Carousels make laps each night
Like drunks we spin until we're sick
Creepy clowns from one horse towns
Can make their livings on a trick

Night covers all our tracks
To break some fragile backs
So we tell some lies and then we hide from light

One night I fell asleep
I woke up on that sunny street
At first I thought I couldn't
But now I see

That the shadows kept me hidden
From the light that calls my name
All the creatures stood above me
Now I'm crawling towards the sun

Candy lips that taste too sweet
Were sour in the summer heat
As the night fell I heard church bells
Say it's time to leave
Out on the town we went to carry out missions
Neither you or I would ever know sunlight

One night I fell asleep
I woke up on that sunny street
At first I thought I couldn't
But now I see

That the shadow's kept me hidden
From the light that calls my name
All the creatures stood above me
Now I'm crawling towards the sun

In the nightlight, we still shine bright (x4)

One night I fell asleep
I woke up on that sunny street
At first I thought I couldn't
But now I see

That the shadow's kept me hidden
From the light that calls my name
All the creatures stood above me
Now I'm crawling towards the sun

    General CommentThe first time I heard THS, I absolutely HATED them. But then I saw them live and they grew on me a LOT. Now I'm singing this song in a showcase next month. I love how upbeat it is, even though that's not the sort of music I usually listen to. I definitely think the song deals a lot with religion, although the vampire comment is fun to think about. :)
