This song has been covered by Matthew Ryan under the title "Something in the Night".
I'm riding down Kingsley, figuring I'll get a drink
Well, I turn the radio up loud so I don't have to think
And I take her to the floor looking for a moment when the world seems right
And I tear into the guts of something in the night

You're born with nothing and better off that way
Soon as you've got something they send someone to try and take it away
Well, you can ride this road 'til dawn without another human being in sight
Well, just kids wasted on something in the night

Well, nothing is forgotten or forgiven when it's your last time around
And I got stuff running 'round my head that I just can't live down

When we found the things we loved, they were crushed and dying in the dirt
We tried to pick up the pieces and get away without getting hurt
But they caught us at the state line, burned our cars in one last fight
And left us running, burned and blind chasing something in the night
