Kill The Lights - Ryan Adams

When I go walking through the city at night
I see the trash is piling up
Against the sides of the street
Of the streets when its day
Where all the bodies collide
I like to think about this place
Like it's a dream
A dream I had when I was watching TV
When I was 5, when I was 10,
Now I'm inside it here I am
On these streets, with these dreams
On this island, and I'm staying til

Somebody kills the lights
Til somebody kills the lights
Til somebody kills the lights
Up on the old white way,
I'm gonna stay and survive

It's rough sometimes
But I am here despite the wars
I fight the ones inside
The rest of them are yours
I'm alive, I'm alive, and I am going to survive

I like to think about this place
Like I'm not here
Sometimes it's all so overwhelming
But let me make this clear
It's a dream so partially mine
You try to wreck it
With your wrecking machine,
I'll cut the wires
Those gals upstairs on broadway
"Reading" lines are OK
While there's still neon in the sign
They're gonna stay until

Til somebody kills the lights
Til somebody kills the lights
Til somebody kills the lights
Up on the old white way,
The great lady is littering the old white way
This dream is mine, and it's going to survive
I'm alive, I'm alive, You're f_cking fired

Kill the lights
Kill the lights
