Powerman 5000

Powerman 5000 (sometimes abbreviated to PM5K) is an American alternative metal band formed in 1991. Through the span of just over two decades, the group has released several albums and gained their highest commercial success with 1999's science fiction themed Tonight the Stars Revolt!. Frontman Spider One is the younger brother of Rob Zombie, and their styles have often been a source for comparison. He is also the founder and only original member. more »

Out on your feet standing 8, standing, 8
You can't look to me when you sealed your own fate
It's one to four and you're half way there
I can tell from your face your and blank stare
That there ain't nothin' going on upstairs
And the state that you're in is despair
It ain't rare that your eyes are seeing double
It's par time for the course 'cause you know you're in some trouble

     One - check the eyes for some vision
   Two - I seem to sense indecision
   Three - you're getting weak in the knees
   Four - crying please baby please
   Five - begins the loss of the brain cells
   Six, six, six - and you go to Hell
   Seven - you ain't looking so right
   Eight - it's too late that's the end of the fight
   Out on your feet standing 8,
   Standing 8 out on your feet standing 8

     So what went wrong, you were so strong where's
The flow in your show
Must been something, but I don't know
You fly like an eagle, but you die like a dove
It seems to me that your name is mud

     Blood on the canvas painting a portrait
A slice of life and the fact that you're unfit
But you kept steppin' and gettin' your wreckin'
It seems like awhile but it only took a second

     Was that right? Was that the left? Was it the jab?
Or was it this hook?

     It's undisputed, but who did the damage
Do you think you can manage
Are you in or are you out?
Now there was a time when your mind was you mind
It's a desperate state I find when you're holding up
The peace sign your name to the contract to get
Yourself some combat but won't that start bringing
About decision
You've got a choice, much due respect or beat into
