    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
