No matter what you think you pull you'll find it's not enough 
No matter who you think you know you won't get through 
It's a given L.A. law
Someone's faster on the draw
No matter where you hide I'm comin' after you yeah

No matter how the race is run it always ends the same
 Another room without a view awaits downtown
You can shake me for a while 
Live it up in style 
No matter what you do I'm gonna take you down

 Shakedown  Breakdown  Takedown  Everybody wants into the crowded line
 Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted 
Let down
Your guard 
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright  Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted 

This is a town where everyone is reachin' for the top
This is a place where second best will never do
It's okay to want to shine 
But once you step across that line
No matter where you hide I'm comin' after you

 Shakedown  Breakdown  Takedown  Everybody wants into the crowded line
 Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted  Shakedown  Breakdown 
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright  Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted 

Ah, busted 
Aw aw
 Shakedown  Breakdown  Takedown  Everybody wants into the crowded line
 Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted  Shakedown  Breakdown 
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright  Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted 

 Shakedown  Breakdown  Takedown  Everybody wants into the crowded line
 Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted 
Let down
Your guard 
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright  Breakdown  Takedown 
Ah, you're busted 

 Shakedown  Breakdown  Takedown  Everybody wants into the crowded line
 Breakdown  Takedown 
You're busted 
Let down
Your guard 
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
