Your sun stained skin it shines so bright.
Under the stars the moon the city lights.
You paint your body in a dress so tight.
That your best friends bought you last Friday night.

Your body’s filled with liquid gold.
That you bought from the store here on your own.
Your heart beats loudly as your stomach turns.
It spins your head until it hurts.

And we’ll set our clocks ahead.
While this town’s in bed.
We’ll travel in the shadows of the moonlight.
‘til our feet feel no more.
We’ll set your compass north.
‘til we reach that door.
Of the house with a window.
That holds a candle.
That holds enough hope.
For you and me.
In the night.
In the night.

Your after shave it cuts the air.
Through your popped collar you always wear.
Like a coat of arms on a Friday night.
But your boy scouts’ honor was left behind.

On the information highway of TV screens.
Yeah music, VHS, and magazines.
They talk so loud that I cannot think.
Yeah they talk so loud that I cannot speak.

And we’ll set our clocks ahead.
While this town’s in bed.
We’ll travel in the shadows of the moonlight.
‘til our feet feel no more.
We’ll set your compass north.
‘til we reach that door.
Of the house with a window.
That holds a candle.
That holds enough hope.
For you and me.

I wanna wear the gloves of thievery.
And picket-pocket the industry.
And then I’ll tie it in a burlap bag.
Send it to the ocean floor to stay.

And then I’ll wash my hands in innocence.
Cleanliness is the best offense.
And then I’ll bask in my sweet escape.
I’m a criminal in a police state.
Oh oh oh I’m a criminal in a police state.
Police state.

And we’ll set our clocks ahead.
While this town’s in bed.
We’ll travel in the shadows of the moonlight.
‘til our feet feel no more.
We’ll set your compass north.
‘til we reach that door.
Of the house with a window.
That holds a candle.
That holds enough hope.
For you and me.
In the night.
