Lights out, shoot up the station
TV's dead where's there to run?
Watch everybody come undone (Lights out)
We'll make it easy we'll make it run
One life they see now, how'd they get one?
Still I'll wait another run
Don't got to worry man I got you tight
Don't have to worry till I hit the lights
Wiped out, no concentration
They got us baskin' in a stole
I watched your ass head lose it all (Wiped out)
They ain't gone see me that's what I want
A casualty but I have more fun
And I know what it's about
I'm still here shaking my head
The way you care to come forth
I can't do what's down my head
There's no place to run
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah
