Lyric music video

Lyrics

Touch the pleasure
Taste the pain
Turn it upside down
As the world spins round
Would you make my day?
This is getting explosive
This is getting too hot
You're the type I need
You could murder me
In the name of rock

Maybe it’s for the good of mankind

Sound the alarm, sound the alarm
Going in hard 'cause we ain't too proud to be begging like that
Sound the alarm, sound the alarm
Get in the car 'cause we ain't too proud to be begging like that
Ooh

Clutch under pressure
Ice in my veins
Maybe all my flaws give me my powers
I was born this way
I go way too fast
Runaway car crash
Spitting out gas
Stars like the night pitch black
We tripped all the wires
Lit all the fires
Sniffed out the liars
I wonder why

Maybe it's for the good of mankind

Sound the alarm, sound the alarm
Going in hard 'cause we ain't too proud to be begging like that
Sound the alarm, sound the alarm
Get in the car 'cause we ain't too proud to be begging like that
Ooh

Maybe it's for the
Maybe it's for the
Maybe it’s for the good of man

Sound the alarm, sound the alarm
Going in hard 'cause we ain't too proud to be begging like that
Sound the alarm, sound the alarm
Get in the car 'cause we ain't too proud to be begging like that
Ooh
