Lights On

Symphonic aphrodisiac

Colored lights in swing

Nightclub, church, and cabaret

A catalyst to sing.

-

Experiments in mind control

Probes in midnight jazz

Shining lies and smoking eyes

One last chance to dance.

-

Grab the Amortentia

Find the book and bell

Baby darling, don't you know

We're headed straight for hell.

-

But heaven is, if you prefer

A pleasant sort of place

We'll go to chapel all in white,

A veil before my face.

-

To seal our fates we'll share a kiss

And when that day is through,

The club will close, the truth will out

And I'll be bared to you.

-

With no more bass beats, heavy-sweet

To cloud your mind and eyes

The lights are up, the song is done

Too late, it's gone, I lied.
