C'mon, c'mon)
Everybody come on (C'mon, c'mon)
Click click boom
C'mon, c'mon, everybody c'mon, click click boom
Click click boom!

    General CommentI originally thought click, click, BOOM was symbolizing a gun.
    Then I heard the pen metaphor, and I must say, I love it.
    But I have my own theory about the song that maybe click click BOOM is a double meaning for both the pen and a gun.

    As a pen, click click BOOM does stand for writing those lyrics.
    As a gun, click click BOOM stands for his lyrics being his weapon for leaving the [radio] scene in devastation.

    He doesn't like the other bands and the complaining on their CDs about their troubles and he wants to bring new music in to get rid of all this crap. He says he will do this with his songs and his lyrics (click click BOOM: pen) as his weapon (click click BOOM: gun) to come out on top.

    I hope that makes sense, I had trouble writing it. I'm interested to know if anyone can see it like I do from this interpretation.

    General Commenti think the song's about writing lyrics, because he was up in his room with "a pad and a pen and a big imagination" and the click click is the pen clicking and the boom is the result. i'm probley wrong, but o well

    General CommentYeah, as well as the gun... If you go back to the pen...

    The little "click"s of the pen and the big "BOOM" of the music he creates. Love music.

    General Commentits I was up in my room, i let the stereo blaze.

    and its also Will i make it?
    and In the end or will I crawl away and die.




    also i think this song is about him being different and i also agree "just a kid with a pad and a pen and a big imagination" means he was always writeing music or tryinh at least. and "click click boom" click click was him writeing them. then boom is when the song is finished.

    General CommentIt's my favorite song from Saliva!

    The song? Hmmm. He was probably in his room with his stereo blazing. He probably had a pad, pen, and a big imagination and began to jot down some lyrics. I also think that the "click, click" is from the pen and the boom is the result. (Great one there, erl81!)
