In Case of Emergency

it’s ok it’s alright there’s no one within sight
and we turned out all the lights and locked the doors
there’s no one within miles we should be all grins and smiles
there’s no one here to hurt us anymore
and the walls are covered in a brand new coat of paint
and the sound that lingered once has gone away – hey hey
and the smoke that fills the room is captured by the moon
that tries to shine its light on you and me
what do you think? what do you need?
and can you tell by the way I talk you are not what I need
well I know there’s no TV not a single luxury
but a telephone in case of an emergency

“don’t take yourself so seriously,” she said,
“you know you’re better off dead than to be stuck here inside this place with me.”
well, it’s been one year since I fell in love with you and now I’m over you
and I still think that you don’t believe I’m true
and the ceiling is textured in a way I wouldn’t describe
and your magazines left are no longer subscribed – you caught my eye
and the blinds that are shut tonight are blocking out the light
that the moon tries to shine on you and me
what do you think? what do you need?
and can you tell by the way I talk you are not what I need
well I know there’s no TV not a single luxury
but a telephone in case of an emergency, alright

and the walls are covered in a brand new coat of paint
and our love that lingered once was just a light switch away
and the blood dripping down your face is no longer misplaced
as the moon shines it’s light down on me
what do you think? what do you need?
and can you tell by the way I talk you are not what I need
well I know there’s no TV not a single luxury
but a telephone in case of an emergency
