And a blade shining oh so bright
Thereís evil in the air and thereís thunder in the sky
And a killers on the bloodshot streets
Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy, down in the gutter

 Oh baby youíre the only thing in this whole world
 thatís pure and good      and right
 and wherever you are and wherever you go
 thereís always gonna be some light
 but I gotta get out I gotta break it out now
 before the final crack of dawn
 so we gotta make the most of this one night together
 when itís over you know
 weíll both be so alone

 Like a bat out of hell
