Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, 'cause, like the world is ending 

Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, 'cause, like the world is ending 

Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, dance, 'cause the world is ending 

Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, dance, like the world is ending 
Dance, baby, 'cause, like the world is ending 

This is who you are
This is who you are
This is who you are
This is who you are
This is who you are
This is who you are

Oh
Oh

Sit back and look for the warnings 
The future's bright and alarming 
Sit back and look for the warnings 

Sit back and look for the warnings 
The future's bright and alarming 
Sit back and look for the warnings 

Go
Woo
Huh
Cool

Uh,
Baby walkin' around with your head cut off
Baby walkin' around with your head cut off
Uh,
Baby walkin' around with your head cut off
Baby walkin' around with your head cut off

 Their power is fear
And it surrounds me
 Their signs, you can see
One day we will wake the walking zombies
'Til then we pray
Oo

 Everybody  Everybody 

The king and his ghost are laughing at me
 These signs, you can see
One day we will listen for the sirens 
'Til then we pray

 Skeletons  Marching army
Guns
Drop your feet
I'm scared 
I'm Duke Ellington 
My mother said there'd be days like this
But one of the fires lit made her piss
 Climbing are zombies 
All up inside me
Transformin' vampires  Right beside me
And you can't run
'Cause, you do, you'll be dead
And them walls can't roll from the side of my head
I beat the drool 
I beat the ghouls 
But his last kiss
All suckers 
They will cease to exist 
I can't entertain with a beat up human 
Lay waste to cities  Leave towns in ruin
I
Am a
Ro-
Bot
 Whole arsenal stock  Ready to blow
 Lastly you see:
Me, be three by three  Firing these things called TNT 

Fire these things called TNT  These things called TNT 
They call me TNT  These things called TNT 

Uh,
We can dance like the world's over
Yeah, it's almost twenty twelve 
Call your girls over
Let's kick back
Pop shots 
Have a ball
And if the world blow up
Next life, we do it all over
Uh, yeah, let's toast to the memory 
I wrote my name in the sky, so remember me
Baby, forever we
 Together mentally
The day I leave me baby over somethin'
Then hell'll freeze  Froze 
This world cold, like Natalie 
So
Let's lose our clothes like L.E.
Back to the basics 
Step out the matrix 
Step out your cool
Baby, get on my spaceship 
I seen her face lit
She seen a sign like a mace is
So we ran home like a base hit
Safe
Life is whatever you think it is
Yo, what you think this is?

Uh, yeah it's all in your mind baby
You gotta do what you feel, like a blind lady
You gotta spread your wings and just fly, baby
It feel like you're reborn?
That's my baby
She said she feel it in her soul like a vibrator 
I got some things for your thoughts we can try later 
Let's hit the dance floor
 Right before we out of time
And just party like it's nineteen ninety nine
You know what Prince said
Girl, you my princess 
I got the glass slipper
I hope the thing fits
Your body on fire
Let me extinguish 
Hop on this white horse
Ride to the sunset 

Is anybody really out there breathin'?
Is anybody really sick of bleedin'
So come and scream into the sky this evening 
And 'fore the morning I'mma touch your feeling (ha)
Let's start today
(Thank you, alright)
Let's start today
(Woo, ah, yeah)
Let's start today
(Ha ha, yeah, wooo, ok)
Let's start today

 Start today
 Start today
Come on down

The queen's heart 
The knights of shame 
The people's voice 
So we pray and we pray
The queen's heart (queen's heart)
The knights of shame (knights of shame)
So we pray and we pray
The queen's heart 
The people's voice 
So we pray and we pray
The queen's heart 
The knights of shame 
So we pray, oh

Ooh

And yeah, it's no fun living for the fall
And there'll be no more waiting for you all
And there'll be one more chance for the truth  Without you
I would die

And yeah, it's no fun living for the fall
And there'll be no more waiting for you all
And there'll be one more chance for the truth  Without you
I would die

 Without you
I would die

 Waiting on a heartbeat 
Is anybody listening?
We're waiting on a heartbeat 
Can anybody hear me?

We're waiting on a heartbeat 
Is anybody listening?
We're waiting on a heartbeat 
Can anybody hear me?

We rob from the rich to blow down the door, oh
We rob from the rich and blow down the door
We rob from the rich and blow down the door
 Piano 
We rob from the rich to blow down the door

It's been a long time, waiting on your call
It's been a long time, waiting for you all
It's been a long time, waiting for you
But I can
Bum bum bum bum bum
