Lights Out

You think the future’s rosy well I think you must be blind
Cos the guilt that you’ve got stored up would make me lose my mind

People called you the teflon kid cos the dirt would never stick
But all your empty promises are way too late to fix

There’s panic in your voice as I turn out the lights
The demons hiding in your closet are coming out tonight
Your past has come to haunt you and the future ain’t so bright
You’d better say a little prayer and hope for morning light

To those that you clambered over on your meteoric rise
Now all’s come home to roost its too late to apologise

You pissed your money up against the wall and things are getting tight
All those things you said you’d never do well now I think you might

There’s panic in your voice as I turn out the lights
The demons hiding in your closet are coming out tonight
Your past has come to haunt you and the future ain’t so bright
You’d better say a little prayer and hope for morning light

There’s panic in your voice as I turn out the lights
All the ghosts you thought you’d laid to rest are coming home tonight
Your past has come to haunt you and the future ain’t so bright
