    rise up
    son of man
    new york city son of sam
    with a gun in hand
    he reapes the women of our land
blood and family darkness death depravity keep out of his way live to lie another day
(with a.44 gun to shoot her down, down)
he was told to kill dogs and demons gave him will spirit roaming night sullen vampire hating light
nobody wants him he just stares at the world planning his vengeance that he will soon unfurl
now the time is here for son of sam to spread fear father holy ghost wicked son who kills the most
nobody wants him they just turn their heads nobody helps him now he has his revenge
gunshots full of lead fill his victims full of dread running as fast as they can son of sam kills again
down, down, down x2
