I prefer the dark streets
When I can't have the sunlight
There are no civil lanterns
When things are artificially bright

I run for my life
I run for my life
I run for my life

A shining intercom
Saying we will overcome
I'll be your civil lantern
And people get that look in their eyes

When the night falls
But, the sky's lit up
By all those civil lanterns
And people start to get energized

I run for my life
I run for my life
I run for my life
