Finger Eleven - Paralyzer

I hold on so nervously
To me and my drink,
I wish it was cooling me

But so far has not been good,
It's been shitty
And I feel awkward, as I should

This club has got to be
The most pretentious thing,
Since I thought you and me

Well, I am imagining
A dark lit place,
Or your place, or my place

Well, I'm not paralyzed,
But I seem to be struck by you,
I want to make you move
Because you're standing still

If your body matches
What your eyes can do,
You'll probably move right through
Me on my way to you

I hold out for one more drink,
Before I think
I'm looking too desperately

But so far has not been fun,
I should just stay home
If one thing really means one,
This club will hopefully
Be closed in three weeks,
That would be cool with me

Well, I'm still imagining
A dark lit place,
Or your place, or my place

Well, I'm not paralyzed
But I seem to be struck by you
I want to make you move,
Because you're standing still

If your body matches
What your eyes can do,
You'll probably move right through
Me on my way to you

We'll, I'm not paralyzed
But I seem to be struck by you,
I want to make you move
Because you're standing still

If your body matches
What your eyes can do,
You'll probably move right through
Me on my way to you!

I'm not paralyzed
But I seem to be struck by you
I want to make you move,
Because you're standing still

If your body matches
What your eyes can do,
You'll probably move right through
Me on my way to you

You'll probably move right through
Me on my way to you! (x2)

"Paralyzer" is the first single from alternative rock band Finger Eleven's fifth album "Them vs. You vs. Me". It was released in March 2007. Finger Eleven's frontman Scott Anderson has said that the single has a feel distinct from the rest of Finger Eleven's music, possessing more of a "dance rock" feel. A radio edit version exists, with the guitar intro dropped. The song received high airplay in both the United States and Canada, and was performed live on the March 14, 2007 episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and again ten months later on January 9, 2008, in a testament to the longevity of the single's success. The song has surpassed "One Thing" to be Finger Eleven's most successful single. The single has three versions. One is the original CD version, while the other two are radio edit versions, in which the line containing the word "shitty" is either censored or replaced with "It's not been fun." The song alludes to the band's prior hit "One Thing" with the line "I should just stay home, if one thing really means one"; in addition, the recurring guitar riff quotes The Cars' "Moving in Stereo" and Motley Crue's "Too Young to Fall in Love." The song is played during the New York Islanders warm-ups at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.[citation needed] It has been featured on The CW's Gossip Girl & Greek. It is also a playable song in the rhythm game Rock Revolution by Konami; although the game's producers have stated that all songs will be covers, the song is one of two for which the game uses the original master recording (the other being Given Up by Linkin Park).
