You know, I'm sorry I won't make it to your party Got caught up in my own selfishness It won't let me be a part of this And I know I've started Drifting off every second I can't wait to leave as soon as I arrive I count the seconds
Down and down we go We'll torch this place we know Before one of us takes a chance And breaks this, I won't be the one No, I won't be the one
I know it's pathetic Fuck it, yeah, I said it Tried to tell it like it is There's a chance that I'll regret it, so Let's go, let's end this I delete before I send it And we can play pretend Like we haven't reached the end yet
Down and down we go And we'll torch this place we know Before one of us takes a chance And breaks this, I won't be the one No, I won't be the one
(You know, I'm sorry) (I'm sorry) No, I won't be the one No, I won't be the one

The Isley Brother's song, "Contagious," peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100. This meant that the band of brothers became the first group to score a Top 50 hit in six consecutive decades on the chart.
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
