Here at home, in this steeple made of chrome, above a city of steel, I've chosen bats over people 'cause I never did like the way humans made me feel.

So we sleep all day.
And we rise at night.
And we spread our wings.
And take into the skies.
And when the people all stop and stare and say, "Why you gotta be like that?" I just look 'em in the eye and tell 'em I was raised by bats!

When I was young, I was feeble, and it stung when they pushed me down.
I was so hated by these people, that I knew I had to do what I could to get out of that town.
So I ran away to this sacred place and was taken in by creatures of the night.

Now when the people all stop and stare and say, "Why you gotta dress like that?" I just look 'em in the eye and tell 'em I was raised by bats!
When the people all stop and stare and say, "Why you gotta be like that?" I just look 'em in the eye and tell 'em I was raised by bats!

Those dark days seem far away.
I've risen to a better place.
So do like me - follow the dream.
Like that, just throw your old life away, and get raised by bats!

So we sleep all day.
And we rise at night.
And we spread our wings.
And take into the skies.

We do it all our way, live our lives like that, 'cause there's no one here to fill our heads with lies.

And when the people all stop and stare and say, "Why you gotta be like that?"
When the people all stop and stare and say, "Why you gotta dress like that?"
When the people all stop and stare and say, "Why you gotta be like that?"
I just punch 'em in the eye and I bite 'em on the thigh and I kick 'em in their ass where the sun don't shine.
I look 'em in the eye and tell 'em I was raised by bats!
I just look 'em in the eye and tell 'em I was raised by bats!
I was raised by bats!
I was raised by bats!
