"lights out" as written by Kasseem Dean, John David Jackson, Lexus Arnel Lewis and Shawn C. Carter....
Haley catch me now, I'm breaking off. I lost my medicine, I'm nearly starved.
A broken balance here, I've slowly slipped away into something scary and slightly ordinary.

One chance to light these flames that still surround us within our eyes.
Broken down to size, we bring this all upon us.
We will tear this open from the inside, forget these problems, and try to get some sleep.

Loosen up and lie there. Spread yourself so thin.
Pull this back. Reach inside and try to fake a smile.

On this January night. Turn off your lights.

So can you take us back to where we used to be?
It's overcompensating, but never ordinary.

Late to bed, you'll sleep all day. Wake up laughing here alone.
Wrap yourself in cellophane. This fashion show's become your own.
