"Youth Nabbed as Sniper" as written by and Chris Stein....
Don't look in here, yeah.
Sundown finds him out of town on the overpass,
His inner self glued to his .22.
Dirty metal in the speed of night, lights and broken glass.
My heart can destroy all I see.
Moving streets all make me lonely!
Come to me and be mine only.
I can hide us far from sight, but you must wait and I must fight this nothingness.
Walls, I see my little room...
I hear my parent's friends.
I hope that my actions make amends!
I would like to kill for love but I don't know how...
Here I lie so high above the crowd.
Busy streets all make me lonely!
Come to me and be mine only.
I can move us through the night, but you must wait and I must fight this emptiness.
Black top burns with silent screams.
Others stop my dreams.
Lightning crash! crash! crash!
Fear causes some to live, others die real cool.
I died in the evening after school.
Be mine only.
Be my own.
Be mine only.
Be my own.

    General CommentDouble meaning happening here - something for which Blondie is justifyably famous. The haunting chorus of "Come to me and be mine only" is both heard and spoken by the Sniper. He is calling out to his victim, but at the same time hearing the voices strong in his head. He is in darkness. He is in pain. Voices, real and imagined, place him there. He gives the same to those he calls.
