lyrics

you need to know
some certainty

the one old thing
that's in short supply somehow

don't pull the plug just now

lights go out
lights go out
every stupid day
you don't have to do the same

they've just confused you
i could defuse you
a change of clothes in a case
it's a terrible waste

the ones to whom you answer now
would not do what they ask you to anyhow

don't do their dirty work

lights go out
lights go out
every stupid day
you don't have to do the same

they've just confused you
i could defuse you
a change of clothes in a case
doesn't quite replace...

light and sound
let's go out
find some of the joy
that's been missing from your world

so much to live for
not someone else's war
phone charger carefully packed
it's a half-conceived act

i'm not sure you believe in it anyway
not really
isn't it just the nearest absolute at hand
in a world of shifting horror?

lights go out
lights go out
every stupid day
you don't have to do the same

they've just confused you
i could defuse you
a change of clothes in a case
it's a terrible waste
