It’s dark in Steeltown, I think I might crack
The street’s too quiet, got to watch my back
These strangers attack , if you make a mistake
And it’s so hard to catch a break
When darkness hits town, you don’t hang around
Hear decay make its lonely sound?
It’s dark in Steeltown, I cant find The Way
Don’t even know if it’s night or day
I heard a moaning like hers, but she just wasn’t there
Can’t remember -- should I care?
My flesh is on fire, burning like leaves
and the air is too hot to breathe
It’s dark in Steeltown, I’m starting to rot
Feel like burning everything that I got
And heading to Spain, where Caminos can heal
and the waters aren’t victims of steel
Where the dark winds can’t blow, black crap on my clothes
And a lover might await this rose
It’s dark in Steeltown, I’m broken and torn
Body’s aching and my soul is worn
It’s dark in Steeltown, but I harbour no scorn
She’s just an old friend -- the place I was born
