The Skulls met the Pythons Down at the First Street station Alliances have been made in alleyways All across the nation These boys live off the milk of a silver jet And the love of sweet young women Now the Pythons are down from old Englishtown And they're looking to do some livin' Well the leader of the Pythons Is a kid they just call Zero Now Terry's pop says these kids are some kind of monsters But Terry says "No, pop, they're just plain heroes"
Zero and Terry they found a love that burnes like wildfire Now Terry's daddy understood that this Zero was no good A child, a thief and a liar Well from out of the darkness that breaks the dawn Zero rode like twilight He said "Tonight's the night, Blind Terry, come on" Terry come on, tonight is the night Pack your bags, baby
And together they ran like reindeers through the street Like tomorrow the earth was gonna catch on fire Now Terry's dad hired some troopers to kill Zero and bring Terry back home They crawled up in the night [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/zero-and-blind-terry-lyrics-bruce-springsteen.html ] Like firelight
Now snow-white troopers from the council of crime Rode silver foxes through Terry's field Oh they met the Pythons down on Route 9 but they refused to yield The Pythons fought with buzz guns And the troopers with swords like light And Zero and Terry they ran away And the gang fought all through the night
Well now some folks say Zero and Terry got away Other said they were caught and brought back But still young pilgrims to this day Go to that spot way down by the railroad track Where the Troopers met the Pythons Old timers cry on a hot August night If you look hard enough, if you try You'll catch Zero and Terry and all the Pythons
Oh just hiking them streets of the sky Just walkin', hiking the streets of the sky Just hiking the streets of the sky Hey Zero
