Rise up on the floor
Check your guns at the door
You won't need them anyway
Gasoline burns as all the heads turn
To see what you've got to say

So put em up, Put em up
Show me what you've got
Show me how you do it, How you're never gonna stop
Shut em down, Shut em down
It's coming back around
This is how we do it and we're gonna do it now

So let's fight it out
Let's take it to the ground
Let's turn it up and see who's going down
So let's fight it out
Let's take it to the ground
Let's turn it up and see who's going down

Break down, this is it, rockin like terrorist
Strapped with a flag and a gun
Violent talk makes the broken glass break
And soon you'll be ready to run

So put em up, Put em up
Show me what you've got
Show me how you do it, How you're never gonna stop
Shut em down, Shut em down
It's coming back around
This is how we do it and we're gonna do it now

Put em up, Put em up
Show me what you've got
Show me how you do it, How you're never gonna stop
Shut em down, Shut em down
It's coming back around
This is how we do it and we're gonna do it now

Put em up, Put em up
Show me what you've got
Show me how you do it, How you're never gonna stop
Shut em down, Shut em down
It's coming back around
This is how we do it and we're gonna do it now

So let's fight it out
Let's take it to the ground
Let's turn it up and see who's going down
So let's fight it out
Let's take it to the ground
Let's turn it up and see who's going

Put em up, Put em up
Show me what you've got
Shut em down, Shut em down
Put em up, Put em up
Show me what you've got
Shut em down, Shut em down
