"Lights Out" as written by and Ronan Heenan....
Who the hell said any of you get a taste stupid?
Do you ever wanna get up all in your face?
You better take it
And nothin' you can do could make me ever go away
Fake it
Poor baby I'm gonna make it all OK

[Chorus]
Punch your lights out
Hit the pavement
That's what I call entertainment
Causin' problems makes you famous
All the violence makes a statement
Punch your lights out
Hit the pavement
That's what I call entertainment
Causin' problems makes you famous
All this violence makes a statement

She better get with the club

Who the hell said any of you get a taste stupid?
Do you ever wanna get up all in your face?
You better take it
And nothin' you can do could make me ever go away
Fake it
Poor baby I'm gonna make it all OK

[Chorus]

All this violence makes a statement

Punch your lights out
That's what I call entertainment
Punch your lights out

[Chorus]

All this violence makes a statement

    General CommentI think it's about just really hating a guy. It's just like, punching the guy and seeing him fall makes him happy? Haha, makes me feel better thinking about it for someone in particular.

    General CommentI think that the meaning of this song is quite simple. Just look at the tabloids in the news today..
    When a celebrity or even someone who isn't quite that famous yet, does something off-key, vulgar or violent, they become famous... even if it is for 15 minutes of fame. On the flipside society finds celebrity-star violence entertaining and feeds their brain by reading magazines that have headlines of such acts.

    General CommentFirst all of their songs had meanings, even if it was im the shit, and you all fucking suck. That is still a meaning.
    And really for me this song kinda reminds me about how violence makes you famous, just as blunt as can be. If you want to make a statment, violence is the easiest way to make it, and you can get famous by doing so. Like i dont know, hostage situations, school shootings, riots, that makes the news, and its insta-famous, even if its not a ppl like you kind of famous.

    Song Meaningdemonstrations, petitions, activism, arguments, ideals are all worth shit.

    go get a good, fair fight, it's better than sex, you might even find a best friend this way.
    This song is basically a true punk anthem. (no, not punk as with you mohawk hippies or SJWs)

    General CommentHmm. Listening to this on their myspace player now.
    I like it, but I dunno.
    Its not as great as it should be.
    Definately prefer their older songs.

    Quite catchy though.
    Im not sure though, it'll grow on me.
    I hope.

    General CommentMeaning: We love the crap that we experience in moshpits and see on tv, and end up justifying it by saying it resents our criticisms of society.

    General Commenti haven't thought much on the meaning of this song, but it makes me think about at their concerts, how Jimmy pushes crowdsurfers off the stage or kicks at the crowd and is violent/mean/rude... but in a funny way.
