  • Warn the army waiting for me
    Set the dial to the radio free
    Dying tell it to the bat on the run
    Pick em up with the sound of your guns
    Call em into wide eyes
    Watch em dance when you're kicked to the side
    Chatter up in a forbidding tone
    I've got you now with the heart of the young

    Ritual, the words creep out
    Like a ghost, the heart sinks down
    Animal, the teeth reach out
    Holding on, we're coming up strong again

    We dance like bullets in the wind
    Over and over again, over and over again
    Bringing life back from the dead
    Keeping the captain alive
    Over and over it goes, over and over it goes
    So turn up the transistor radio

    Drama trouble, get me some more
    Cut em deep, going down to the core
    Great scar, the kids in the rain
    Come together with the sound of the train
    Shut em up with a four letter word
    Bite your thumb, the car's gonna swerve
    Sound of clatter, the crash they did light
    Hurry up, this kid's gonna fight

    Ritual, the words creep out
    Like a ghost, the heart sinks down
    Animal, the teeth reach out
    Holding on, we're coming up strong again

    We dance like bullets in the wind
    Over and over again, over and over again
    Bringing life back from the dead
    Keeping the captain alive
    Over and over it goes, over and over it goes
    So turn up your transistor radio

    Pick up the beat then cry at the caskets
    Calm the masses and turn up the song
    Shake off your feet and exit the blackness
    Rise up from the ashes, you get to belong

    Ritual, the words creep out
    Like a ghost, the heart sinks down
    Animal, the teeth reach out
    Holding on, we're coming up strong again

    We dance like bullets in the wind
    Over and over again, over and over again
    Bringing life back from the dead
    Keeping the captain alive
    Over and over it goes, over and over it goes
    So turn up the transistor radio Writer/s: ILAN RUBIN, THOMAS DELONGE
