"Blackout" as written by Blake Carney Allison and Joseph David Walser....
Keep it up, white your picket fences
Walk a line like you’re weak and defenseless
Keep it up, try to blend in
Don’t anything about anything, no
Keep it up, be afraid to impose
Keep it up, follow we’re your crowd goes
Zip it up, shut your damn mouth
Don’t do anything about anything, no

This is a sign of the times that we live in
Lay waste to the chance that we’re given

Blackout, shut the whole machine down
Everybody freak out and start over
Somehow kick the crooks and thieves out
You took anything and everything you could
And gave it away
And gave it away

Live it up, party like a pop star
It doesn’t matter who your family and your friends are
Give them up
You never cared about anyone, about anything, no
Live it up, buying all the hip clothes
Live it up, watching all the hit shows
Zip it up, shut your damn mouth
Don’t do anything about anything, no

This is a sign of the times that we live in
Lay waste to the chance that we’re given

Blackout, shut the whole machine down
Everybody freak out and start over
Somehow keep the crooks and thieves out
You took anything and everything you could

And I say fuck your American scene
That took my American dream
Fuck your American dream
Fuck your American dream

Blackout, shut the whole machine down
Everybody freak out and start over
Somehow kick the crooks and thieves out
You took anything and everything you could
And gave it away
And gave it away
