The Lyrics

Simple fact of life: blackouts suck.
Na-na, dadala-da-da

Someone killed the lights
Not one or two, they're all gone
Who switched off all the lights?
Inside, outside, they're all gone
Somebody killed the lights
Can't see shit when they're all gone
Which asshole nixed the lights?
All the lampposts, they're all gone (aaaah-ow!)
We kinda need those lights (yeah-eah) (hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Traffic's dead when they're all gone
Whole city's bathed in lights (yeah-eah)
Normally, now they're all gone
We're stuck with zero lights (yeah-eah) (hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Kinda sucks when they're all gone
What happens without those lights (uh-huh-uh)?
Great big barrels of shite, ayy

Okay, let's start with the surplus of car accidents
Though you may think that headlights would put a tight cap on it
But when those high beams are all that you get? Leads to big dents
'Cause traffic lights abandon you, geez, what comes next?
Lampposts? All busted, those who ride on bikes all trust 'em
Without 'em, all buggered, transit gets all stoppered
Bikers get the one line, stay in
You have trouble findin' it? Well, your rides are shit
Not just traffic that's brought low, kill the power grid
And lo, what's blown out makes your work flow get thrown out, huh
You can't shop when your choices have forced doubt
Hard to sell stuff when trust is torn out
Nobody can see shit 'cause some prick pulled a cord out
No-one saw this comin', can't pull a torch out
Don't you say that you did, don't say you
Have some brains, can't see how much hate's on you, you smug dick

Nothin' good happens when the lights have gone phut
Scary, don't dare move, I can't see
Bad things can happen when the lights have gone phut
Brain freaks, don't like that

It's real dark, real dark, real dark
Someone killed the lights (ah)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark
No more power, it's all gone (ah-ooh)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark
More than just the lights (ah)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark (I can't see)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark (I can't see)

A lot more's screwed up when the power's all severed
Ever have your 'net shut off? A minute lost is forever
Servers cut off, online hordes will start swearin' fast
More than they had done just playin'
Killin' the power grid puts ev'ry single bank in trouble
Hospitals are stuffed, man, big restaurants are gonna struggle
Damn, really makes you wonder, wonder
How this whole town's quickly gone under, under, huh
Was it some criminal attack to loot us all now?
Or was it some twat who let all the soft drink fall now?
When they reveal the answer to it all some day
I hope they learn how to prevent it all, replay
Is somethin' no-one wants, pain gets huge gains
When the literal darkest day restarts its game
Still in play, buddy, not gettin' better
There's stuff I can't buy thanks to (maybe) bad weather, sucks

So many problems when the power's gone bust
Scary, don't want to move, can't see
Whole lot of problems when the power's gone bust
Brain freaks, might go mad, yeah-hea-eah-eah

It's real dark, real dark, real dark
Sucks when power dies (ah)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark
Electricity's all gone (ah-ooh)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark
The whole grid has fried (ah)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark (I can't see)
It's real dark, real dark, real dark (I can't see)

Someone fix those lights (those lights)
Can't see shit when they're all gone
'Cause ev'ryone needs lights (those lights)
No more progress, they're all gone
We need to bring back lights (those lights)
Kinda quickly, they're all gone
Must resurrect those lights (those lights)
Zap 'em up now, they're all gone
Somebody fix those lights (yeah-eah) (hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Whole town's dead when they're all gone
Just re-plug in those lights (yeah-eah)
Or whatever, they're all gone
Can't function without lights (yeah-eah) (hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Got no power, they're all gone
What happens without those lights (uh-huh-uh)?
Great big barrels of shite, ayy

Let's start with the surplus of car accidents *crash*

Another simple fact of life: this song should've been a much bigger hit.
