Official Lyrics

Danny: Goodnight, sleep tight
Don't let the dead bite

Johnny 3 Tears: Johnny 3 and he's dipping in the four-door
.44 and it's pointing at your window
Ain't a good shot, here come four more
Getting hot so I play in the snow (snow!)
In a town made wicked, made from these wicked things
See the dead on the cover of a magazine
See my smile? It was born from amphetamines
Better duck 'cause it's war on my enemies
Oh God, I think I lost it, oh no
Lost some, wanna watch the rest go
A madman when I'm mixed with SoCo
And who would've thought a man could sink to so low?
Now who wants to die from the Mossberg shotty?
Putting holes in the hotel lobby
All you fake bitches are just another hobby
And I'll let you dig where I dump your body

Danny: What would you do if I told you I hate you?
What would you do if your life's on the line?
What would you say if I told you I hate you?
I got something that'll blow your mind, mind

Charlie Scene: You know I got a grenade and it's got your name on it
I'mma spit on your grave and engrave a dick on it
People say I'm insane and to put the breaks on it
Let me buy you a drink, how 'bout a roofie, gin, and tonic?
Yeah, Charlie Scene seems to be so hated
It's just me being intoxicated
'Cause being sober's so overrated
Hollywood Undead, what have you created?
I know that we have never really met before
But, tell me, does this rag smell like chloroform?
You know that I'm the reason people lock their doors
But I got nothing but time so I'mma wait on the porch
You've got nowhere to run too so don't try hiding
'Cause I'm known to be like Jack Nicholson from "The Shining"
Yeah, I'm breaking your door down so don't try fighting
Yeah, you gotta keep 'em fed or the dead keep biting

Danny: What would you do if I told you I hate you?
What would you do if your life's on the line?
What would you say if I told you I hate you?
I got something that'll blow your mind, mind

Goodnight, sleep tight
Don't let the dead bite
Wrap a rope around your head and watch you as you take flight

J-Dog: You better check twice, look under your bed
Turn on your nightlight and cover up your head
'Cause we do exist and there's no need to pretend
That you're not afraid of meeting the Undead
Red, redrum when you look into these eyes
Say goodnight 'cause it's almost your bed time
Buckle up 'cause it's time to fly
You got a first-class ticket to Colombia neck ties
Take a seat, you can sit in the front row
The voice in your head is just me in your headphones
Everybody knows that we're the devil's heroes
Come and get a ticket, follow me to the creep show

Danny: What would you do if I told you I hate you?
What would you do if your life's on the line?
What would you say if I told you I hate you?
I got something that'll blow your mind, mind

Goodnight, sleep tight
Don't let the dead bite
Wrap a rope around your head and watch you as you take flight

Goodnight, sleep tight
Don't let the dead bite
Wrap a rope around your head and watch you as you take flight

Background vocals

  • Griffin Boice says "don't let the dead bite" and "watch you as you take flight" behind Danny.
  • Griffin Boice says "look under your bed", "of meeting the Undead", "to Columbian neckties", "me in your headphones", "devil's heroes", and "follow me to the creep show" behind J-Dog.

Demo

  • The demo version of the song features a different instrumental.
  • Johnny 3 Tears raps using the "auto-tuned" voice he used during Swan Songs.
  • Johnny says "Oh God, I think I lost it all, no" instead of "Oh God, I think I lost it, oh no."
  • When Johnny says "Now who wants to die from the Mossberg shotty?" and "Putting holes in the hotel lobby," the words "shotty" and "lobby" aren't echoed in the background.
  • When Charlie Scene says "People say I'm insane and to put the brakes on it," his vocals don't scratch like they do on the original version.
  • Every time Charlie and J-Dog use a rhyming word, their voices use the "auto-tuned" feature that Johnny's does.
