A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS

COPS ON THE RIVER RUN FREE / STORM COME ROLLING IN
MIGHT BE SAFE IF YOU’RE INDOORS
BUT IT’S A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS / A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS

TWO MEN RIDING THE TRAIN / SAIL INTO THE WRONG WORLD
IF YOU DON’T LOOK LIKE US YOU MUST BE LOST
IT’S A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS / A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS

THINGS THAT I RECALL / MY LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
SO MUNDANE I THOUGHT SOMEHOW
THE GUNS ARE GONNA TURN AROUND

JOHNNY SILENT TONIGHT / IS SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND?
DID YOU FORSAKE A FRIEND FOR A LIAR?
WELL, IT’S A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS / A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS

THINGS THAT I RECALL / WHEN IT ALL CAME TO AN END
NO HOLLYWOOD REVENGE COULD BE FOUND
BUT THE GUNS ARE GONNA TURN AROUND

YEAH, YOU’RE RIGHT, YOU’RE RIGHT / BLAME THE SUN FOR THE MOON
YOU’RE MUCH SMARTER THAN ME, NOW, AIN’T YOU CLYDE?
WELL, IT’S A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS / A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS
SOMETIMES WHEN YOU’RE DOWN / YOU FIND THAT YOU’RE UP
A COP IS ONLY AS STRONG AS HIS GUN
IT’S A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS / A BAD NIGHT FOR THE BIRDS

THINGS THAT I RECALL / MY LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
SO MUNDANE I THOUGHT SOMEHOW
THE GUNS ARE GONNA TURN AROUND
THINGS THAT I RECALL / MY LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
SO MUNDANE I THOUGHT SOMEHOW
THE GUNS ARE GONNA TURN AROUND
