Verse 1 This place gives a much needed face To the kind of town that should be burnt down No makeup is needed to see who around here is a clown You bring the fire I'll bring the gasoline I think the setting alone looks menacing Chorus Needles and newspapers strewn about Shapeshifters drive straight through the roundabout Takes an eraser to all the moments we shared Forget the smiles, recall when tempers flared Needles and newspapers line the sidewalk You were told of them both, step on them in shock Verse 2 Elevator music loudly plays The soundtrack to all of our forays Lingering attraction always stays We smolder like heat from a fireplace Sometimes forever looks like only two years Watch the serpent cry her crocodile tears Repeat Chorus Verse 3 Looking for the heart of a maniac Like searching for a needle in a haystack Conjecture XXXXXXXX XXX XX XX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XX XX XXX X XXXX XXX XXXXXX X XXXX XXXXXXX X XXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXX X XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XX XX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXXXX XX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXX

Panic Button

By Diana Olosho

This is a song about guys who you and your friend thought you’ve figured out. However they end up being more than what we actually thought. For example I thought this guy was just a cute, nice and maybe a bit shy guy but he is actually the opposite, he is quite straightforward. Hence why I was left a bit shocked at 4 o’clock in the morning. So I texted my friend and she couldn’t believe it as well. Despite being in this situation I think it’s really funny so the lyrics are meant to be for a cheerful song.
