"Live on in the Dark" as written by and Brent Best....
Once you eyes they shone like flashlights, fountains of clarity
And the most alkaline of batteries were you and me
Free of failure, flicker or fade
Yeah but depending where you're from too much daylight can seem like an oddity
And devotion is a commodity, so with you it seems
It only comes in trade
Yeah but the first time the bill isn't paid, it's too late

So you just live in the dark
You could drive but you just park
You just talk when you could sing
And now it doesn't mean a thing
You could bite, but you just bark
You could light but you just spark
You live on in the dark

Rolling papers, bottles and needles, and people we trusted
Our eyes just become too adjusted
We'd be busted
If sightlessness were a crime
So now I guess I should be searching for matches but I don't see what's the use
Engines run 'till they're out of juice
And I can't even produce
Fuel enough to light your face
And that's a light I will never replace in time

So I just live on in the dark
I could drive but I just park
I just talk when I could sing
And now it doesn't mean a thing
I could bite, but I just bark
I could light but I just spark
I live on in the dark

It's as if we've only ever come together just to test each other's mettle
Or to justify subsistence or bolster our resistance to the idea that we should struggle
When we could just settle

So you just get numb to every itch
And there's no feeling in your fingertips
And you can't find the switch
And we've grown much too tired to grope
Yeah, we lost all our fire to cope a long time ago

So we just live on in the dark
We could drive but we just park
We just talk when we could sing
And now it doesn't mean a thing
We could bite but we just bark
We could light but we just spark
We live on in the dark
