The lights go on
The lights go off
When things don't feel right
I lie down like a tired dog
Licking his wounds in the shade

When I feel alive
I try to imagine a careless life
A scenic world where the sunsets are all

    General CommentI agree with shotgunn..
    I think the lyrics are awesome, I can relate to them.
    "When I feel alive
    I try to imagine a careless life
    a scenic world were all the sunsets are all

    wishing life were simpler and you had time to admire the beauty in the world instead of dealing with the complexity and complicated-ness of life. beautiful

    General Commenti dunno if the lyrics of the song exactly sweep me away, but the background music is so cool (reminds me of magnetic fields) and the tone of his croon is quite soothing.
