Jonny gonna get us and he knows just where we are he's gassing up his daddy's car 'for dropping mommy at the bar. He's ready oh to rip us yeah to rip us all apart he thinks savagery an art and he paints with all his heart. So one eye to the back and one eye to the side, lend an ear to the devil so he knows that you'll abide. And when you're walking home, stay out of the park. Don't be afraid of the dark.
Better now than later ain't the way you feel no more. Keep on staring at the door as you're pacing round the floor. Skin as thin as paper yeah and paper can be torn, used to laugh at being sore but yer laughing not no more. One eye turning black and one eye been split wide, ears have fallen deaf to the way you feel inside. When you're all alone, racing through the park, don't be afraid of the dark.
Natural born forgetter better get to where you go. Walk it off the hurt and woe cuz he's comin' still ya know. Jonny now or later yeah the difference is small. In the end we're gonna fall. In the end yeah one and all. Never too far gone all along said ya know. Looks like you were wrong, sad there's no more time to grow. I guess we'll never know what you were doing in the park. Don't be afraid of the dark.
