Dust walks warily down the street
With the burka pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of her feet
Machine guns ready to go

Are you ready?
Are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Wallflower bites the dust
And DJ bites the dust
And now Brian is gone, and Sophie is gone
And Network just bites the dust
Stryker's gonna get you too
And another one bites the dust

How do you think we're gonna get along
Without them, when they're gone?
Yost and Kyle are trimming the fat
And now the kids stand on their own

Are you happy? Are you satisfied?
How long can they stand the heat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Another (who?) bites the dust
Another (gasp!) bites the dust...

There are plenty of ways you can hurt a book
And bring it to the ground
You can beat us
You can cheat us
You can treat us bad and leave us
When we're down
But it's working, yes it's working for them
The book is standing on its own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
Repeating the sound of the beat...
