"Caffeine" is the theme played when Team CFVY arrives in the episode "Breach" during Volume 2 of RWBY. It was also used in the Volume 3 Trailer.

CompositionEdit

"Caffeine" is an energetic rock song, featuring several heavily distorted guitars backed by bass and drums. The song features vocals from three principal vocalists: Jeff Williams, Casey Lee Williams and Lamar Hall. Jeff and Casey each take a turn singing a verse and chorus. The second chorus is followed by a short guitar solo and Lamar's rap verse, which leads back into a final chorus sung by both Casey and Jeff.

The version featured on the album differs slightly from the one featured in the episode "Breach". The album features backing synthesizers and additional background vocals, neither of which are present in the episode version.

LyricsEdit

Listen up, strap in, notify your next of kin,
You're about to take a ride a little on the blazing side,
Guzzle down your Red Bull, you're gonna need a bucket full,
You're watching me accelerate and tear apart the interstate.

A certified monster I'm an absolute trip,
Like Otis Redding, hard to handle so you better get a grip,
A super-fast, superfly, bonafide wise guy.
Call the morgue and say goodbye, write your will; it's time to die.

Caffeine. I'm caffeine.
Caffeine. I'm caffeine.

I'm a bad dream.
I'm a rad scene.
I'm a tad mean.
But I'm not afraid to take you out.

I'm a cheetah on the plains, I'm the highway star,
A supersonic princess in a million dollar car,
Blood on fire pumping through my veins,
Weaving in and out while I'm bolting through the lanes,

I'm hyperdrive, overdrive, hit the gas at fifty-five,
Breakneck, trainwreck, in my presence genuflect,
Track-roundin', speed-a-soundin', 'lectrifyin', pulse-poundin',
Heart-pumpin', brain-thumpin', watch me get the party jumpin'.

Caffeine, I'm caffeine.
Caffeine, I'm caffeine.

I'm a bad dream.
I'm a rad scene.
I'm a tad mean.
But I'm not afraid to take you out.[1]

Yo listen up, I hope you like it hot.
Grab yourself a mug, 'cause I made a fresh pot.
Come and get a dose of my kick-ass java.
Fuelin' your addiction with this thick black lava.

We can do up an espresso, or the cappuccino way.
Sure to get your fix, venti or grande.
Sugar, Splenda, Equal, maybe Sweet'N Low.
Everybody's happy when they hanging with Joe; let's go.

Caffeine, I'm caffeine.
Caffeine, I'm caffeine.

I'm a bad dream.
I'm a rad scene.
I'm a tad mean.
But I'm not afraid to take you out.
