Official Lyrics

Danny: Lights out, you're talking too loud
So just shut your mouth, who the fuck are you now?
Lights out, can you feel it now?
We're calling you out, who the fuck are you now?

J-Dog: Lifestyles of the young and the reckless
Checked in the real world that don't ask questions
Dodging 'em bullets like a fucked up western
Drag you on a rope till you're choked out senseless
Kings are crowned, we're the best around
Got an underground army, yeah, we holding it down
We built our base and what we found
It takes blood and sweat and always moving a crowd
No skill when you've gone the fast way
Let me see you dance, run from the AK
Bullshitting, though he's dropping names
Till you know: what you do, it all sounds the same
A piece of advice, quit dropping mine
You'll be gone way before it even hits your time
Like a stripper in a cage making minimum wage
You'll be gone like a dollar bill hitting the stage

Danny: Lights out, you're talking too loud
So just shut your mouth, who the fuck are you now?
Lights out, can you feel it now?
We're calling you out, who the fuck are you now?

Charlie Scene: I'mma light your ass up 'cause you ain't got what it takes
Your crew is riding my nuts, they'll tell you how my dick tastes
Yeah, I'm shitfaced in all black, looking creepy
(Hahaha!)
It's Charlie Scene, this shit is way too easy
I might give it to you quick, go straight to your throat
Or put the burner in your mouth and  turn you into a ghost
All these people making music with nothing to show
Who doesn't have a band? Shit, I don't know
What kind of sane person drops his own name?
What kind of sane person boos his own band offstage?
What kind of sane person drops a verse like this?
These damn meds ain't working, I'm just too damn sick
Just you coming out here has got me provoked
Now I'mma cut your ass up like a line of coke
I'mma roll your crew up like a fat ass roach
And put you in my ashtray 'cause you just got smoked

Danny: Lights out, you're talking too loud
So just shut your mouth, who the fuck are you now?
Lights out, can you feel it now?
We're calling you out, who the fuck are you now?

Another classic case, you crash and burn
Funny Man: And it's true, you're dead wrong
It's lights out, your last song
Danny: The world has turned its face, you'll never learn
Funny Man: And it's true, you're dead wrong
It's lights out, your last song
Danny: Walls closing in, they're falling down

Da Kurlzz and Danny: Lights out, oh!
Danny: You're talking too loud
So just shut your mouth, who the fuck are you now?
Lights out, can you feel it now?
We're calling you out, who the fuck are you now?

Lights out, can you feel it now?
We're calling you out, who the fuck are you now?
Lights out, you're talking too loud
Da Kurlzz and Danny: Who the fuck are you now? Who the fuck are you now?

Lights out!

  • This song is believed by some to be a diss towards the former member, Deuce.
    • Although this has never been directly confirmed as false, the band has stated that they have not written any songs directed towards Deuce, which practically confirms this claim as false.
    • Interestingly, the line "Just you coming out here has got me provoked" is believed by many to be "Deuce, you coming out here has got me provoked," but like the first claim, this has been indirectly confirmed as false.
