​Wait for the Blackout

This song is by Alkaline Trio and appears on the split album BYO Split Series Vol. 5 (2005) by ​Alkaline Trio and ​One Man Army and on the album Remains (2007).

Don't you ask me to come out
When the sun does shine
Rather stay here with curtains drawn
In darkness you'll be mine

Let's wait for the blackout
The light is too bright
Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night

Well welcome to my basement flat
No windows to see through
When darkness falls again, my friend
We'll both know what to do

Let's wait for the blackout
The light is too bright
Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night

Wait for the blackout
The light is too bright
Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night

Come walk with me upon the earth
It keeps us both alive
No other thing can last in here
Where we can both survive

Let's wait for the blackout
The light is too bright
Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night

In darkness there is no sin
Light only brings in fear
Nothing to corrupt the eyes
There is no vision here

At first you may find it strange
But please don't go away
There's power in the nighttime
That you won't find in the day

There is no vision here
There is no vision here
No vision here
