well it's midnight, damn right, we're wound up too tight
I've got a fist full of whiskey, the bottle just bit me
ooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh
that shit makes me bat shit crazy
we've got no fear, no doubt, all in balls out

We're going off tonight
to kick out every light
to get anything that we want
To drink everything in sight
We're going till the world stops turning
while we burn it to the ground tonight
ooooohhhhhhh

we're screaming like demons, swinging from the ceiling
I got a fist full of fifties, the tequilia just hit me
ooooohhhhh
we got no class, no taste, no shirt, and shit faced
we got it lined up, shot down, firing back straight crown

We're going off tonight
to kick out every light
to get anything that we want
To drink everything in sight
We're going till the world stops turning
while we burn it to the ground tonight
ooooohhhhhhh

ticking like a time bomb, drinking till the nights gone
well get you hands off of this glass, last call my ass
weeelllll no chain, no lock, and this train won't stop
we got no friend, no tab, all in balls out

We're going off tonight
to kick out every light
to get anything that we want
To drink everything in sight
We're going till the world stops turning
while we burn it to the ground tonight
ooooohhhhhhh
We're going off tonight
to kick out every light
to get anyything that we want
To drink everything in sight
We're going till the world stops turning
while we burn it to the ground tonight

    It's not "we got no friend, no tab," the correct term is "we got no fear, no doubt" The first one is correct. Antilagger is also correct, there's no "the" before "tequila"

    awsom song! "to get anything we want, to drink everything in sight" should be "take anything we want, drink everything in sight" and only "tequila" not "the tequila" :P peace
