No matter what you think you pull
You'll find it's not enough
No matter who you think you know
You won't get through
It's a given, L.A. law
Someone's faster on the draw
No matter where you hide
I'm comin' after you
No matter how the race is won
It always ends the same
Another room without a view
Awaits downtown
You can shake me for a while
Live it up in style
No matter what you do
I'm gonna take you down
Shakedown, breakdown, takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown, takedown, your busted
Let down, your guard, honey
Just about the time you’re thinkin it's alright
Breakdown, takedown, your busted
This is a town where everyone
Is reaching for the top
This is a place where second best will never do
It's O.K. to want to shine
But once you step across that line
No matter where you hide
I'm comin after you
Shakedown, breakdown, takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown, takedown, your busted
Shakedown, breakdown, honey
Just about the time you’re thinkin it's alright
Breakdown, takedown, your busted
