Billy's got a gun, he's on the run
Confusion in his mind, the blind leads the blind
Oh billy got's 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 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 goin' underground to track that danger down
Oh billy, hey 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 billy!

Never give him an even break
Gettin' caught is the chance you take
It could be your last mistake
You could be so helpless
As a bird with a broken wing
Like a sheep in a lion's 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 lightning was too late
As the rain came down on the crimson ground was the hand of fate
And a crowd of people gathered, 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?
Yeah, billy's got a gun

Oh you better run
Never give him an even break - better run
Gettin' caught is the chance you take - you better run
Yeah billy's got a gun!
As a bird with a broken wing - oh billy
Like a sheep in a lion's den - oh billy
Gonna fall but you won't know when - yeah billy's out
He's gonna get you

Yeah!

Bang bang!
