Dead of night
Shadows fall
The time is right
I hear the call

My head is hot
My heart is cold
I can't hold back
I'm out of control

They took everything they could
But they didn't get it all
You always fight the hardest
With your back against the wall

Back on the savage street
I'm ready to make my stand
I'll stand on my own two feet
Once again

No more room
Tables are turning
I can't turn back
Bridges are burning

Nothing to lose
I'll face them all
The bigger they are
The harder they fall

My heart feels like it could break
But I'm not givin' in
I'll take it all, that I can take
And now I'm back again

Back on the savage street
I'm ready to make my stand
I'll stand on my own two feet
Once again

Ooo, I'm back on the street

Oh they took everything they could
But they didn't get it all
You always fight the hardest
With your back up against the wall

Back on the savage street
I'm ready to make my claim
I'll stand on my own two feet
Once again

Back on the savage street
I'm ready to make my stand
I'll stand on my own two feet
Once again

No!
Oh, yeah
I'm back on the street
