about

2/25 ~ Tick, tick, tick, boom. I’m at the point where I’m starting to consider myself a time bomb. Things are happening so fast. I’ve got an awful lot of catching up to do. And I’m so up for the challenge. This one took about five minutes to write and about twenty minutes to record. I’m not sure if my production chops are up to snuff but I’m running on overdrive and I’m getting very effective at churning them out quickly. Which in the end leaves more time for production. Wanted to make sure there was a breakdown section in this one. Audience participation. I love that stuff. Gotta say I miss playing live six nights a week. These last two years (wow) in my new home have been so good for my soul. I’m writing. It’s intense. I’m always five songs behind. And gee, never mind the back catalogue. There’s about 500 songs there. I’ll have to get around to those in my next life. This life, the rest of it, is for the new songs. No backtracking for this cat if I can help it. Just love the studio .. I am made for this. Hours of drum editing? I’m all in. Hours of trying to find the right guitar riff or sound? Present and accounted for. Oh, I’ll be in heaven when I tackle the vocals. Your little “Time Bomb” is hard at work. Saturn’s such a taskmaster. Love it … 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
