Billy's got a gun, he's on the run Confusion in his mind, the blind leads the blind Yeah, Billy's got a gun, he's gonna shoot ya down He's got evil in his eyes, got a reason to despise There's danger in the air
Can you feel it in the air? Danger (Such a strange emotion) Can you feel it in the air?
Oh he was locked inside a room without a door His innocence he suffered for In a world of black and white, they were wrong and he was right Just looking for a clue, it's a nightmare come true He's going underground to track that danger down Oh Billy, why you got that gun?
Never give him an even break Gettin' caught is the chance you take It could be your last mistake (You could be so helpless) As a bird with a broken wing Like a sheep in a lion's den Gonna fall but you won't know when
You hear footsteps in the night, see shadows on the wall And the ghastly sound of silence, as the mist begins to fall Then a scream rang out like thunder, but the lightning was too late
As the rain came down on the crimson ground It was the hand of fate And a crowd of people gathered round, but Billy couldn't wait
