Panic in Detroit.

{c: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.

Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph
He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone.
Panic in Detroit.

Having scored a million dollars, made a run back home.
Found him slumped across a table.  A gun and me alone.
I ran to the window.  Looked for a plane or two.

Panic in Detroit.  He'd left me an autograph.
Let me collect dust.  I wish someone would phone.
Panic in Detroit.
