Well you say you have a friend
You trust him with your life
You trust him with your car, you trust him with your kids
You even trust him with your wife

You better watch what’s going down when the lights go out
When the night is dark, when there ain’t nobody looking around
When the lights go out
Down in this dirty little town

Well now the world is dark and funny
You better listen to what I say
You ain’t gonna know what’s going on
By what you see in the light of day

You better watch what’s going on when the lights go out
When the night is dark, when there ain’t nobody looking around
When the lights go out
Down in this dirty little town

Well now baby she trusted billy
With reason you understand
But billy he kept coming home late at night
And in the morning he had that smell on his hand

Well now the world is turning
Rome is burning
Me I’m watching
And I’m learning
They say it sure is god’s hand in the ticking of the clock
The lord’s light shining under every dirty rock

Well now last night I slept right here
And I heard god’s voice whisper in my ear

You better watch what’s going on when the lights go out
When the night is dark, when there ain’t nobody looking around
When the lights go out
Down in this dirty little town
Down in this dirty little town
Down in this dirty little town
