"Do The Panic" as written by Alexander Greenwald and Jason Schwartzmann....
I guess we're all in trouble, huh?
Black clouds are upon us
And it's doomsday on the other side of town.
That boy survived a severed head
When most would just give up for dead,
So I said: "Al B. don't get so upset."
We all get scared of sticking out our necks
It's expected!

So panic...

It's time to lose control!
Turn off your radio!
You're gonna feel alright!
Let's do the panic tonight!

This place is turning upside down,
And shaking all of our change out,
And Charlotte's tossing her hair to the hounds
But it's her head they want on the wall
Right next to the screeching owl,
And I don't like this party
Or the sound
Of people walking across you when you're down.
And that's it!
So panic.

It's time to lose control!
Turn up your radio!
Yeah you can bring your friends!
So we all do the panic again!

    General CommentThese lyrics are not right at all!
    the first verse is
    "I guess we're all in trouble, huh?
    Black clouds are upon us
    Its doomsday on the other side of town..."
    I can't quite make out the rest but I'm sure these lyrics above are not it.

    So I said: "Al B. don’t get so upset."

    This place is turning upside down,
    And shaking all of our change out,
    And Charlotte’s tossing her hair to the hounds -
    But it’s her head they want on the wall
    Right next to the screeching owl,
