Has the l[Bb]ight gone out for you?
Because the [Dm]light's gone for me
It is the 2[C]1st century
It is the [F/D]21st century
You can [Bb]fight it like a dog
And they br[Dm]ought me to my knees
They got s[C]cared and they put me in
They got s[F/D]cared and they put me in
All the l[Bb]ies run around my face
All the l[Dm]ies run around my face
And for a[C]nybody else to see
And for a[F/D]nybody else to see
I'm alive[G]...
