When the lights go down
He'll be fillin' a pan with a broom in his hand
In some dive across town
He'll be wipin' the bar, and moppin' the floor
Countin' his tips and lockin' the doors
Restlin' with the devil that tells him to pour another round

When the lights go down
She'll be callin' her friends from the Mercedes Benz
But it's too late now
They were there for the fame, the flash and thrill
The drop of the name, the parties, and the pills
So another star falls from the Hollywood hills
Without a sound

When the lights go down
And there's nothing left to be
When the lights go down
And the truth is all you see

When you feel that hole
Inside your soul
Wonder what you're made of
Well we all find out
When the lights go down

When the lights go down
At the end of the day
With this game that I play
Has gone another round
As I lay there alone in this big empty bed
Nothing but thoughts of you in my head
I think of the things that I wish I had said
When you were still around

When the lights go down
And there's nothing left to be
When the lights go down
And the truth is all you see

And I wonder if all my life's about
The sum of all my fears and all my doubts
Yeah, when the lights go down

When the lights go down
When there's nothing left to be
When the lights go down
And the truth is all you see
When you feel that hole
Inside your soul
Wonder what your made of
Well we all find out
When the lights go down

Oooo, when the lights go down

    For me, this song is about, how at the end of a busy day, and we are faced with ourselves and nothing more, what do we see? When alone in the dark, I see someone who is too scared to admit the lonliness to himself, and someone who, for all extent and purposes, hides in the darkness from the truth so evident to him.
