Intro
D/F# E (4 times)
[E]In the Dark who can see his face?[D/F#] [E]
[E]In the Dark, who can reach him?[D/F#] [E]
[E]He hides like a child[D/F#] [E]
[E]He hides like a child[A] [B]
[B]Keeps his finger on the trigger[A] [B]
[B/F#]He can't stand the [C#m]day
[E]Shoot out the lights[E] [E/G#] [D/F#] [E]
[E]Shoot out the lights[E] [E/G#] [D/F#] [E]
Keep the blind down on the window
Keep the pain on the inside
Just watching the dark
Just watching the dark
And he might laugh but you won't see him
As he thunders through the night
Shoot out the Lights
Shoot out the Lights

In the darkness the shadows move
In the darkness the game is real
Real as a gun
Real as a gun
As he watches the streets of the city
And he moves through the night
Shoot out the lights
Shoot out the lights
Shoot out the lights
