Meet me tonight by the bombed out carnival.
We'll hide out where the house of mirrors is smashed up like an icicle field.
We'll hide in the ferris wheel car
And we'll watch from the top as the cop sirens squeal, squeal!

Click! Click! Click! Click!
Bang! Bang!
Went my gun in the convenience store clerk's face.
"Give me all your fucking money,"
My voice quivered,
My hands wavered.
A little kid got it in the face-
He didn't stand a chance!

Love hounds is all we are.
We want it all right now.
Handsome young gentlemen,
Robbing and murdering
In the afternoon..
In the afternoon.
Love hounds is all we are.
We want it all right now.

Meet me tonight in the abandoned planetarium.
We'll hide in the dark as fake moons flicker and spark.

Click! Click! Click! Click!
Bang! Bang!
Went my gun in the crowded supermarket.
Now everybody knows our face.
Our picture's in the papers,
Our face's on the cameras,
We've got nowhere to go-
We're on the run!

Love hounds is all we are.
We want it all right now.
A gorgeous, wild woman sings
Calypso funeral hymns
In your getaway subway..
Your getaway subway.
Love hounds is all we are.
We want it all right now.

Electrocuted streets, electrocuted city.
We've bloomed from liars to theives.
We make guitars sound pretty.
Electrocuted streets, electrocuted city.
We've bloomed from lovers to pornographers.
We've bloomed from murderers to mass-murderers.

You know, all I ever wanted was a little money in my pocket
And my face on the 5 o'clock news.

Love hounds is all we are.
We want it all right now.
Love hounds is all we are.
We want it all right now.

We're swinging from the trees
Like pinatas for police
To crack and eat and chew..
To crack and eat and chew.
Love hounds is all we are.
We want it all right now.

    General Commentwell obviously this song is about how people do crimes for publicity, not necessarily the money, and eventually they become notorious because they avoid the cops cause they don't wanna go to jail
