Dismemberment Plan – Time Bomb lyrics

Well I, i am a time bomb and I, i lay forgotten at the bottom of your heart...
I'm fine, ticking away the hours to blow your world apart

I, I am a poison and I, i am still coursing through your bloodstream like
A ghost, like wine, gathering vintage for the day I hurt the most

I, I am a land mine and I, i lay on the soil burned out by battles you thought
You'd won, I've got time... To wait for the footsteps.. Of a memory that's on
The run... Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well I, i am a tar pit and I, i swell like a living thing all at the slightest
Touch.. A black grime, yeah, swallowing everything.. A cold and timeless clutch

I, well I am a trip wire, and I, I'm stretching across the road you're
Barreling down tonight... A thinish twine, waiting to be released right beyond
Your sight

I, well I am a fault line and I, I'm pulling apart the ground that lay beneath
Your newest seed.. So fine, moving in inches now, I'm crawling, I'm cutting, I'm cleaving, like a knife.

Well I, i am a time bomb I only live in that one moment in which you die... It's
Not right, it's not what I wanted then but you know and I know there's no going

I, I am a lost soul and I, i send out a sickened light for anyone to see... A
Cry for help, yeah, a warning to stay away... The burning... The blinding...
The reaching in darkness... Why, yeah, yeah
