Everybody Get Dangerous

Album: The Red Album (2008)
  • When I was younger
    I used to go and tip cows for fun, yeah
    Actually I didn't do that
    Cause I didn't want the cow to be sad
    But some of my friends did
    They were all just a little bit wicked
    They'd blow up mail boxes
    With a baseball bat
    Go for direct hits

    I know how to win you can forget it
    They throw rotten eggs into traffic
    Toilet paper the fences
    Throw the tables, chairs, and the benches
    After practice
    Sometimes we would break into mad fits
    Causin' damage
    (Burnin' amplifiers and mic stands)

    Everybody get dangerous
    Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
    Everybody get dangerous
    Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
    Everybody get dangerous
    Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
    Everybody get dangerous
    Everybody get dangerous

    I've got a confession
    That I will make if you will listen
    Late in the nighttimes
    We'd drive around with hairspray and sharp knives
    Lookin' for road kills
    Lightin' things on fire for cheap thrills
    Stab the corpses
    And lick the knives like we're evil forces

    Hockey games on frozen ponds
    No safety pads were ever put on
    Drivin' home on country roads
    Sixty-five in a twenty-five zone
    In my parents Tercel
    How did we survive so well
    Throw the keys and the wheel locked up
    I almost killed every one us


    There must be
    A guardian angel
    Or some kind of destiny we have
    Cause we should have died
    A long time ago
    The way that we were livin' in our paths

    What will we say when our kids come to us
    And ask, with a smile on their face,
    "Hey Dad, my friend's got some new ninja swords!
    Is it cool if we slash up his place?"
    Hey ("Is it cool if we slash up his place?")
    And get dangerous
