A glint of steel
A flash of light
You know you're not going home tonight
Be it jack or switch
Doctor's or mind
Nowhere to run, everywhere you'll find
You can't escape
From the bed you've made
When your time has come, you'll accept the blade!

You're cornered in the alley way
You know you're all alone
You know it's gonna end this way
The chill goes to the bone
Now here it comes that glistening light
It goes into your side
The blackness comes
Tonight's the night
The blade is gonna ride

'cause you're under the blade
Ohhh
You're under the blade

It's not another party head
This time you cannot rise
Your hands are tied, your legs are strapped
A light shines in your eyes
You faintly see a razor's edge
You open your mouth to cry
You know you can't
It's over now
The blade is gonna ride

'cause you're under the blade
Ohhh
You're under the blade

A glint of steel
A flash of light
You know you're not going home tonight
Be it jack or switch
Doctor's or mind
Nowhere to run, everywhere you'll find
You can't escape
From the bed you've made
When your time has come, you'll accept the blade!

You've tried to make it to the front
You're pinned against the side
A monster stands before you now
Its mouth is open wide
The lights go on, the night explodes
It tears into your mind
When the night does end, you'll come again
The blade is gonna ride

'cause you're under the blade
Ohhh
You're under the blade
Here it comes baby
Whoaaaaaaahhhh...
You're goin' down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down...

    I saw these guys play this song back in the day at a place called "beggar's opera" in queens, ny... Back then we were "told" it was about "a guy, a girl and a switchblade"... So, now in front of congress, it's about "surgery"... Oh what a tangled web we weave... Ja.. Aja
