Well it was dark at midnight
There was hardly any moon
And no one really saw much
No one was really sure
But something didn't seem right
No things seemed kinda queer
The roar turned into whispers
Everyone stood there

With the sound to split the night
Like it hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Strangers in the night

Well I didn't see them shotguns
Oh I didn't see no knife
But I saw this crazy black guy
With a demon in his eyes
And I heard him say "white man"
I've seen that silver cue
You don't remember me well
But I remember you

Well the sound just split the night
Like it hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Strangers in the night

Well the knife just left his fingers
As the black guy took his aim
White guys head exploded
Black guy howled in pain
And then everybody scattered
I heard some woman scream
"God damn you old black bastard
Well you've blown away my dreams"

Well the sound just split the night
Like hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Strangers in the night
Strangers in the night
Strangers in the night
