lights out for the cynical sharps for their wide-eyed foils and all attendant props supporters of flash and pan-fried fucks who grease like cops throwing round their weight and i feel dangerous and vexed swinging two ton second guess and every motion just cuts too cruel too cruel and the implication is that you're implicated like a caustic acrostic spelling out your name lights out cos i can see in the dark sidewind m way to the mark of fuse lines gas-wet for a spark i crash i burn i've fully lost it anyway and you're nowhere lights out loser

    General CommentI know that "Caustic" means sarcastic, or biting and "Acrostic" means something like a verse that the letters form a regular sequence of letters in the alphabet. That's pretty much all I know.

    General CommentAn Acrostic is a poem where the first letter of each line when put together spell a word or phrase. Interestingly this song is not written as an acrostic.

    Example of an acrostic:

    Furious rhythm
    Unclear lyrics
    Great melodies
    Angry vocals
    Zany dancing
    Incredible band

    General CommentHeh Heh, nice acrostic. I would have to say that the actual meaning of these lyrics is fairly irrelevant because of the biting and anger-infused tone they bring to this awesome song.

    My OpinionHm, well, it kinda sounds like a description of a tv game show of sorts... but then again, it sounds like the "I" is burning the fuse and then caught by the cops... Very cryptic.
    A small correction: I'm pretty sure it's "throwing round their BODY weight."
