“Time Bomb” ~ Tick three … honey, there’s no kill switch. And that’s the point. The songs and ideas just keep coming. So I’m a time bomb. Two years ago I decided to spend the rest of my life with my music. Decisions were made. Many guitars got loaded into my trusty van, Alex. Off we went. Spend the rest of my life going through the catalog. Catching up. Saturn and the angels said no. Here’s some new stuff to mess about with. I’m up for the challenge. This one took me about five minutes to write. It actually surprised me how fast the demo was put together. Most of the ideas and parts stuck around. But, of course, at some point, you have to make the doll ready for her debut. A little frosting, my lovelies. Absolutely wanted a breakdown section in this one. Bring the audience in. I love that stuff. There’s also an amazingly bright side to all of this. The WarRoom here at Candyland is finally wired for sound. Completely. Line out from the recording console in the NerveCentre to the WarRoom, one floor below. Mute the lead vocals and I’m the Karaoke King. And I’m taking this show on the road. Hard to believe I have forty songs ready, more or less, for the stage. And hopefully, find a band along the way. In the meantime, it’s tick, tick, tick, boom! Love your summer shine … xoRJ

lyrics

Tick one .. tempermental
Tick two .. I’m unpredictable
Tick three .. handle with caution
Tick four .. hit the floor

I’m a time bomb - baby
Ready to go off on you
I’m a time bomb - baby
Tick - tick - tick - tick

Tick one .. timer’s faulty
Tick two .. my wires are crossed
Tick three .. watch for fall-out
Tick four .. hit the floor

I’m a time bomb - baby
Ready to go off on you
I’m a time bomb - baby
Tick - tick - tick - tick - boom ..

Mmm .. yeah, yeah .. mmm yeah
I’m a time bomb - baby

Tick one .. untested model
Tick two .. I’m the prototype
Tick three .. honey, there’s no kill switch
Tick four .. hit the floor

I’m a time bomb - baby
Ready to go off on you
I’m a time bomb - baby
Tick - tick - tick - tick

Time bomb - baby
Ready to go off on you
I’m a time bomb - baby
Tick - tick - tick - tick - boom ..

I’m a time bomb - oh, I’m a time bomb
Ooo yeah ooh yeah
Mama said - now, yeah - you’re a time bomb
Ooh, I’m ready to go off on you
Time bomb - baby
Ready to go off on you
I’m your time bomb - baby - yeah yeah
Ready to go off on you
Ready to go - ready to go
Whoo hoo hoo - ready to go off on you
Ready to go - I’m ready to go ..

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
