Reinventing Light

car lights across the ceiling
the night shines a devilish grin
and you can’t help yourself from feeling like
something lurks within
let this serve as a reminder
there’s only so much time to lose
and if the world were a little kinder
you could do anything you choose
but you’re right here
where you’re climbing up the walls
and you just go along with it
like you’re used to it all
you don’t dwell on the reflections
you just want the good times to last

so tell me my fortune
yeah, fill my mind’s desires
or electrify my visions
with your single-coiled wire
and I’ll tell the world about it
with a thousand scattered fliers
how the light has been reinvented
just to start a fire
