When the music's over
When the music's over
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights

When the music's over
When the music's over
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights

For the music is your special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end

Cancel my subscription to the resurrection
Send my credentials to the house of detention
I got some friends inside

The face in the mirror won't stop
The girl in the window won't drop
A feast of friends, alive, she cried, waitin' for me outside

Before I sink into the big sleep I want to hear, I want to hear the scream of the butterfly
Come back, baby, back into my arms
We're getting' tired of hangin' around with, waitin' around with our heads to the ground
I hear a very gentle sound
Very near yet very far, very soft and very clear
Come today babe, come today
What have they done to the earth?
What have they done to our fair sister?
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences and dragged her down
I hear a very gentle sound with your ear down to the ground

SHUT UP

Now is that any way to behave at a rock and roll concert?
You don't wanna hear that for the next half hour, do you?
Alright, sssh
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Damn, give, give the singer some, man
A'right
We want the world and we want it… NOW

Persian night babe, see the light babe
Save us babe, Jesus, save us babe

Well, that's New York for ya
The only people that rush the stage are guys, you know

So when the music's over
When the music's over
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Well the music is your special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end

Thank you, thank you, alright
