• I realize I missed a day
    I'm too wrecked to care anyway
    I look around and see this face
    What the hell have I lost my taste
    Don't want to find out
    Just want to cut out

    My head explodes, my ears ring
    I can't remember just where I've been
    The last thing that I recall
    I got lost in a deep black hole
    Don't want to find out
    Just want to cut out

    (Blackout, I really had a blackout)

    I grab my things and make my run
    On the way out, another one
    Would like to know before I stop
    Did I make it or did I flop
    Don't want to find out
    Just want to get out

    (Blackout I really had a blackout)

    (Yeah yeah, I really had a blackout baby)

    Don't want to find out
    Just want to get out

  • Gary from Pageland, ScHerman Rarebell tells a different story in his book. He doesn't mention the TV getting blown up at all, but said Rudolf Schenker was plastered and wandering around in a parking lot and was approached by some cops. Herman said he came to the rescue and promised the cops he would take care of Rudolf and kept him from getting arrested. But, Herman's book is not worth reading anyway, and this is from a huge Scorpions fan.
  • Luke from Dayton, OhThis alwyas reminds me of a haunted cave because they played this song
  • Alex from Boucherville (montreal), QcThat fact is completely stupid! How can you come with a title like that with a story like that? XD it has nearly nothing to do with Judas Priest, Def Leppard and the TV thing, why tell it? XD
  • Ani from Yerevan, Armenia"Blackout" is my favorite album from Scorpions. Great album, Powerful songs!!!
