Speeding Through the Bright Lights

she was out of time
she was a model prisoner
she was a thousand mysteries
she loved her champions
you know we’re all scared
but covet irreverence
it takes a plastic soul
for a plastic system
beethoven is here
the ghosts are listening
what’s going on here
something weird is happening

there’s a light on in the world
let it shine on all your hurts
it’s the beauty it’s the cross
i can’t stand losing what i’ve lost

the war is over
the war has just begun
so much injustice
i’m a heartless son
it’s the sound of the furies
it’s the sound of love
and the dead have fallen
to another earth
beethoven is here
the ghosts are listening
what’s going on here
something weird is happening

there’s a light on in the world
let it shine on all your hurts
it’s the beauty it’s the cross
i can’t stand losing what i’ve lost

speeding through the bright lights
i lost myself last night
speeding through the bright lights
i lost myself last night
speeding
speeding
speeding

there’s a light on in the world
let it shine on all your hurts
it’s the beauty it’s the cross
i can’t stand losing what i’ve lost

there’s a light on in the world
let it shine on all your hurts
let it shine on all your hurts
let it shine

all your hurts
all your hurts
all your hurts
