Billy's got a gun, he's on the run
Confusion in his mind, the blind leads the blind
Yeah, Billy's got a gun, he's gonna shoot you down
He's got evil in his eyes, got a reason to despise
There's danger in the air

Can you feel it in the air?
(There's danger in the air)
Danger
(Such a strange emotion)
Can you feel it in the air?
(Oh, yeah)

Oh, he was locked inside a room without a door
His innocence he suffered for, in a world of black and white
They were wrong and he was right
Just looking for a clue, it's a nightmare come true
He's going underground to track that danger down
Oh, Billy, and why you got that gun?

Can you feel it in the air?
(There's danger in the air)
Danger
(Such a strange emotion)
Can you feel it in the air?
(Oh yeah, oh Billy)

Never give him an even break
Gettin' caught is the chance you take
It could be your last mistake
(You could be so hopeless)

As a bird with a broken wing
Like a sheep in a lions den
Gonna fall but you won't know when
(He's gonna get you)

You hear footsteps in the night, see shadows on the wall
And the ghostly sound of silence, as the mist begins to fall
Then a scream rang out like thunder but the lightening was too late
As the rain came down on the crimson ground was the hand of fate
And a crowd of people gathered 'round but Billy couldn't wait

Can you feel it in the air?
(There's danger in the air)
Danger
(Such a strange emotion)
Can you feel it in the air?
(Oh yeah, yeah, Billy's on the run)

(Aah, you better run)
Never give him an even break
(Better run)
Gettin' caught is the chance you take
(You better run)
It could be your last mistake
(Yeah, Billy's got a gun)

As a bird with a broken wing
(Oh, Billy)
As a sheep in the lions den
(Oh, Billy)
Gonna fall but you won't know when
(Yeah, the heat is on, he's gonna get you)

Bang, bang
