Story

I first met Mike Chin some years ago through songwriting workshops and retreats that we both attended on a regular basis.

 

When I gave him the lyrics for Kill The Lights, I never imagined he'd come back with a song that had such a unique and extraordinary sound... yet again, a wonderful, unexpected outcome when surrendering to creative synergy!

Lyrics

V1
We’re trying to find a way through the darkness in our heads
Our dreams are ravaged nightly as we’re laying in our beds
The lonely face of moonlight only makes us cry
That hollow mask could be our last goodbye
CH/TAG
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Set the scene (don’t make me fight)
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Set the scene (don’t make me fight)
V2
Who are they to make decisions? Who are they to judge our souls?
Breathing airs of righteousness, adding to the toll
They say that chains are broken and try to cast the blame
But the rules were set (before I joined) before I joined the game
CH/TAG
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Set the scene (don’t make me fight)
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Quiet please
Bridge
Deprivation feeding incubation
Accusations starving expectation
Deprivation feeding incubation
Accusations starving expectation
CH
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Set the scene (don’t make me fight)
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Set the scene (don’t make me fight)
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Set the scene (don’t make me fight)
Quiet please (kill the lights)
Set the scene (don’t make me fight)
