  • All the kids are throwing sticks
    Politics
    Nights on the wire
    Everybody wants to get by
    'Ts a test of the times
    A test of my rights
    It's on pretty lady

    Born to be angry
    Grip of the vice
    Click on the trigger, girl
    Sip wine on ice

    It's about time
    Best to rewind
    You better blow
    Pistols, pistols, pistols

    Lights low
    Go on baby go
    It's a bad time
    I'm on a tight rope

    Don't go oh go
    It's about time, it's about time

    Everybody come on
    Lights on the beaches
    Everybody come on, delight

    Close the front door
    I don't wanna go
    Like I'm on the Truman Show

    Best to let go
    You don't wanna know
    You better blow

    Pistols, pistols, pistols
    Lights low
    Go on baby go
    It's a bad time
    I'm on a tight rope

    Don't go oh go!
    It's about time, it's about

    All the years of paradise
    Paradigms
    Paralyze us
    You're crazy

    All the cards you've organized
    Shuffled twice in front of my eyes
    Everybody has
    Needs, wants, a cold gun

    Lights low
    Go on baby go
    It's a bad time
    I'm on a tight rope

    Don't go oh go!
    It's about time, it's about
    Pistols, pistols Writer/s: Eric Cannata, Francois Comtois, Jacob Tilley, Payam Doostzadeh, Sameer Gadhia
