The sirens are screaming
and the fires are howling
Way down in the valley tonight

There’s a man in the shadows
with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright

There’s evil in the air
and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets

And down in the tunnel
where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat

Oh baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
That’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before
the gates of heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you

I’m gonna hit the highway
like a battering ram
On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot
and the engine is hungry
And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows
in this rotten old hole
And everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks
And nothing really rolls
And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned
if I never get out
And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with any other beat
I got left in my heart
You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned
you know I wanna be damned
Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned
you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night
Dancing through the night
Dancing through the night with you

Oh baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
That’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone

Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before
the gates of heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before
the gates of heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself
Tearing up the road
Faster than any other boy has ever gone
And my skin is rough but my soul is ripe
And no one’s gonna stop me now
I gotta make my escape
But I can’t stop thinking of you
And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late
I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
And the last thing I see is my heart
Still beating
Breaking out of my body
And flying away
Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
And the last thing I see is my heart
Still beating
Still beating
Breaking out of my body and flying away
Like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell

    General CommentAwsome song.. with quite a few things to interpret inside but ill leave that to you as I find that each person should interpret things in his own way.. no use only reading what other people say all the time and making no personal meaning.
