Lever Pulled Down

This song is by Sam Phillips and appears on the compilation album Solid State: Songs From The Long Play (2011).

Original video
In this dead-eyed world
How long before they tell you how far you've come
What do you have to do to make good
And when can we raise the roof to the stars

I'm a lever pulled down
I'm a flipped switch
I'm a lever pulled down
From the fire in the air
I'm a lever pulled down
And I'll give my life for the lightning in our dreams

In this dead-eyed world
You've gotta keep your gaze steady and long
And when good fortune turns away
Be willing to go on alone

I'm a lever pulled down
I'm a flipped switch
I'm a lever pulled down
From the fire in the air
I'm a lever pulled down
And I'll live my life for the lightning in our dreams

In this dead-eyed world
They say you'll never make it
With only a half a life more
But love's electric raises up
What the whole world leaves behind

I'm a lever pulled down
I'm a flipped switch
I'm a lever pulled down
And I don't know why it's so
I'm a lever pulled down
And I'll live my life for the lightning in our dreams

From the lightning in our dreams
I live this life
