Do you shake?
Through the night?
Tucked under the covers tightly
There's monsters in the shadows
And zombies in the street lights

And the sounds from the street
Like some terrible cacophony
It cuts through the walls of your bedroom
And haunts your dreams

Don't you cry
And I'd sing you a lullaby
But by and by its a waste of time
Take a spoonful to settle your mind
And I wish you goodnight

Block out all your demons
With white noise, pills and Jesus
And when I get down
I just turn off the lights

And I find friends in love
With some online
Sex and reruns
And when I get down
I just turn off the light, the light, the li-a-ights

When you're lost and confused
But you're too proud to face the truth
Spend up all your money up on a band-aid
To cover the wounds

When you suck at life
But you're much to scared to die
Embrace the sweet indifference with your brothers
And we'll march in time, time, time

Why so stressed?
Do you feel like the world's a mess?
Well, grab what you can from a medicine chest
Honey, all your worst fears are suppressed

Block out all your demons
With white noise, pills, and Jesus
And when I get down
I just turn off the lights

And I find, friends in love
With some online
And when I get down
I just turn off the lights

Block out all your demons
With white noise, pills, and Jesus
And when I get down
I just turn off the lights, the light, the li-a-ights

Block out all your demons
With white noise, pills, and Jesus
And when I get down
I just turn off the lights, the light, the li-a-ights

And I make, friends in love
With some online
And when I get down
I just turn off the lights
Turn off the light, the light, the li-a-ights

    General CommentThe Acoustic Version of this song is amazing.


    I think it's about dealing with feeling or being alone, and how to over come the loneliness.

    General CommentI think he is humorously commenting on how people these days deal with their problems.

    "Block out all your demons
    with white noise, pills, and Jesus"
    and
    "grab what you can from the medicine chest"


    He's saying that people use these things as a crutch and a way to ignore what's wrong.
