Art attacks from subway walls Sprayed like bullets into concrete face Everywhere you turn, knuckles are crackin'
Suburban monkeys break ghetto habits Body guns loaded for a dime See `em shed their celebrity skin For a life of trash and crime
[CHORUS:] Cool Zero You want to know where the wild ones go Cool Zero You want to know where the bodies are burned Crawlin' under every rock, you gotta see what time forgot Cool Zero (Cool Zero) Cool Zero
Nothin' stops the hit parade Money makers will be shaken down Everywhere you go, fingers are snappin' Commercial prophets shout revolution Throwin' dirt upon a good mans name Watch `em sell his soul for shoes And dance upon his grave
[CHORUS] In this junk food civilization They will eat and not think twice For a dance in the dragons jaws They will gladly pay the price An' eat their fill - Ooh, Ooh - Hey
Headlines turn in violent days Run like blood across the printed page Everywhere you look, atoms are smashin' Politicians smilin' for the camera And the pictures make you want to scream Maybe baby, we'll just play it cool Like Elvis at 19
