Kiss – Detroit Rock City lyrics

I feel uptight on a Saturday night
Nine o' clock, the radio's the only light
I hear my song and it pulls me through
Comes on strong, tells me what I got to do
I got to

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

Getting late
I just can't wait
Ten o'clock and I know I gotta hit the road
First I drink, then I smoke
Start up the car, and I try to make the midnight show

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

Movin' fast, doin' 95
Hit top speed but I'm still movin' much too slow
I feel so good, I'm so alive
I hear my song playin' on the radio
It goes

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City

Twelve o'clock, I gotta rock
There's a truck ahead, lights starin' at my eyes
Oh my God, no time to turn
I got to laugh 'cause I know I'm gonna die
Why

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

    This song is the real life story about a kiss fan going to a midnight concert for the band. While racing along the highway to the concert, which just so happens to be in Detroit, the unnamed fan was going speeds of up to 150 miles an hour, while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The belligerent fan ends up hitting a semi-truck kill himself instantly. Paul Stanley wrote this song in dedication to that fan, and despite having an up beat tone the lyrics are dark in nature.
