lyrics

somebody turn the lights on
lights please, lights please i can't see, i can't breathe
somebody turn the lights on
i can't see i can't dream lights please, lights please

if you could share a single
little second of your life
i could absorb some of your light
and escape from the night
i'm tired of fighting and rhyming
and losing my track of time'n
and outer body tripping
seeing myself failing and flalin'
i'm torn thin within; uncomfortable
when thinking 'bout your skin's sins
men with no permission
that you couldn't keep from getting it in
lost every drop of sanity betting to win
engulfed in this darkness
drags me deeper i'm sinking again
i need a pure vision
not disturbing, just vivid
a reason for the these seasons,
never learning, just livid
i'm keen to these feelings,
got me turning, not spinning
these mid winter nightmares
are the reason i'm spitting so

somebody turn the lights on
lights please, lights please
i can't see, i can't breathe
somebody turn the lights on
i can't see i can't dream
lights please, lights please

i'm torn between your hell on earth
and false thoughts of heaven
and everything i made up
in between that you remembered
i was too naive to think
i was more cunning than a fox
now i'm just a memory
taped up in your box
it's four o' clock,
and i ain't slept in three days
got two bucks left
and one brain that's dead weight
my head being straight,
is something that you've been waiting for
its not impossible,
but something you'll never be ready for
you petty whore, the perfect angel in flight
these double sided notion travels farthest from right
and left next aside,
i ditched all your lies
and fed em to the demons
that slept and crept inside my mind

somebody turn the lights on
lights please, lights please
i can't see, i can't breathe
somebody turn the lights on
i can't see i can't dream
lights please, lights please
