I'm ridin through the middle of some god forsaken town
Dark figures from the shadows, theyre tryin to cut me down
Some hero of the hour needs a rival of some kind
So dont talk to me right now, I've got survival on my mind

It might seem a little strange to you
But babe I got some things to do
Things for me that just cant wait
Dont let your love turn to hate
I got nothin in the world against you babe
But its gonna be a rough night out tonight
I got a feelin Im fightin for my life

Some street gang in the alley is tryin to tan my hide
I give aem all my money but theyre still not satisfied
Theyre callin out some names but it dont reflect on you
So dont bother me Im tryin to makeem see my point of view

It might seem a little strange to you
But babe I got some things to do
Things for me that just cant wait
Dont let your love turn to hate
I got nothin in the world against you babe
Its gonna be a rough night out tonight
I know the kung fu and Im fightin for my life

They say those silly phantoms are only in your mind
But I swear that even some of them get out from time to time
Some are rough and some are rowdy, some are fast to make the scene
But the ones that move so slow, theyre the ones that treat you mean

It might seem a little strange to you
But babe I got some things to do
Things for me that just cant wait
Dont let your love turn to hate
I got nothin in the world against you babe
Its gonna be a rough night out tonight
I better meditate you know Im fightin for my life

I used to read the Bible and Paradise Lost
now it looks like everybodys been gettin double-crossed
I dont mean to crash the cymbals, I dont mean to beat the drum
I dont wanna waste your time, you know Id rather save you some

It might seem a little strange to you
But babe I got some things to do
Things for me that just cant wait
Dont let your love turn to hate
I got nothin in the world against you babe
Its gonna be a rough night out tonight
I better meditate you know Im fightin for my life
My eyes are open, Im fightin for my life
