"Lights Out" as written by and Billie Joe/pritchard Armstrong....
Lights out, here comes the night,
As the darkness falls over the light
Lights out, there goes the day
And this fear that comes won't go away

And I'm losing track of time
In the corners of my mind
And I'm living out my private suicide

Lights out, I lost myself
In the space between heaven and hell
Lights out, finding my way
Till I waste my time losing the way

    General CommentHmm...could this possibly mean that Christian is actually JoS/Jimmy? 'Cause Jimmy's death was JoS's private suicide...Jesus, how many personalities does Jesus have?

    General CommentThis to me sounds a lot like the moment jimmy becomes JoS again. Specifically, "private suicide" is exactly how Billie describes the death of Jimmy in homecoming. Also, "Between heaven and hell" could mean between Jimmy and JoS?

    Just a thought.

    My OpinionLights out,(all good is going away)
    here comes the night,(darkness is coming)
    As the darkness falls over the light(satan's work to eliminate the light)
    Lights out,
    there goes the day
    And this fear that comes won't go away(The fear of God)

    And I'm losing track of time(losing track of all that is good and moral)
    In the corners of my mind
    And I'm living out my private suicide(living for darkness)

    Lights out,
    I lost myself(nothing is good, all is evil)
    In the space between heaven and hell(the evil of the earth)
    Lights out, finding my way(the way of drakness)
    Till i waste my time losing the way (losing the way of the light and what is all good: GOD)

    A SONG TITLED "KNOW YOUR ENEMY" ALSO CLEARLY IS UNDERSTOOD THAT THE LORD IS THE ENEMY AND DARKNESS IS THE WAY. KEEP YOUR FAITH, KEEP THE LORD IN YOUR LIFE, AND SEE TRUE MEANINGS BEHIND THE WORKS OF SATAN!
