A dinosaur wonders why it still walks the earth, yeah
A meteor promises it's not gonna hurt, yeah
Earthquake always happen when you're in bed, Fred
The house shakes, maybe it was something I said, Ned

Go easy on me, easy on me, brother
Go easy on me, easy on me, brother

When the lights go out and you throw yourself about
In the darkness where we learn to see
When the lights go out, don't you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

Statues fall, democracy is flat on its back, Jack
We had it all and what we had is not coming back, Zack
A big mouth says the people, they don't wanna be free for free
The blackout, is this an extinction event we see?

Go easy on me, easy on me, brother
Go easy on me, easy on me now

When the lights go out and you throw yourself about
In the darkness where we learn to see
When the lights go out, don't you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

When the lights go out (ah ah ah ah)
When the lights go out (ah ah ah ah)
When the lights go out
When the lights go out

Blackout, it's clear
Who you are will appear
Blackout, no fear
So glad that we are all still here, here

When the lights go out, oh
When the lights go out
When the lights go out

When the lights go out and you throw yourself about
In the darkness where we learn to see
When the lights go out, don't you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

When the lights go out (ah ah ah ah)
When the lights go out (ah ah ah ah)

When the lights go out
When the lights go out
When the lights go out
