Skulking in the mean streets whispering in the halls 
Redlight bandits on the corner give no quarter calls 
Infectious garbage fills the streets and in their eyes you know 
A thin blue line bends and breaks stop the overflow 
(1) Fan the flames of the city's heat 
In dark corners hiding never seen 
Desperation and the trouble flares 
Alarm guns ring running scared 
And you're long gone, down in this hell 
Long gone down in this hell 
So baby won't you hold me tight 
Let your softness fill my night 
We've got a dream don't let it slip away 
'In your eyes I can see the fear 
This town never sheds a tear 
We're gonna be /out someday/walking away 
Keep on looking for a holy one, 
Some kind of hero or a prophet to come 
Visionaries dance your night away 
There's no tomorrow living for today 
But you're long gone down in this hell 
Long gone down in this hell 
I saw the stars come out tonight so lonely and immune 
Summer rain kissed the streets that bleed like open wounds 
Patrol cars sweep the avenues down on Forty Eighth 
While faces in dark doorways wait around the hate 
(1) Repeat 
(2) Baby better walk away 
Baby better walk away 
We'll be busting out someday 
(2) repeat
