When you get sober
Will you get kinder?
Because when you get uptight
It's such a drag

When I get older
I won't remember
Until that day comes
I've got something on you

Under the blacklight
Out in the garden
Into the pale moon
I'll be waiting

Under the blacklight
Under the blacklight

Even dead men
Lie in the their coffins
It's been a long time
Since you felt better

Under the blacklight
Out in the garden
Into the pale moon
I'll be waiting

Under the blacklight
Out in the garden
Into the pale moon
Under the blacklight

Somewhere in Laredo
Borders a soft man
Like a black widow
I'll be crawling

Under the blacklight
Out in the garden
Into the pale moon
Under the blacklight

Down in the valley
Up in the dark blue
Under the blacklight
Under the blacklight

    General Commentwell, when things are under black light they tend to stick out, like lint on a black t-shirt pops out and stuff, like imperfections... anyone want to build on that?

    General Commenti agree with tomorrow_tomorrow about the blacklight concept of things usually unseen in normal lighting that stand out when examined carefully, in fact jenny says that in the september spin magazine. so i think that's why the album is entitled "under the blacklight" because this whole album is about the unseen parts of LA, the less pure (prostitutes, gypsies, etc etc)

    General CommentIs it about revenge perhaps? Jenny (our narrator) is fed up with an unkind drunk guy, and she's "got something" on him. And whoever is it will get their just desserts that day when she crawls "under the blacklight" and...honestly, I'm not sure if she'll kill him or just reveal her master plan.

    General Commentwhen 'she' gets old and is still living with her dick of a husband she's going to kill him in the night/black with a full moon/light.

    General CommentI really love the line "Even dead men lie in their coffins..." And it sort of makes sense with what HellBent1337 said about killing the asshole of a guy. The narrator is saying that he'll still lie to her when he's dead.
