The Darned

The Darned - Dangerous (The Night Is Dark)         

Danger comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes
No regard for safety or aerodynamic devices.

Risk’s just one of those things
     That racing with me brings
If I overtake you
I’ll snap off one of your wings

CHORUS
The night is dark,
And full of terrors
No night vision and
Terrible weather
It is dangerous out there
When I’m abroad
Citizen beware
It is dangerous on the road.

I’m fast, erratic spectacular
If its speed you want, then I’m not lacking
I’m way in front you my nemesis
In terms of financial backing.

But the most dangerous thing
About me is not that
I might crash
It’s the fact that I eaned this right to race
With pocketfulls of cash.

CHORUS
   The night is dark,
And full of terrors
No night vision and
Terrible weather
It is dangerous out there
When I’m abroad
Citizen beware
It is dangerous on the road.

Ring-a-ring of Nurburg
And the Circuit de la Sarthe
Where the dark of night is crueller
Than The Marquis de Sade
Every racer has his day
And this will be my night
I’m The God of Darkness
    And you’ll perish in my might.

You won’t know if I’ll go left or right
You’d see me coming in the day
I’ll slice through you
Like a rapier might
Be very afraid

CHORUS
   The night is dark,
And full of terrors
No night vision
Terrible weather
It is dangerous out there
When I’m abroad
Citizen beware
  It is dangerous on the road.

Dangerous on the road
On the road
On the road

Seek out the light
Don’t go to the dark place
Seek out the light.
