Pointy two tones echo down the street
The street the street the street the street
Shiny buckles jangle to the beat
The beat the beat the beat the beat
Hair just right he knows he's looking cool tonight
He hopes he finds her in the neon light

Insurrection acts just like a prayer
Bad intentions collar turned against the wind
It's such a simple twist you just flick the switch
It's so easy to forget a life like this a life like this

He doesn't care he's had a taste
It's such a simple contortion
No easy solution
It's an act of faith

Still 5 will get you six if you play the dice right
5'll get you six if you play the dice right
5'll get you six if you play the dice right
5'll get you six boy

Insurrection acts just like a prayer
Bad intentions collar turned against the wind
It's such a simple twist you just flick the switch
It's so easy to forget a life like this a life like this

Still 5 will get you six
If you play the dice right
5'll get you six if you play the dice right
5'll get you six if you play the dice right
5'll get you six boy
