Keep your ticket close, departure is near
The government's bent the truth
And looks to destroy what's dear
There's an underlying sense
That there must be something more
A purpose not to tie you down
But to open up a door
To everlasting love, and a life set free
This love and a relationship
Will renew these ruined cities

If you refuse this choice you have
One day, you will see
You'll come crawling back to me
When the lights go out in the cities
Yeah, you'll come crawling back to me

(And you'll) Clap your hands for the one you should've loved
Stomp your feet to the beat of my drum

The lust for domination propels this dusty empire
To take away the given grace of deciding my desires
With my head cast down, no recollection of you
But you didn't want me, you didn't want me to

If you refuse this choice you have
One day, you will see
You'll come crawling back to me
When the lights go out in the cities
Yeah, you'll come crawling back to me
Yeah, you'll come crawling back to me
