Gamma – Razor King lyrics

There was a man
Came from my home town
Didn't have no money
He was always down
Johnny Stark that was his name
In a few short years
He was gonna rise to fame
When he was young
He'd have to steal to eat
In my shakedown bed
Shared his sleep
Late at night his papa
Would come home drunk
Shouting at his ma
And calling him a punk

I'm the Razor King
That's what I'll be
You can look out for me now
My weapons will be sharp
I'll get you in the dark again

Some years later
He'd grown up fast
He got right down to it
Didn't wanna be last
He became the leader
Of the local gang
Was singing as he went
And this is what he sang

I'm the Razor King
Oh, you can look out for me now
Johnny Stark's my name
My weapons will be sharp
I'll get you in the dark again

Some years later
His reputation spread
A man with no fear
Or so it was said
Leader of a gang
Now two thousand strong
Johnny didn't realize
That he was doing wrong
Then came the night
He was to lose his crown
Marching down main street
He was going way down
Weapons aflashing
Grit in his eye
Johnny didn't realize
He was gonna die

I'm a Razor King
Ahh, that's what I am
You can look up to me now

La la la la la la la la (etc.)
