Tortured and twisted, he walks the streets alone People avoid him, they know the street's his own Cold blade of silver, his eyes they burn so wild Mean as a tiger, society's own child Those who try to burn him pay You don't do that to Johnny Blade He's the meanest guy around his town One look and he will cut you down Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade Life has no meaning, and Death's his only friend Will fate surprise him, where will he meet his end? He feels so bitter, yes he's so full of hate To die in the gutter, I guess that's Johnny's fate Rivals all across the land He kills them with his knife in hand He's the meanest guy around his town One look and he will cut you down Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade Well you know that Johnny's a spider And his web is the city at night He's a victim of modern frustration That's the reason he's so ready to fight He's the one that should be afraid What will happen to you, Johnny Blade? Oh he knows his future's decided And he ain't gonna change it, no way He was born to die in the gutter He'll keep fighting 'till the end of his days Been alone all through his life His only friend is a switchblade knife He's the one who should be afraid What will happen to you, Johnny Blade? You fool the people Who's fooling who? It's time to listen Who's fool are you?
