[Verse One: Tom DeLonge]
Home show, mom won't know
Run out the back door, he's passed out on the floor
Third time, been caught twice
Forgive our neighbor Bob, I think he humped the dog

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
But good things come to those who wait
Cause she laid me

And mom and dad possess the key
Instant slavery

No need explain the plan
No need to even bother
I'll pack my bags I swear I'll run

Wish my friends were 21

[Verse Two: Tom DeLonge]
White lies, bloodshot eyes
Breath of alcohol, stole it from the mall
How's Chris marked with lipstick
Better call their fathers, sleeping with your daughters

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
But good things come to those who wait
Cause she laid me
And mom and dad possess the key
Instant slavery
No need explain the plan
No need to even bother
I'll pack my bags I swear I'll run
Wish my friends were 21

[Chorus: Tom Delonge]
You don't belong, you left the kids to carry on
You planned their fall
Too bad you're wrong, don't need a mom-dad slave drive song
I time bomb, I time bomb, I time bomb, I time bomb
I time bomb


Turn low the radio
I think I hear my dad yelling at the band


[Chorus: Tom Delonge]
But good things come to those who wait
Cause she laid me
And mom and dad possess the key
Instant slavery
No need explain the plan
No need to even bother
I'll pack my bags I swear I'll run
Wish my friends were 21

[Outro: Tom Delonge]
You don't belong, you left the kids to carry on
You planned their fall
Too bad you're wrong, don't need a mom-dad slave drive song
I time bomb, I time bomb, I time bomb, I time bomb
I time bomb
