Atention Atention
New cufew hours for all city sections five through seventeen...
...Your leader has annouced to track down


Ladies and gentlemen
Presenting the outrageous
I’m music without limelight
A guitarist without stages
I’m a Hells Angel without the Harley Davidson
You’re a golden state warrior
Without Antawn Jamison
I’m your last laugh without a punch line
I’m a fistfight in your high school halls at lunchtime
I’m dangerous like car wrecks without the drunk driver
I’m that island that traps you and votes you off like survivor
I’m MacGyver without a red switchblade
I’m man made
I’m graffiti on the walls without the aerosol spray
I’m a 30-second delay without the time limit
I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it
I’m that gold chain ready to be snatched from your neck
I’m that AIDS virus when you don’t practice safe sex
I’m that hole in your latex that made your whole world crash
The most dangerous 3-letter word is YAS

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
Nobody can do it like this

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
Let’s get it on like this

I’m your last bit of oxygen
I’m Waco Texas
I’m a 13-year-old kid stealing your Lexus
I’m a trilogy without the second and third sequels
I’m a crash test dummy without the smashed up vehicle
I’m everything you dream of
I’m life without death
I’m a respirator holding on to your last breath
I’m Bill Gates’ Microsoft without Silicon Valley
I’m a natural born killer without Mickey or Mallory
You’re a chair being thrown around at a Bobby Knight practice
I’m a cross between rival gangs and celebrity death matches
I attack this like pythons, I’m a living icon
You wanna see the apocalypse, then turn my mic on

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
Nobody can do it like this

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
Let’s get it on like this

1,2,1,2 I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it
1,2,1,2 I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it
1,2,1,2 I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it
1,2,1,2 I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it
1,2,1,2 I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
Nobody can do it like this

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
Let’s get it on like this

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it

Somebody back-up
There’s no room to stand up
Stop and throw your hands up
I’m a shark-infested ocean, I dare you to dive in it

    General Commenti saw PW in concert last summer at the warped tour i Toronto and they we very good. There wasn't many people who saw them causew Pennywise was playing at the same time. I got all there autographs it was fun, i love the lyrics to this song. Corny? Maybe but still its very powerful.
