Turn off the lights and watch it all melt down
Napoleon slow to the bottom of this town
taste your mouth and touch your knees
blinking lights in electric trees
but if you're gonna play that part
I'm gonna start back at the start
turn off your eyes and watch it all run down
tundra coils in the bottom of this town

I never knew, I never knew, I never knew how
much I needed you
all these people died in the same way
and all these buildings are built the same way
we can't trust each other
progress our only lover
these streets have no cover
hey brother, where have you been

turn off the sky and watch it all melt down
Napoleon slow to the bottom of this town
closed your moth and cut your knees
hung us up in electric trees
but if you're gonna play that part
I'm gonna start back at the start
tundra coils in the bottom of this town

I never knew, I never knew, I never knew
how much I needed you

    General Commentmaybe the best song in the history of ever.

    yeah.
    so, basically, it's about the loneliness of cities, and how people discover that they need each other more and more as loneliness deepens.
