Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh don't you see what I mean

Gotta get away
Holy Diver-yeah

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you

(Look out!)
Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light
Oh we will pray it's all right

Gotta get away-get away

Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel-yeah
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel

(Say!)
Holy Diver
You're the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

(Jump-Jump!)
Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he's mean
Some light can never be seen-yeah

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me

(No-no!)
Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh don't you see what I mean

Gotta get away-get away-gotta get away-get away-yeah
Holy Diver
Soul surviver
You're the man who's clean
Holy Diver
Holy Diver
You're the cat in the blue comin' after you
Holy Diver
Holy Diver-yeah-all right
Get away-get away-get away
Holy Diver
Holy Diver
Holy Diver
