The situation's got me rattled
I twist and turn late at night
This whole world's up in shambles
Who's the one to make it right

Missing persons lost in action (action)
Forgotten victims of the night (victims of the night)
They're making crime the main attraction (attraction)
They're making everyone uptight
They're all looking for a fight

In this confusion from day to day
Sometimes fear just makes no sense
In this crossfire I see one way
In self defense

You'll take your chances, Mr. Policeman (policeman)
You're like a cat with thirteen lives (cat with thirteen lives)
Your law and order is our lifeline (lifeline)
Through the danger, you'll survive
I do what I need to stay alive

In this confusion from day to day
Sometimes fear just makes no sense
In this crossfire I see one way
In self defense

In self (self) defense
In self (self) defense

In this confusion from day to day
Sometimes fear just makes no sense
In this crossfire I see one way
In self defense
