*** Backyard Stairway ***

In my town these places seem unknown
moral fades the night is coming
but look around their guilty eyes are small

Inhabitants are kind but their weakness they must hide
darkness makes their instincts groaning
never ask what they do at night

Now I tell you the truth
about the village I've spent my best years
I'm not a fan of gossip
it's simply the truth...

From dusk till dawn gamblers throwing dice
prostitution best attraction
in every window there's sparkling a red light
just have to follow the shadows through the night
listen to the snap of whips now
and see the dominas with slaves walk around

(Chorus):
Backyard stairway to underground
Backyard stairway world spins around
Backyard stairway your dreams come true
There are only small steps to come down

I can't say where to find this town
it's a world to lose the innocence
but I can tell you it's quite near your home

But beware addiction is your friend
two steps down like one step back now
and I stop telling the dusk turns on my face

Now I tell you the truth
about the village I've spent my best years
I'm not a fan of gossip
it's simply the truth...

(Chorus)
