The sci-fi, surf-rock song that inspired a webcomic, "Time Bum" is a gas.

lyrics

Red, green or blue,
I don't know which,
Wires to cut,
To flip your switch,
From freaking out,
To laying low,
Your LED reads,
Seconds to blow.

I hear you ticking,
Cuz you're a (tic tic tic tic),
Time Bum.

Don't get so mad,
Calm down a bit,
The shrapnel incurred,
Is not worth it,
Broken we'll land,
Battered and bruised,
You're the plastique,
While I'm the fuse.

I hear you ticking,
Cuz you're a (tic tic tic tic),
Time Bum.

6-5-4-3-2-1!
You are set to explode!
Pow!
