"Time to Kill" as written by and Cooper/roberts....
Well, I was born on a dead end street
I'm cold-blooded but I always felt the heat
All my friends are dead and gone
If there's a hell, I'm one step closer to it
Somewhere I crossed the line
Somewhere I'm lost in time
I lost my soul and now I'm losing my mind

Time to kill
I've had enough of all of your lies
I only got time to kill
You've seen the fire in my eyes
I only got time to kill

I spend my days counting bricks on the wall
And every night I hear those sirens call
I sink deeper into a convict's sleep
And dream about the day I'm gonna hit the streets
One time I cursed the man
He laughed and broke my hand
I'm gonna take that fist and make him understand
I'll make him understand

I had enough of long goodbyes
I only got time to kill
I feel the fire in my eyes
I only got time to kill

You know I always thought there was time enough to win the game
But now I know the times are rough and seasons change
Oh times are strange

Somewhere I crossed the line
Somewhere I'm lost in time
I lost my soul and now I'm losing my mind

Time to kill
I've had enough of all of your lies
I only got time to kill
You've seen the fire in my eyes
I only got time to kill
I've had enough of long goodbyes
I've only got time to kill
I feel the fire in my eyes
I've only got time to kill

    My OpinionI believe this song is about a petty crook who has gone to prison.
    While in prison (perhaps solitary confinement) he starts to loose his grip with reality and is hell bent for bloody vengeance (hence..time to kill) against a former girlfriend (stripper/prostitute Mary Gail) who has abandoned the relationship due to his continued incarceration. Just my take on the song. True gem of a tune on a highly underrated album called Raise Your Fist N Yell by Alice Cooper along with amazingly talented guitarist and body builder, Kane Roberts and Kip Winger on bass....yes Kip Winger. Alice gave Kip his start in Rock n Roll. Of course he went off with some 17 year old chick and wrote a song about it becoming famous for it in his own right, but that's another story....
