"Kill the Lights" as written by Derek Heule, Wyatt Franz Hull, Luke Macmaster, David Quon and Nathan Ray Warkentin....
Oh, well, I've seen you around all those dark corners
Oh, where the shattered glass shines like stars
Oh, where those boys will be girls and those girls will be for hire
I swear they're all strung out on those boulevards

She said, just give me a chance to explain
She said, just give me a chance, give me a chance
She said, just give me a chance to explain
She said, just give me a chance, give me a chance

You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights
You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights, yeah

Oh, with those curtains drawn, you know that she's so pretty
Oh, from those years of living in her car
Oh, in her soul there's a country but her body?s a city
Oh, where those freeways aren't free at all

She said, just give me a chance to explain
She said, just give me a chance, give me a chance
She said, just give me a chance to explain
She said, just give me a chance, give me a chance

You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights
You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights

You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights
You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights

You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights
And you, you can tell me what to do, you can tell me what to say
And you, you can tell me what to do, you can tell me what to say

You come on over, we?ll make it right
We?ll lay it down then we?ll kill the lights

    General CommentThis was originally called Down the Circus but then they added to it. I think its about prostitutes on the streets and how there is one girl that didnt belong but she didnt have anywhere else to turn, so she began living on the streets (and...in her car) and selling her body. Im not sure how they're going to "make it right" though... sounds like a pretty depressing situation. Anyone see it any other way?
    Amazing band though, too bad they're not together anymore :(

    General CommentThis song sounds like there is a prostitute but it's really a man

    "Where those boys will be girls
    And those girls will be for hire

    and the singer fell in love with him/her but walked in and discovered the truth one day, but when he thinks it over he's like I love this person for who they are not what they are and is like here come over and we can make this right...we can be together... just kill the lights, a sort of sweeping it under the rug solution by pretending it's a woman I suppose

    but he loves her so he constantly uses the term her because in his mind its a girl and when he says
    "In her soul there’s a country
    But her body’s a city

    hes saying shes one of a kind even if everyones already been in/through her/him because countries are unique but cities are everywhere and everyones been in a city ::WINK::

    id believe it was a woman he fell in love with and discovered that shes a whore except for the line

    "Where those boys will be girls "
