It's A Raid

Album: Ordinary Man (2020)
  • (It's a raid!)
    (Oh no, hide everything)

    I hear them breathing on my telephone
    I know I'm never alone
    I've been to places you should never go
    God's really Satan and he's waiting for you out there

    Hideaway, I've been locked up for seven days
    I'm never coming out
    Wide awake, I feel my heart accelerate
    I'm never coming down
    Mama said you can't kill what's already dead
    And all the feds are waiting for me somewhere
    Hideaway, I've been locked up for seven days
    I'm never coming out
    Everybody wants me
    Everybody wants me

    Outside my window there's a silhouette
    My rifle's right beside my bed
    Oh Lord, I'm running out of cigarettes
    Fuck

    Hideaway, I've been locked up for seven days
    I'm never coming out
    Wide awake, I feel my heart accelerate
    I'm never coming down
    Mama said you can't kill what's already dead
    And all the feds are waiting for me somewhere
    Hideaway, I've been locked up for seven days
    I'm never coming out
    Everybody wants me
    Everybody wants me

    You're missing your fucking head, yeah
    Everything I am, everything I wanna be (hold on)
    Everything I am (get louder), won't you come along with me?
    Attack (yeah)
    I wanna see you go fucking animal
    Go fucking crazy, hahaha

    It's a raid!

    Hideaway, I've been locked up for seven days
    I'm never coming out
    Wide awake, I feel my heart accelerate
    I'm never coming down
    Mama said you can't kill what's already dead
    And all the feds are waiting for me somewhere
    Hideaway, I've been locked up for seven days
    I'm never coming out (shit)

    Attack!
    It's a raid!
    Everybody out!
    Fire!
    Fuck you all! Writer/s: Ali Tamposi, Andrew Wotman, Austin Post, Chad Smith, Lou Bell, Ozzy Osbourne
