"Rockers to Swallow" as written by and Nicholas Joseph Zinner Brian Chase....
Hey, hey

Hey, hey

Tell me we're rockers to swallow
Tell me we're knockers to bite
And out of the beats of tomorrow
Tell me what beat fills the night

A da da da da da swallow
A da da dat da da wallow
A da da dat da da wallow
A da da dat da da wallow hey

Hey, hey

Hey, hey

No need for those
It's all over your clothes
It's all over your face
It's all over your nose
No need for those
It's all over your clothes
It's all over your face
It's all over your nose

Cheap high
High light
Cheap high
High night

A da da da da da swallow
A da da dat da da wallow
A da da dat da da wallow
A da da dat da da wallow hey

Tell me we're rockers to swallow
Tell me we're knockers to bite
And out of the beats of tomorrow
Tell me what beat fills the night

A da da da da da swallow
A da da dat da da wallow
A da da dat da da wallow
A da da dat da da wallow hey

Hey, huh, hey

    General CommentThis song pwns ass. :PP
    It's a great rockin' song with so much rage and craziness, I absolutely love it. I love how Karen O can scream so loud like that, it's unbelievable.

    General Commentthe new cd kicks ass. it's pure yyy.
    i just want to go lez for karen o.
    yeah shes that great.

    but anyway, i thought this song was about getting to the top as far as in the music industry... tell me what rockers to swallow=tell me what bands we need to beat, or it could be tell me what guys to blow so we can get to the top. then "and out of the beats of tomorrow, tell me what beat fills the night" means tell me what is the newest thing.
    i feel like this song could kind of be sarcastic.

    anyway, i'm not sure but yeah

    General Commenther voice over reminds me of the Tegan and Sara's voices... i wonder if she's mocking them. i can't tell the difference between tegan and sara, cause im not a fan of their music.
