LyricsEdit

Oh yeah, yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Ooh yeah

You walk through the subway,
His eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you,
He lunges prepared for attack

Scream for mercy,
He laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you,
His blood-lust defies all his needs

My innocent victims
Are slaughtered with wrath and despise
The mocking religion of hatred
That burns in the night

I have no-one,
I'm bound to destroy
All this greed
A voice inside me,
Compelling to satisfy me
Ha ha ha ha ha ha

I can see,
What a life's meant to be
And you'll never know
How I came to foresee, see, see

My faith in believing is stronger
Than lifelines and ties
With the glimmer of metal
My moment is ready to strike

Death call arises,
A scream breaks the still of the night
Another tomorrow,
Remember to walk in the light

I have found you,
And now there is no place to run
Excitement shakes me,
Oh God help me what have I done?
Ooh yeah, I've done it again

You walk through the subway,
His eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you,
He lunges prepared for attack

Scream for mercy,
He laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you,
My blood-lust defies all my needs
Ooh look out, I'm coming for you
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ow ow
