​Vigilante Killer

This song is by Riot and appears on the album Born In America (1984).

Oh walking through the streets
Taking life in your hands
The boy's on the corner's sixteen but a man
He may ask for money with a flick knife
Make a stand he doesn't even know
He walked right into your hands
He knows he's doing wrong
But he's sure he's doing right

The punks would stop their killing if someone put up a fight
New York Central Park ain't no place to cruise at night
He's looking for blood bet there's more spilled tonight
Vigilante killer he's a vengaence morbid man
Vigilante killer but they don't understand

The TV says he's killing
But they love him just the same
The crime rates gone down and we don't even know your name
Get you outta town you hurt with all the pain
We'll make your name immortal
Cause you made our streets the same

You were a victim of crime now a victim of the law
Guardian angels even joined for the cause
Get you outta town you hurt with all the pain
We'll make your name immortal you made our streets the same

Vigilante killer he's a vengeance morbid man
Vigilante killer but they don't understand
Vigilante killer he's a vengeance morbid man
Vigilante killer but they don't understand

Walking through the streets
Taking life in your hands
The boy's on the corner's sixteen but a man
He may ask for money with a flick knife
Make a stand he doesn't even know
He walked right into your hands
He knows he's doing wrong
But he's sure he's doing right

The punks would stop their killing if someone put up a fight
New York Central Park ain't no place to cruise at night
He's looking for blood bet there's more spilled tonight

Vigilante killer he's a vengeance morbid man
Vigilante killer but they don't understand
Vigilante killer he's a vengeance morbid man
Vigilante killer but they don't understand
Ah
