In the damp and darkened street Blood is running cold For in the ghostly moonlit walls Terror will unfold. For one young man, this is the night That fury will arise And at that time he'll aprehend Who he does despise. The criminals have done the deed That fills his heart with rage. And in his life, he only thinks That life is just a stage. He feels as if he acted wrong That led his parents' death His soul was filled with vengance But released a single breath. And now he stands in shadows Waiting for the prey He only hunts in twilight And rarely in the day. His overwhelming thinking Has got him where he's at. His well known name has grown into "The man within the bat."
