Lyrics: Larry Kirwan.
Tune: Larry Kirwan.


Wait until dawn.
The streets will be cool and clean again.
Then, it’s time to go downstairs, meet the man.
He’ll be sittin’ in a limo with a gun in his hand.

You’ve been waiting like this for years,
Through all the laughter and the cloudy tears,
Always standin’ on a tightrope through a million little bands,
Always waitin’ for redemption. Now, it’s right at hand.

You’ll hear me tickin’ like a time bomb
Ready, ready to explode.
Too late to turn back now.
I’ve gone beyond overload.

You’ll hear me tickin’ like a time bomb
Ready, ready to ignite.
It’s now or never, my darlin’.
It’s too late to turn back to-ni-ni-ni-ni-night.

Nothin’ left to gain.
Just more of the same old thing again.
Always runnin’ ’round in circles.
Always workin’ for the man.

But tonight, I’m breakin’ out of here.
Tonight, I’m gonna make a stand.
I’ve never felt so alive.
My heart is on fire and so is my mind.

And now it’s time to go downstairs and meet the man.
Catch his look of confusion
When I take him by the hand.

You’ll hear me tickin’ like a time bomb
Ready, ready to ignite.
It’s now or never, my darlin’.
It’s too late to trun back to-ni-ni-night.

Like a time bomb
Ready, ready to explode.
Too late to turn back now.
I’ve gone beyond overload.

You’ll hear me tickin’ like a time bomb
Ready, ready to ignite.
It’s now or never, my darlin’.
It’s too late to turn back to-ni-ni-ni-ni-night.
