No matter what you think you pull you'll find it's not enough
No matter who you think you know you won't get through
It's a given L.A law, someone's faster on the draw
No matter where you hide I'm comin' after you, yeah

No matter how the race is run it always ends the same
Another room without a view awaits downtown
You can shake me for a while, live it up in style
No matter what you do I'm gonna take you down

Shakedown, breakdown, takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted
Let down your guard honey
Just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted

This is a town where everyone is reachin' for the top
This is a place where second best will never do
It's okay to want to shine but once you step across that line
No matter where you hide I'm comin' after you

Shakedown, breakdown, takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted
Shakedown, breakdown honey
Just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted, oh you're busted

Shakedown, breakdown, takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted
Shakedown, breakdown honey
Just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted

Shakedown, breakdown, takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted
Let down your guard honey
Just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown, takedown, oh you're busted

Shakedown, breakdown, takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted
Let down your guard honey
Just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown, takedown, you're busted
