Peasant pick a prophet
A dozen dimes a downfall
The marble floors are crackin'
Like the plaster on the walls
Paper-thin foundation
Gambler let it ride and roll
So why are we so shocked when
The matchstick house is over blown?

Lightning knock the power out
Huff and puff and blow the pig's house down
Lightning knock the power out

Doomsday is a'waiting
So you better start your praying
Preacher, better start your saving
'Fore the devil gets his share
Run and take cover 'cause it's really comin' down out there
With your candles, cans, and matches
Watch the wheels turn back into squares

Lightning knock the power out
Huff and puff and blow the pig's house down
Lightning knock the power out
Right out
Hey!

Nightstick cracks down and riot takes the town
One job lost and here's a bullet for the boss
Seven leaders meet and a thousand take the street
One button pressed and goodbye, it's the end.

One drop in the water and it's sayonara Disneytown
Kinda like the roots all cracking through the concrete ground
One squirrel in the walls and it's just a matter of time
Nitwit got the global joystick and long may the cockroach thrive

And that's the way it'll all go down
Lightning knock the power out
With simulation cities and computer towers
It wont take much to wipe it out
Lightning knock the power out
Huff and puff and blow the pigs house down
Lightning knock the power out... right out...
