With the lights out you ran around town
with answers in your mind and marbles in your mouth
and you freaked out in the yard by the flowers
telling everybody how the place used to be ours
but now you can't go home the light's out
you're way too old and you've got doubts about what'll come of your soul
and it all seems so made up these days you try to stay true to yourself
but it's hard when you don't know who you are

they say it's so sad
with all the good that they gave you made bad
you play it so well and what they see is what they get
and what they gave you is what you sell
well who do you think you�re talking to anyway
I'm not your muse
not your amusement not to be confused
with the answer you've got down in your pocket
well look close you'll see there's a hole
where the answers have all slipped right out from under your control

but you set my heart on fire with the light from your soul
burning upwards and out of control
you've replaced my lonely desire with a life filled with love
there's a lot worse that I could think of

while the time's marching on
you watch the world pass by from out on the lawn
it's time you burned this house down and be gone
because it's all in your mind
all of the time
and in due time you'll find
it's easier not to fight it

you set my heart on fire with the light from your soul
burning upwards and out of control
you replace my lonely desire with a life filled with love
there's a lot worse that I could think of.
