Some body turn the lights off
Sometimes my eyes are hollow and sleepy
Somebody turn the lights down
Sometimes my skin wishes I was somewhere else
Some body turn the lights off
Sometimes the only way out is back in
Somebody turn the lights down
Click, click, click in the night

Turn the lights off and close the curtains
Cause I like the dark I'm a lonely person
And it seems like my only friends are the TV, Maxim and FHM.
That's why I drink 'till I pass out, think 'till I black out
Or watch Jay Leno 'till I crash out.
It's like this whole world's consumed on some Pink Floyd shit
Dark Side of the Moon, singin'
"We don't need no education"
Cause my life's like poltergeist
It sucks me in and I can't change the station
"We don't need no though control"
And I can't really sleep cause my life repeats
Like I'm trapped in a rerun o my own damn show

So somebody turn off the lights
Turn these lights off
So somebody show me you're there
And turn these lights on

Do you mind if I flick this light switch
Cause I don't want you to see me like this
I'm not normal I'm a different creature
You don't like me I don't like me either
I keep seeing things that I can't resist
Got a girlfriend that barely knows I exist
Or maybe it's the Lithium I'm on
while I punch through crunch like Nirvana's song, saying
"I feel stupid, and contagious"
Cuz everytime I shut my eyes I see angels with dirty faces
"Here we are now, entertain us"
Now my life's got me seeing death
like I'm back with the three witches of Macbeth

So somebody turn off the lights
Turn these lights off
So somebody show me you're there
And turn these lights on

Where do you go when the lights go out
Do you toss and turn and scream and shout
I know
Why would you keep laughing
I know
Where do you hide when the sun goes down
and darkness falls and no one's around
I know
Why is love such a bad word
Click click click in the night

I know all bad things happen in threes
And hearts skip beats like scratched cds
When darkness falls, when strangers call
like finding phone numbers, in bathroom stalls
My back is against these walls of hatred
I feel like I'm trapped between Freddy Vs. Jason
No escape from this blue lagoon
That's why I shout like I'm Ozzy and I bark at the moon

So somebody turn off the lights
- Somebody turn these lights off
So somebody show me you're there and turn these lights on
-Somebody show me you're there
So somebody turn off the lights
- Somebody turn these lights on
So somebody show me you're there and turn these lights on
-Somebody show me you're there.

Click click click in the night.
