The Skulls met the Pythons Down at the First Street station Alliance has been made in alleyways All across the nation These boys live off the milk of a silver jet And the love of sweet young women The Pythons are down from old Englishtown And they 're looking to do some living
Well the leader of the Pythons Is a kid they just call Zero Now Terry's pop says these kids Are some kind of monsters But Terry says "No, Pop They're just plain heroes"
Zero and Terry had found a love That burned like wild fire Now Terry's dad understood That this zero was no good A tramp, a thief and a liar
Well from out of the darkness That breaks the dawn Zero rode like twilight He said "Tonight's the night Blind Terry come on Terry come on Tonight is the night Pack your bags baby"
And together they ran like reindeers Through the streets Well like tomorrow the earth Is gonna catch on fire
Now Terry's dad hired some troopers To kill zero and bring Terry back home They caught up in the night, like firelightThem starlight troopers.... Zero marches through Terry's field They met the Pythons down on Route Nine But they refused to yield Now the Pythons fought with blazed guns And the troopers with swords of light And Zero and Terry they ran away And the gang fought all through the night
Now some folks say Zero and Terry got away Other said they were caught and brought back Ah, still young pilgrims to this day Go to that spot way down by the railroad tracks Where the troopers met the Pythons Old timers cry on a hot August night If you look hard enough, if you try You'll see Zero and Terry and all the Pythons Just hiking them streets up in the sky.
