In the lyrics of the song Titi Kala Mangsa (TKM) there is an implied message that is not easily read by the lay audience. This study aims to describe the meaning of time and messages from TKM lyrics. The discussion uses interpretive theory to uncover meaning through the structure of the TKM lyrics which refers to the theory of the continuity of Riffaterre's expression, that is the reading of meaning with heuristic and hermeneutic interpretations. Based on the description of the meaning, the message that contained in the TKM song can be known. The results of the analysis represent that the time in the TKM song lyrics has meaning related to the cosmos, namely the microcosm (human) and the macrocosm (universe). Humans have wasted their time when they have to carry out their roles; maintain balance of himself. Human imbalance makes the universe chaos. The message revealed is; humans can carry out roles according to their time. If it is maintained, it will not happens caused by anger (ora nrima ing pandum) on the influence of Batara Kala. By being wary of times, the misery will be ends and human life becomes balanced
