Petra's lyrics that are confusing

Post by Dan » Thu Jul 31, 2014 8:00 am

Has anyone found any Petra songs that have lyrics that they don't understand or make no sense?

If I had, I probably wouldn't be a Pethead now. It was that very attribute of "always making sense" that made them beat the Newsboys for me.

Off the top of my head, I can't recall anyone in particular, but I'll have to give it some thought.

"This bomb is ticking and we're getting to the end of the fuse..." So, which detonation system does this thing have? :lol:

That would be ultimate bomb don't you think? I never realized it said it just like that.

Yes, this is most disconcerting. For I have set fire to a wind up alarm clock, and it did not burn well without an accelerant. I have lit numerous fuses and have yet to hear them tick. My recollection is, even back to the days of the A-Team in the 80s, people have been using digital, non-ticking, mechanisms for a long time.

But, to be fair, any type of time bomb (fuse included) is considered as a "ticking" device.

Do you know how funny it is that someone named Thief would know about bombs?

Maybe it's an electronic fuse.
