In The Night (1979 Version)

In the night, in the chair
He sits there, he sits tight
No more cans, no more crime
See the place, see the time

Well you never know
You never know
Well you never know
You never know

He walks light, don’t know how
Maybe now, in that night
Oh, I know, yes I know
There’s no chat
He’s for show

Well you never know
You never know
You never know, know, know, know, know, know, know
You never, never, never know
Know, know, know, know, know
Never know

Sees the place and tries to get the time
He’s slowly slipping into the slime
Can’t inject into his veins
Blood and guff ooze out and stain
Cares not that he really bleeds
Death not hell is what he needs
Sees the place, checks the time
Other place, other time

You never know
You never know, know, know, know, know, know, know
You never, never, never know

Slipping up and down his writhing side
His eyes begin to ponder pride
Subjective pics of misled youth
Before him lies the dreadful truth
Undignified, insignified
His wrist on to the razor slides

You never know
You never know
You never know, know, know, know, know, know, know
You never, never, never know
Know, know, know, know, know
