"Tokyo Vigilante #1"

Tokyo Vigilante #1 kills with his mind, not with a gun
The rumor 'round town, that he was all washed up
But then he showed up
And then he cleaned up

Sharper than a sword
He don't run
You can't fuck with the number one son
He said, "Now, everybody needs a little vengeance
And when you want some, you call me
Yeah, everybody needs a little vengeance
I'll kill any man for a fee"


Now, who amongst you is gonna stand up
Now, who among you is gonna fall
Now, who's got the brains to see what's going on
And who amongst you is gonna crawl

Well, it's all for one
But they say it isn't so
Blood in the streets of downtown Tokyo
But the prayers of the weak get answered like a shot
Quick, fast style
Yeah, check it out, pressure drop


Eventually, time, it grinds down to a halt
The ultimate battle
The slug and the salt
The sun rises in the east
But sets in the west
Tokyo Vigilante, he never rests

Test of the body
Test of the mind
The future's on time
And the future's unkind
Explain the thought process
Of the insane
Not like the movies
But it's just the same
