It fade to black…

It’a a blackout baby, it’s a blackout baby, it’s a blackout baby

Have you heard the news?

That new old school (x2)

It’s a blackout!  Aahww!

Sometimes you get just what you want

And sometimes you get just what you need

You poison the mind you poison the well

But the body will fall and fade to black

Now I had enough of troubles you see

I am the true King Of Pain

So haven’t you heard, heard the news

So I bring to you a new old school!

 

It’a a blackout baby, it’s a blackout baby, it’s a blackout baby

Have you heard the news?

That new old school (x2)

 

While caught up in this crisis you see

But they don’t seem to bother me 

I don’t walk alone with my troubles you see

Always an angel standing over me

And I say again and again and again

Oh my friend this is something that you can rely on

I’ve seen the treasures in heaven that lasted

Forever and ever and ever and ever

 

(Rap Verse)

Lights out! Quick stop! 

Never saw it comin’ 

People in the club, stumblin’ and tumblin’

It came in a different groove reminds you of something

DJ hit the switch all the people came runnin’

Old school new school 

Electro-magnetic collide 

Everybody’s got their hands holding up the lights

Rick’s bringing something old bringing it new

Nobody saw it coming now you know what to do

Dance! Total Blackout, breaking the radio up

Mayhem and melody, mixin’ it up

Thought it was old, consider it new

Lights out strobe on and it’s coming for you

It’s a blackout baby and we’re spreading the news 

Gather round for the sound like a pulse without a fuse

Lightin’ da sky like a megaton boom!

Sounds old, but it sounds like new

Nobody saw it coming now you know what to do

Put your hands up! Throw your lanterns in the air

Be prepared son! 

Master Ricks bringing the heat! 

Cause everybody’s tired of dat autotune s***’s (rap ends)

 

Oh, Mary, Mary please

Don’t be so contrary baby

Girl I need your love right now oh baby please

Glory, glory…I know we can make it through

And even though we’re in the dark sweet baby

And when the sun goes down

There’s no need to fight

All I want to do is love you, girl

Come on baby lets take a chance

Come on baby let’s do the dance

And find our way back home…

Back home… Our way back home

 

Put your lanterns together people!

Let’s unite not fight

This is our time we can make it right

This is our time we’re not afraid of the night

Sharing and caring with all our might 

The powers that be can’t steal our light 

IT’S A BLACKOUT!!!
