07. Lights Out

Going Public
by Newsboys



 

Last one turns the lights out and
Makes sure every curtain's drawn.
Nails the shutters shut. He's sure
We are not of this world for long.
Who do you think you are?
Did you figure out the date?
What do you hope to do
While you sit around and wait, wait, wait?

Last one turns the lights out and
Disconnects the answer-phone.
Stuffs all sense of mission. Says
"I just can't turn the tide alone."
Who do you think you are?
Did you figure out the time?
What do you hope to do
While you hide out and whine, whine, whine

Don't go shutting down
'Til the trumpet sounds
And the battle is won.
Don't go punchin' out
'Til the final shout
And the Father says, "Well done."

Last one turns the lights out and
Just keeps playing dumb.
These were his instructions. He's
Not sure where he got 'em from.
Why do you wanna hide
In a separate class?
Why do you buy the lie
Of a faith under glass, glass, glass

Don't go shutting down
'Til the trumpet sounds
And the battle is won.
Don't go punchin' out
'Til the final shout
And the Father says, "Well done."

Last one shoots the lights out and
Climbs up to the top of the roof.
He's sitting there 'til the Second Coming.
Says he's got mathematical proof.
Who do you think you are?
Did you figure out the date?
What do you hope to do
While you sit around and wait, wait, wait

Don't go shutting down
'Til the trumpet sounds
And the battle is won.
Don't go punchin' out
'Til the final shout
And the Father says, "Well done."
