Race of doom
Is it on
Is it off
Reply

It's a matter of time
It's a matter of luck
It's a factor of chance
'Til i self-destruct
You fire at random
I'm under attack
Strapped in and freewheeling
Flying off the track

I want to be your time bomb
Let me be your time bomb baby
I want to be your time bomb
Please let me be your time bomb baby
Everywhere there is danger

Absolutely for real
Subliminal feelings
Too strong to conceal
Unscramble your program
My turn to unload
Unbelievably certain
Guaranteed to explode

    My InterpretationIt's an extended metaphor, comparing a relationship to a dangerous race. Sometimes, a guy can't tell whether a woman wants to break up with him or not. He's trying to make the relationship as exciting as a race, but is afraid of crashing and burning due to a miscalculation. Especially in the beginning, a lot of relationships consist of tightrope walking and a fear of screwing up end everything.

    It’s a matter of time
    It’s a matter of luck
    It’s a factor of chance
    ’til I self-destruct
    You fire at random
    I’m under attack
    Strapped in and freewheeling
    Flying off the track
    I want to be your time bomb
    Let me be your time bomb baby
    I want to be your time bomb
    Please let me be your time bomb baby
    Everywhere there is danger
    Absolutely for real
    Subliminal feelings
    Too strong to conceal
    Unscramble your program
    My turn to unload
    Unbelievably certain
    Guaranteed to explode

    I like that the title is called "Race of Doom", but it has this really...."game"showey" feel towards the start, but the instrumentals develope a dark side...

    General CommentYeah, the beginning is very "Wheel! Of! FORTUNE!"

    It's an action-packed doomed love song. Usually they're mopey.
