Shoot out the lights
City lights the water as the snow forgets the sky
and were staring at the bridges just like every other night
We been watching for a miracle,
we are praying for a sign.
When the cure is made of poison, then it’s hard to resturise
If its time, oh lord, shoot out the lights. Shoot out the lights.
Having shake with anger and the clouds they curse the ground and I’m screaming for an answer and the darkness blinds me now
We will not survive on misery
We will fill our self with love
We are searching we are hopeful we are anything but lost
If its time oh lord, shoot out the lights.
Shoot out the lights. X4
I see the stars in black and white, and i pray to god, most every night
I see the stars in black and white, and i pray to god, most every night
[Shoot out the lights]
I see the stars in black and white, and i pray to god most every night
And i see the stars x 5
Most every night
Shoot out the lights
[Big mix of i see the stars and shoot out the lights.]
And i see the stars in black and white, and i pray to god, i pray to god

    General Comment:On the surface, this song to me, means that he just wants to forget the rest of the world and live it blindly just for a little while... "shoot out the lights"
    He just wants to have sex with a girl he just met, or with a girl he's been with.

    He just wants to make that one decision in life that may change him forever or face-fuck him forever.

    He has to stop stopping and start moving, he needs to do something...
    So he shoots out the lights and goes for it.

    General Comment:He wrote it for his grandma when she was diagnosed with Cancer...

    From his FanPage
    "Ron Pope I wrote Shoot Out The Lights for Grandma when she got cancer. That's me telling her that she's not alone. She got better, thank God."

    General Comment:I'm pretty sure it says "when the cure is made of poison, it's hard to REST YOUR EYES".

    This all points to a pretty powerful experience and a lot of it makes more sense once I read the quote from him. I'm glad his Grandma was okay!

    General Comment:these lyrics have many problems.

    City lights the water as the snow forgets the sky
    And we're staring at the bridges just like every other night

    We've been watching for a miracle
    We're praying for a sign
    When the cure is made of poison then it's hard to rest your eyes

    If it's time
    Oh
    Lord
    Shoot out the lights
    Shoot out the lights

    Heavens shake with anger and the clouds
    They curse the ground
    And I'm screaming for an answer but the darkness blinds me now

    We will not survive on misery
    We will fill ourselves with love
    We are searching
    We are hopeful
    We are anything but lost

    If it's time
    Oh
    Lord
    Shoot out the lights
    Shoot out the lights
    Shoot out the lights
    Shoot out the lights
    Shoot out the lights

    I see the stars in black and white
    I pray to God most every night

    I see the stars in black and white
    And I pray to God most every night
    (Shoot out the lights)

    I see the stars in black and white
    (Shoot out the lights)
    (Shoot out the lights)
    And I pray to God most every night
    (Shoot out the lights)
    (Shoot out the lights)

    And I see the stars
    I see the stars
    (Shoot out the lights)
    I see the stars
    I see the stars
    (Shoot out the lights)
    I see the stars most every night
    (Shoot out the lights)

    (I see the stars in black and white)
    Shoot out the lights
    Shoot out the lights
    (I pray to God most every night)
    Shoot out the lights

    Shoot out the lights
    (I see the stars in black and white)
    Shoot out the lights
    Shoot out the lights
    (I pray to God most every night)
    Shoot out the lights

    (I see the stars)
    (I see the stars)

    I see the stars in black and white
    And I pray to God
    I pray to God
