Reality's not subtle.

Turn Out The Light by me

I've been staring at the light bulb
Shining on my mirror,
Trying not to look down -
Afraid it'll all be clearer
If I catch my reflection;
Ignoring's my protection
From the truth.

And I almost wish it'd burn out,
Conceal away that image.
The light, I've learned to live without,
But I still fear the darkness.
Don't want to view reality
Or see what's out in front of me...
Or maybe I do.

So hide
What's there
I may never be prepared.
And don't keep
Me aware
If there's anything to look forward to,
'Cause right now I know it's no use
To be here.
Turn out the light.

I've been standing in the afterglow,
Reflecting old memories.
Pretending to pretend I know
That this is all pretending.
But reality's not subtle,
Coming forward with rebuttal,
Perception's loose.

Today the sun came back out,
Once again it went away.
Every dream ends in a blackout,
Every night seizes the day.
The jaw always feels let down,
The ear always regrets sounds,
The light, the eyes refuse.

So hide
What's there
I may never be prepared.
And don't keep
Me aware
If there's anything to look forward to,
'Cause right now I know it's no use
To be here.
Turn out the light.

Turn out the light,
Pull out the plug,
Flip off the switch,
And it'll all be over soon.
Don't wanna see all there is to lose.

So hide
What's there
I may never be prepared.
And don't keep
Me aware
If there's anything to look forward to,
'Cause right now I know it's no use
To be here.

The dark has become too clear,
So turn out the light.
