Lyrics:
Timebomb [Version (a)]:

We got a timebomb
We got a timebomb
We got a timebomb
Na na na na
We got a warning light
We got a warning light
We pull the plug out and we
Na na na na
Timebomb ticking
Timebomb ticking
It's a timebomb ticking
Going tick tick tick tick
Timebomb ticking
Timebomb ticking
It's a timebomb ticking
Going

We got a timebomb
We got a timebomb
Tick tick tick
Na na na na
We got a red alert
We got a red alert
We cut the power and we
Na na na na
It's a timebomb ticking
Timebomb ticking
It's a timebomb ticking
Going tick tick tick tick
It's a timebomb ticking
Timebomb ticking
It's a timebomb ticking
Going tick tick tick tick

We're going sideways
Highways
Riding on an elevator
Cold just like an alligator
Now my brain is out of date
Fighting and lightning
And tightening above the buckles
On an Autobahn timebomb
Tick tick tick tick

Bah bah ba ba ba ba

We got a timebomb
We got a timebomb
We got a timebomb
Na na na na
We got a red alert
We got a red alert
We pull the plug out and we
Na na na na
We got a cigarette
We got a cigarette
We got a ziggerut
Na na na na
Timebomb ticking
Timebomb ticking
It's a timebomb ticking
Going

Bah bah ba
 
The Song:

Beck began playing this live in June, 2006. Presumably it will be on the album due in the fall.

UPDATE: My presumption was incorrect--it was not on The Information!

UPDATE UPDATE: But in 2007, on the spring tour of Japan and Australia, Beck started playing the song again.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: In August, 2007, it was that Beck will be releasing "Timebomb" as a single. It will be available as a downloadable single, and as a limited edition vinyl. The announcement says it is "a song for bonfires, blackouts, and the last hurrah of summer."
