The Streets Come Alive

from Nitelife by Halloween Jack

/

lyrics

Sirens sing their song amongst the rain and twilight
Street lamps flicker to an eerie pulse
In every nook and cranny, in shadows so deep
Every heart in every city, thumps a darkened beat

Johnny has a crave, an addiction to feed
The alleys his office where pays his trade
He spies an awkward punter one whose easily led
For ten hollow minutes his addiction can be fed

A decadent glamour, a celebrated strife
Edgy and gritty the streets come alive
When you're on the edge, it's a way of life

Suzies a cop with eyes for a killer
Out to prove she's one of the boys
A gruesome, bloody doorway
A blade in the gutter
Another night Suzies, looking for a murderer

A decadent glamour, a celebrated strife
Edgy and gritty the streets come alive
When you're on the edge, it's a way of life
A necessary evil
Unmitigated crime

Jay walks back to see his mother
Yet to reach the age where he's a man
He feels he's alone, there's nobody to see
A shot rings out, mistaken identity

Feel they're alive, feel they're alive, feel they're, the streets are alive
Feel they're alive, feel they're alive, feel they're, the streets come alive

When you're on the edge
The streets come alive
When you're making bread
The streets come alive
When you need to run
The streets come alive
When you need to hide
The streets come alive
When you need to see
The streets come alive
When you look away
The streets come alive
When you're getting stoned
The streets come alive
Out there breaking bones
The streets come alive
When you're getting high
The streets come alive
Anything to survive
The streets come alive
When you need to see
The streets come alive
When you look away
The streets come alive
