  • Keeping my thoughts under wraps tonight
    Keeping my feelings to myself
    I'm already broken hearted
    So let's get this party started

    The darkness comes with you
    With longing and desire
    Your anger burns inside your eyes
    They flash like burning coal

    Get out your head, get out your head
    Try not to think, be cool, be calm, be fake
    Dumb yourself down, numb yourself out
    Fake it till you make it break, make the world black out

    All the hurt you nurse inside
    You'd better cough it up
    Beautiful like shards of glass
    In your throat they'll cut you up

    Get out your head, get out your head
    Try not to think, be cool, be calm, be fake
    Dumb yourself down, numb yourself out
    Fake it till you make it break, make the world black out

    That was such a wicked thing to say
    That was such a spiteful thing to do
    You smile as the words spew out your mouth
    So I laugh in your face right back at you
    Oh, whoah

    There's no reward for men who weep
    No medals given out
    But better be the one who speaks
    Than be the man who won't
    (You, and you, and you, and you)

    Get out your head, get out your head
    Try not to think, be cool, be calm, be fake
    Dumb yourself down, numb yourself out
    Fake it till you make it break
    Make the world black out

    We all blackout
    We all blackout
    Get out your head, get out your head (we all blackout)
    Get out your head, get out your head (we all blackout) Writer/s: Bryan David Vig, Douglas Elwin Erickson, Shirley Ann Manson, Steve W Marker
