Lyrics

Blackout
(words and music by Allan Dawson)

Slip between these silken sheets, baby.
Questions shouldn't be answered with maybe.
Did you think it could ever be this painful?
Your life's been hit by a bullet with it's name on.
Close your eyes and think of making tables,
Having a laugh and chatting with your neighbours.
But don’t let go to thinking that you're through here,
Not much longer now till you can leave here.

Not much longer now till you can go.

But don't you let them take you screaming.
It might be scary but you ain't dreaming.
Don't let them watch you show your pain.
Don't let them watch you show your pain.

Floating effortlessly across the landing,
Softly and politely blow out the candle.
Take in carefully the things you see,
Think of what is you, what is "me".
Rough and tumble looking at the darkness,
Mighty, Humble. Thinking about roses.
After you were looking for the rainbow,
A blackened void unfurled below.

But its not much longer now till you can go.

Don't you let them take you screaming.
It might be scary but you ain’t dreaming.
Don't let them watch you show your pain.
Don't let them watch you show your pain.

Blackout.
