ALBUM:

  • Songs of Experience Track 11

LYRICS:

Dinosaur, wonders why it still walks the earth, yeah
A meteor, promises it’s not gonna hurt, yeah
Earth quakes always happen when you’re in bed Fred
The house shakes maybe it was something I said Ned

…go easy on me, easy on me brother
…go easy on me, easy on me brother

When the lights go out
And you throw yourself about in the darkness where you learn to see
When the lights go out
Don’t you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

Statues fall
Democracy is flat on its back Jack
We had it all
And what we had is not coming back, Zac
A big mouth
Says the people they don’t want to be free for free
The Blackout
Is this an extinction event we see?

Go easy on me, easy on me brother
Go easy on me, easy on me now

When the lights go out
And you throw yourself about in the darkness where you learn to see
When the lights go out
Don’t you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

When the lights go out
Ah, ah, oh, oh
When the lights go out
Ah, ah, oh, oh

When the lights go out
When the lights go out

Blackout
It’s clear
Who you are will appear
Blackout
No fear
So glad that we are all still here,
Here!

When the lights go out
When the lights go out
When the lights go out

When the lights go out
And you throw yourself about in the darkness where you learn to see
When the lights go out
Don’t you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

When the lights go out
Ah, ah, oh, oh
When the lights go out
Ah, ah, oh, oh

When the lights go out
When the lights go out
When the lights go out
