"Shakedown!" as written by Phil Green and Sonny Miller....
HEY!
two-headed monster on the big blue screen
they tell you how to spend your dime
now all the minutes changed to hours
then the days fly by
and nothing occupies your mind

beautiful people tell you what to wear
and who to be
and what to buy
it's time to leave it all behind and...

rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! shakedown!
rise up! free your mind of what they say
rise up! shakedown!
rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! free your mind of what they say
rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! shakedown!

without a doubt they've thought of everything
of every way to steal your time
now all the days have changed to weeks
and still the years fly by
i never thought to question why

pretty people
all those people
talking at you
talking what when why
come on and leave it all behind and...

rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! shakedown!
rise up! free your mind of what they say
rise up! shakedown!
rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! free your mind of what they say
rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! shakedown!

yeah you're all dressed up and you got
nothing to lose
i see you've brought your
dancing shoes, well
let's figure out how to use those things, yeah!
come dance with me!
dance, i said!

rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! shakedown!
rise up! free your mind of what they say
rise up! shakedown!
rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! free your mind of what they say
rise up! dance to a different beat
rise up! shakedown!

rise up! shakedown!
rise up! shakedown!
rise up!

    General CommentI just heard this song on their MySpace and was instantly obsessed. I think it's about the media/celebrities/etc trying to tell you what's cool and what do wear and who to be. Pretty simple.
