I don't want to space out
I don't want to zone out
I don't want to check out
I don't want to black out

I'm in the mood for some one on one
I'm in the mood for some talking
heavy talking
most of the time I'm just looking for fun
still in the mood for forgetting
heavy drinking

no, i don't wanna drift anymore
no, not anymore

you're the one holding the flashlight
you're the one tongue like a sharp knife
point me home even if I fight
lover be a friend to me tonight
I'm the one with fog on the mirror
you're the one seeing it clearer
point me home show me the way out
go ahead hold up your flashlight now

got in the car bored outta my mind
dirty motel and the tv
fuzzy tv
I'm sure we shared a romantic time
somewhere in side of my memory
fuzzy memory

I don't want to space out
I don't want to zone out
I don't want to check out
I don't want to black out

no, I don't wanna drift anymore
no, not anymore

(chorus)

you're the one holding the flashlight
go ahead hold up your flashlight

hold up your flashlight now

    Song MeaningThis song is talking about the way that an addict (drug or alcohol) has when they realize that they are missing the parts of regular, sober life that are meaningful to them (i.e. "heavy talking"). It's about wanting to be present and active participants in their own life ("No I won't want to drift anymore") and about needing to rely on people they can trust that can help them stay on track ("I'm the one with fog on the mirror, you're the one who's seeing it clearer...You're the one holding the flashlight now").
