LyricsEdit

Album versionEdit

'Cause I want my ass
Shit one more time

You must be upgraded
You must be upgraded
You must be upgraded

Well it's 2012
Think we're going to hell
You must be upgraded
Put me under your acid spell
You must be upgraded
'Cause I want my mind to be completely toast
You must be upgraded
When the tides destroy the whole West Coast
You must be upgraded
'Cause I want my ass to be jumpin' too
You must be upgraded
Oh my, my and a boo hoo-hoo

You must be upgraded
You must be upgraded
You must be upgraded
You must be upgraded

So with the world ablaze
I'm in an acid haze
You must be upgraded
And though the end is near
I have no fear
You must be upgraded
What you do for me is not the same
You must be upgraded
I'm having fun while you're having pain ha

2012
Good morning to the New Year's light
Just save yourself
Oh I'll meet you on the other side
Is this the endin'
The curtain call the fall of man
Is this the endin'
Or are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start again
Are we gonna start

You must be upgraded
Oh my, my and a boo hoo-hoo
You must be upgraded
Oh my, my and a boo hoo-hoo
You must be upgraded
Oh my, my and a boo hoo-hoo
You must be upgraded

With the oh sorry
