In the blackness of the night 
I seem to wander endlessly 
With a hope burning out deep inside 
I'm a fugitive, community has driven me out 
For this bad, bad world I'm beginning to doubt 
I'm alone and there is no one by my side 
 
In the blackness of the night 
I see a shadow passing by 
From the heels of an old soldier boy
There's no comprimising 
And his eyes are black as the sky 
For this bad, bad world he is going to die
He's alone and there is no one by his side 
 
In the blackness of the night 
I see a sparkle of a star 
From the sweet silver tear of a child 
And she's clutching at a photograph of long, long ago 
When her parents were happy, she was too young to know 
She's alone and there is no one by her side 
 
I'm alone and there is no one by my side

In the blackness of the night 
I seem to wander endlessly 
With a hope burning out deep inside 
I'm a fugitive, community has driven me out 
For this bad, bad world I'm beginning to doubt 
I'm alone, and there is no one by my side
