  • 2 Just a Bullet Away
  • 3 Hell and Back
  • 4 Rebel of Babylon
  • There is nowhere else I can run to
    She is wretched but she comforts me

    After everyone goes home
    She's always there for me

    And when the sun goes hellbound
    And the moon does resurrect the night
    I'll hide within her
    Not much good has come out the light

    After everyone goes home
    And I'm left here on my own
    I will run straight to Hell and back

    Straight to Hell and back

    When they turn out all their lights
    And I'm left to brood at night
    Always return to Hell and back

    Straight to Hell and back
    Straight down yeah

    A lonely light in a window
    Just longing for some company

    Tragic, heartless and hateful
    But there's nothing as willing as she

    And when the night has fallen
    It falls hard and then it all begins

    When she starts her calling
    I feel my darkness growing from within

    After everyone goes home
    And I'm left here on my own
    I will run straight to Hell and back

    Straight to Hell and back

    When they turn out all their lights
    And I'm left to brood at night
    Always return to Hell and back

    Straight to Hell and back
    Straight to Hell and back
    I will run straight to Hell and back

    I become two
    We become one
    Unbridled... unequaled... unholy... undone

    The path is cut deep
    The path is worn well
    I'll follow my footsteps to the warmth of Hell

    The warmth of Hell

    After everyone goes home
    And I'm left here on my own
    I will run straight to Hell and back

    Straight to Hell and back
    Straight to Hell and back

    When they turn out all their lights
    And I'm left to brood at night
    Always return to Hell and back

    Return to Hell and back
    Straight to Hell and back
    Straight to Hell and back
    I will run straight to Hell and back

    Straight down
