Lyrics

[Verse 1] He looked a lot like Che Guevara Drove a diesel van Kept his gun in quiet seclusion Such a humble man The only survivor of the National People's Gang [Chorus] Panic in Detroit I asked for an autograph He wanted to stay home I wish someone would phone Panic in Detroit [Verse 2] He laughed at accidental sirens That broke the evening gloom The police had warned of repercussions They followed none too soon A trickle of strangers were all that were left alive [Chorus] Panic in Detroit I asked for an autograph He wanted to stay home I wish someone would phone Panic in Detroit [Bridge] Putting on some clothes, I made my way to school And I found my teacher crouching in his overalls I screamed and ran to smash my favorite slot machine And jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights {Verse 3} Having scored a trillion dollars Made a run back home Found him slumped across the table A gun and me alone I ran to the window, looked for a plane or two [Chorus] Panic in Detroit He'd left me an autograph "Let me collect dust." I wish someone would phone Panic in Detroit Panic in Detroit {Instrumental Outro}
