"Razor Blade Alley" as written by and Lee Thompson....
Ooh, I didn't talk too much, in fact not at all
But to ask for the price, I was to be no fool
Money's no time to waste or to shoot up the wall
You got the know-how, the place, teacher take me to your school

She lead the way from the alley back to her house
Must not be seen going in, must not be seen coming out
She said I look mighty but thin, she told me
"I'm gonna give you a second helping"

Ooh, Razor Blade Alley I've been there
Razor Blade Alley neither of us cared
It was the prime time but the wrong place
It was my first time I hope, my last taste
I'm just too shy to check in
But this pain of pissing razors is cutting in, ow

Hmm, felt like a knight without shining armor on
At the time she thought she was in a dream
Floating up on cloud nine now I awake
She is nowhere, but the razor cuts deeper everywhere, ow

    MemoryI remember an interview with Lee in which he "hinted" (well it was national radio so couldn't spell it out..) that this was about him sleeping with a woman, a one night stand, which left him with an infection.... nice. great song though!

    General CommentOne of the best songs from 'One Step Beyond.'
    Perfect for a smoke-filled sleazy club.

    General CommentSleazy is the perfect word to describe this song. I'm loving the dark and mysterious vibes.
