Lyrics: 

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

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

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

Putting on some clothes
I made my way to school
And found my teacher
Crouching in his overalls
I screamed and ran
To smash my favourite slot machine
And jumped the silent cars
That slept at traffic lights

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

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