Thriving Ivory – Light Up Mississippi lyrics

The silence never changes
In the city with no name
Would you come down after midnight
Leave the rest of us to shame
Why don't we talk to the dead
When the living's all the same
Why do we crawl like babies
Why don't we light up anyway

Come down Mississippi tonight
As we all watch under big lights

You grow up fast and lonely
With the lines to mark your face
Bet you never felt so empty
Have you wasted all your days?

We're you born from the seed of disguise?
Do you pray to become undone?
You're the best of all that you know
So uncover me in the big lights

So come down Mississippi tonight
As we all watch under big lights
Why don't you come down Mississippi tonight
As we all watch under big lights

Why don't we talk to the dead
When the living's all the same
Why do we crawl like babies, baby
Why don't we light up anyway

Come down Mississippi tonight
As we all watch under big lights, yeah

Why don't you come down Mississippi tonight?
As we all watch under big lights

Come down
Come down
Come down
Come down, yeah
