(same as before)

He laughed at accidental sirens that broke the evening gloom.

The police had warned of repercussions.

They followed none too soon.

A trickle of strangers were all that were left alive.

 

chorus

Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph

He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone.

Panic in Detroit.

 

D C

Putting on some clothes I made my way to school

B C G

and I found my teacher crouching in his overalls.

 

D C

I screamed and ran to smash my favorite slot machine

B C D

and jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights.

verse 3

Having scored a million dollars, made a run back home.

Found him slumped across a table. A gun and me alone.

I ran to the window. Looked for a plane or two.

 

Panic in Detroit. He'd left me an autograph.

"Let me collect dust." I wish someone would phone.

Panic in Detroit.

 

go out on intro rhythm, I prefer massive whammy and feedback abuse
