"I Want the Lights On After Dark" as written by and Torquil Campbell Chris Dumont....
So you go out, and you come home again
Tokyo - November 7, 6 AM
Shove through your door, how quiet it is
When you are alone like someone always is
Go tell your boys and have a drink with girls
Before they appear this is a dead world
There's room for you to fall apart
To rip out the whys on your machine heart
And what comes next... is called the blue hour
Your face is erased I wanted moonshine
It's everything, and then nothing at all
You cancel your plans decide to stay 'till four

Let me disappear
I was never here
I was never seen on the LCD screen
Which replaced your dream
The lights on after dark
The lights on after dark
The lights on after dark
I want the lights on after dark

The birth was quick, but death is real slow
Like everything good I knew it had to go
I like the trip, I like the night plane
I'm glad that I know, I won't go home again
I have no words, can't read the signs
Every single train on parallel lines


Another drink, another line
I'm gonna stay up 'cause I'm in lost time (x7)
