lyrics

EVERYONE’S A TIME BOMB

i’ve been spending time
with a friend of mine
peeping through a tunnel
thirsty in the face
he speaks to me of space
like you could pour it through a funnel
and he’s on the money
he’s on the money

and he’s always telling me something
about how the treasure is real
how it makes you feel like living
is the one thing you can die from
i mean everyone’s a time bomb

so with no time to waste
i’m hot on the case
i’m digging through the rubble
earth to shovel this is your captain speaking
mental as a puzzle
but i’m on the money
i’m on the money

‘cause i’m always searching for something
for a sign that the treasure is real
for a sign that it’s living
and it’s the one thing you can die from
that everyone’s a time bomb

yeah you can fall down drunk
you can fall down hurt
but all the while time is throwing on the dirt

so keep moving
or be buried

oh ground control
i’ve dug myself a whole
now i’m broken broke and drowning
but better off than many
i’m hopeful as a penny thrown into a fountain
so i’m on the money
and yeah we’re on the money

‘cause if you’re always wishing on something
then who cares if the treasure is real
whatever makes you feel like living
is the one thing you can die from
i mean everyone’s a time bomb

so keep moving
or be buried
