"WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT"

Verse 1
Breakin' in the windows,
Kickin' down the doors,
The System we were so proud of
Came crashing to the floor.
Well, there's camera's on the ceiling,
But no power to make them see;
Until the law comes out of hiding
There'll be anarchy on these streets!

Chorus
When the lights go out and the sirens fall silent,
The only law we'll have is what's written on our hearts!
You know what love's about, it's never too late to try it.
This may be our chance to make a brand new start!

Verse 2
Riots in the broad day light,
Fires light the dark,
Looting in the shopping malls,
And bodies in the park.
Now the only law around these parts
Is "Look out for yourself!"
Well, I'm not too sure what Heaven's like,
But I know this must be Hell!

[Repeat Chorus]

Bridge
To teach this world, to help each other,
To change this world, tolove one another!

Chorus
When the lights go out and the sirens fall silent,
The only law we'll have is what's written on our hearts!
You know what love's about, it's never too late to try it.
This may be our chance to make a brand new start!
Whoa yeah!
