Shut the Light lyrics

SHUT THE LIGHT ON ME
SHUT THE LIGHT ON ME

I'm trapped in the haunted house on Diamond Road
Feel like I'm dying but I'm not old
This summer was a motherfucking winter's dead cold
Diamonds and gold chains and bring back the old shame
Knock, knock. Who is this? Oh, another no-name
People always drop by, couldn't they just walk by?
Dudes wearing tight shirts with forearms like Popeye
Four dudes in one car with one girl, come on, guys
At least I head the boxing glove when mad on those oxy drugs
Robbing out for 99, I was fighting on the Greyhound bus
Survival for us is like the Swiss army knife
Party round the world, I've been in this group a third of my life
Yo, you heard of us, right? We're the grindhouse trio
On a riverboat to Rio, this existence so surreal
Our brother fell down, we still around, we keep it real
But suckers be like playing themselves to have mash peal

There are things we cannot know
Invisible hands that guide the show
I'm up above
Sometimes you are forced to go
Far away and shut the door to the one you love

SHUT THE LIGHT ON ME
SHUT THE LIGHT ON ME

My life is flowing down the drain
Knowing that I'm blowing it and I'm going insane
I was running wild like a horse without the reins
Last five years still coursing through my veins
Damage to my brain, I am trapped and I am changed
Damn it if I play it, man, I have to fly again
We're soaring, now I'm falling, now I'm looking for a landing field
I'm going a million miles a minute but I'm standing still
I'm in danger, I'm an angel with a dirty face
I'm a stranger, lone ranger in a hurting place
I had to make a choice and walk away from past
I walk a lonely path that only I can grasp
Was living in a ghost town, Disneyland on acid
Four hours away, I could hear my city laughing
All I want is hunger back and I will try my hardest
From everything to nothing, back to being a starving artist

How can I forgive myself for what is done?
Avoiding your memory like a vampire does the sun
Know I want your love, all I want is your love

SHUT THE LIGHT ON ME
SHUT THE LIGHT ON ME
