Those bright shiny lights
They’re shining so bright
Casting a shadow
On all the simple things you used to own
Casting a shadow
On all the simple things you used to own.

Oh those bright shiny lights
They be shining so bright
Blinding the simple man
Oh what a sorrowful sight
Blinding the simple man
Oh what a sorrowful sight.

Oh those bright shiny lights
They be shining so bright
They’re casting a shadow
Oh what a sorrowful sight
They’re casting a shadow
On all the simple things you used to own
They’re casting a shadow
Oh what a sorrowful sight.

    My InterpretationA beautiful gem of a song.

    I was in particular reminded of the film 'Fight Club'...where a fire is the downfall of the protagonist's home (an apartment full of IKEA products) That fire shone bright...and cast a shadow on all the simple things he used to own...
