Strung Out - Blackhawks Over Los Angeles Lyrics

Curfew tonight in Hollywood
As the insurgents drawing near
Helicopters and ecstasy
And the shot heard round the world
The camera shines for channel zero
As the cool kids running scared
The army has got a brand new toy
And they're just waiting for the word

Tonight it begins so lock your doors up tight
Blackhawks over Los Angeles

The civil strife between the left and right
As the occupation falls
The homeless have taken Beverly Hills
And there's smoke from city hall

We never have seen it coming down this way before
Blackhawks over Los Angeles

And on and on they drone
In the spotlight glare, this is crazy
All broken glass and panic attacks
Silicone and pillbox hat
There's panic in the streets tonight

Curfew tonight in Hollywood and all the sirens drawing near
Gonna call down an air strike as the shock reins clear
There's panic in the streets there's a calling on the wire
And the cameras got it all as we walk on through the fire
As a crowd begins to gather...a shot rings out

We never have seen it coming down this way before
Don't really know where else to hide

And on and on they drone
In the spotlight glare, this is crazy
All broken glass and panic attacks
Silicone and pillbox hat
There's panic in the streets tonight

Strung Out Blackhawks Over Los Angeles Comments
  1. Llama lover

    I forgot how epic this song was!

  2. Yawny_Cash

    The intro reminds me of "Polyamorous" by Breaking Benjamin

  3. TheGokuAndSonic

    Now this is good and I'm not complaining, the whole BOLA album is on here, but am I just supposed to accept the fact that I won't hear the original Calling track with the acoustic intro? Yes we have the music video, but the audio is clearly and noticably brassy and different, the 16-17 second helicopter intro and the last 6 seconds of silence at the end is clearly from the music video, and the original track used to be here until it was removed for some reason, now there's just no acoustic or the music video version

  4. Lance

    I love this.

  5. dave whlmus

  47. troodon2

    the fuck is wrong with you all! are you all that lazy? i mean, looking down in the discription doesnt make you tired does it?! if you have a fucking problem or you want more information or simply need to find lyrics THEN READ THE FUCKING DISCRIPTION! always being a bitch about completely nothing, cuz its already written in the discription! just point your eyeballs slightly downwards to find the discription, i know its exhausting but if you want something you gotta work hard for it, assholes!

  48. Jim Featherstone

    I know this from huevos 10

  70. Daniel Camacho

    wait no acoustic solo? thats the best part.

  71. nynjahbajur

    @heat4yoass you think the song sucks, yet you listen to it anyway. makes sense

  72. Espyyyyy

    Why is the beginning of the song cut away? It´s like 1 minute missing...

  73. pjecki

    this song totally sucks after 3:36

  74. Moony Moon

    @Hoskins1206 - I know, it's just an unfunny joke. It's fun to associate the number of dislikers to the lyrics of the song itself.

  75. Hoskins1206

    @Enzo000000000 That's crap .... So is all the like and dislike things envolving Bieber

  83. Darrien Craven

    @MrSkylarker89 noo waaaay. Well some of them I can see him using the slide-technique, but the long-term ones have to be double pedal, like during "I sold my voice to pay for my security..." prechorus.

  84. Metalblader83

    @ThatGirl0800 you should hear the rest of their songs, awesome!

  85. Metalblader83
