LyricsEdit

Hey
Living by the law is a bloody necessary bore
Everybody, are you gettin' what you're lookin' for
Livin' by the rules is somethin' that you gotta do
But does it matter if we break a rule or two?
Get up, break out, don't be the odd one out

Livin' on the edge, I'm a-tryin' to keep a level head
Every morning it's a bummer gettin' out of bed
Same old story, does a-nothin' ever ever change?
Yeah, they lock me up and then they let me out again
Get up, break out, don't be the odd one out
Come on, it's alright, we're hot tonight

You better run (run, run riot)
You gotta run (run, run riot)
You know the time has come (run, run riot)
I mean everyone (run, yeah run riot)
Oh, gotta run riot babe

Goin' through the motions, desperation guaranteed
Whoa, get f-f-frustrated easily
Pedal to the metal, senses working overtime
Hey, gonna fight to the finish baby, draw the line
Get up, break out, don't be the odd one out
C'mon, it's alright we're hot to-ni-ni-night

Run (run, run riot)
You gotta run (run, run riot)
You know the time has come (run, run riot)
I mean everyone (run, yeah run riot)
Speak to me

They lock me up
They let me out
But I'm up and runnin'
I scream and shout

Get up, break out, don't be the odd one out
Come on, it's alright, we're hot tonight
You better run (run, run riot)
You gotta run (run, run riot
You know the time has come (run, run riot)
Come on, run with me (run, run riot)
Run (run, run riot)
Hey, I'll take you from your misery
Come on, stick with me
