Timebomb

Post from January 2018:

If you wanna make a move then you better come in
It’s just the ability to reason that wears so thin
Living and dying and the stories that are true
Secret to a good life is knowing when you’re through

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadilla
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb

Well, he’s back in the hole where they got him living like a rat
But he’s smarter than that nine lives like a cat
15 years old take him to the youth authority home
First thing you learn is that you got to make it in this world alone

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb

Now he’s gotten out
He’s gotten free
He got a coat
Got a car
He’s 21 years old
He’s runnin’ numbers from the bar
His pager’s beepin’
He’s getting deep in
Whatever he can move on in you know that kid’s a creepin’

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
The boy’s a time bomb
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb

Solo

Tears come from the razor
That’s been tattooed below his eye
His mother cries
She knows that he is strong enough to die
He’s rollin’ in the Cadillac
It’s midnight
Sunroof is down
Three shots rung out
The hero’s dead
The new king is crowned

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac
Yeah
The boy’s a time bomb

Time bomb!
