I'm looking for a dirty job tonight,
Bon Jovi is on the radio and I'm on fire.
Sirens are tearing down the sky,
As I drive my life is falling.

Now I lay half-dead, 
On the side of the road.
When I see a cold breath coming out of the storm,
Is it fake or real,
When I touch your skin? 
Open up your heart and let me in.

I run away.
Forget my name,
It's just a memory.

I'm doing this for you.
'Cause we share the same blood.
Rust and fractures,
On Murder Avenue. 
Correct me if I'm wrong,
But your doubts are pretty strong.
Why do I still bleed,
On Murder Avenue?

I'm dealing with dangerous games tonight. 
I think about the bodies I'll have to hide.
Remembering the days we use to smile,
As I drive, that world is falling.

Now I'm digging the grave.
The lake is watching.
I'm gonna pray to my lord.
They're after me.
Is it fake or real,
When I touch your skin?
Open up your fuckin' mouth and let me in.

I run away.
Forget my name,
It's just a memory.

I'm doing this for you.
'Cause we share the same blood.
Rust and fractures,
On Murder Avenue. 
Correct me if I'm wrong,
But your doubts are pretty strong.
Why do I still bleed,
On Murder Avenue?

[musical break]

I'm doing this for you.
'Cause we share the same blood.
Rust and fractures,
On Murder Avenue. 
Correct me if I'm wrong,
But your doubts are pretty strong.
Why do I still bleed,
On Murder....

I'm doing this for you.
'Cause we share the same blood.
Rust and fractures,
On Murder Avenue. 
Correct me if I'm wrong,
But your doubts are pretty strong.
Why do I still bleed,
On Murder Avenue?

    General CommentSeems to me it generally refers to a situation in which someone made a bad choice on behalf of someone close (cos we share the same blood)...yet after suffering a lot in the act (as I lay half dead) the person loved still does not approve/like the singer.(open up your heart and let me in)

    In the song he has committed murder (hiding the bodies) and there is a search after him (sirens tearing down the sky)

    He accepts the only thing left is to move on and hope the loved person forgets about all of it. (I run away, forget my name, it's just a memory)
