There's nowhere else I can run to,
She's wretched but she comforts, me
After everyone goes home, she's always there for me!
And when the sun goes hellbound and the moon goes resurrect the night,
I'll hide within her, not much good has come out of 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 RE-TURN to Hell and back!
Straight to hell and back!
Straight Down!

A Lonely light in a window,
Just longing for some company,
Tragic, heartless and Hateful
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 RE-TURN 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 follow my footsteps to thee walk of hell

They walk the path

Yeahhhhh

(Solo)

Ooh, Yeeaahh

After everyone goes home
And I'm left here one 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 RE-TURN 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
