Lyrics

Howl loud and they'll know it's you. Screamin' 'bout all your bedroom blues with your curtains down, waking up the whole town.

Give her one kiss for the trouble now, two to keep her close enough to wonder: is it a blunder? A thousand bolts of lightning with no thunder.

But quit your crying, now. You will not escape this noise. Ruining all the sentimental, sad, and silly boys.

We built this city on rock n' roll and we never explain our lies. We fool ourselves about ourselves and can't look you in the eyes.

And you stand up, holding your hands up and throwing your voice, and no one can remember your name. You just laugh when your nervous 'cause they're all annoyed. And you can't remember why came. Just put on your mask and your elegant garments so that you won't recognize you. You won't recognize you any more than we do.

Turn around and get out of here. We don't owe you a god damn thing so just disappear. It's clear that you're not listening.

You seem bolder than you need to be with the hair up on your back. Fighting to be bigger than all the qualities you lack.

Well, yes, we've all seen better days, we've all seen better days. Ruining all your sentimental, sad, and silly ways.

But then, low and behold, the front's not old; a shiny new façade. All these scattered ants and animals all trying to be God.

And you stand up, holding your hands up and throwing your voice, and no one can remember your name. You just laugh when your nervous 'cause they're all annoyed. And you can't remember why came. Just put on your mask and your elegant garments so that you won't recognize you. You won't recognize you.

This stripped down notion, like an opening hand that begs "More, more, more, I need all you can handle". With your big mouth flapping out your terrible plan to be the best thing that ever ever ever ever happened...

And you stand up, holding your hands up and throwing your voice, and no one can remember your name. You just laugh when your nervous 'cause they're all annoyed. And you can't remember why came. Just put on your mask and your elegant garments so that you won't recognize you. You won't recognize you.
