From the album River Utopia

Lyrics

STREET LIGHTS

There's no reason, there's no promise for those intent on disarray
Casting shadows in the darkness and blindly they will follow to the fray

It's all in the detail the diagrams been laid
Gonna rule the world and get rich beyond belief
They'll put mansions on the hill, with mind to break your will
And spin you round

Street lights, straight lines, when rivers cease to flow we go down
Street lights, straight lines, gonna roll the dice and throw underground, underground, underground

There's no progress in this progression forced to beg and borrow to make our way
It's survival, gold and treasure, they depend on your weakness every day

The things we take for granted, with our heads beneath the sand
Our stultified consumption the beneficent hand
You know they'd shoot to kill, just to get their fill
And take you down

Street lights, straight lines, when rivers cease to flow we go down
Street lights, straight lines, gonna roll the dice and throw underground, underground, underground, underground

Well the writings on the wall, are we willing to take the fall
There are many who believe in the benevolent man
And in our darkest day, who should lead the way
We should leave it to someone who understands

It's all in the detail the diagrams been laid
They gonna rule the world and get rich beyond belief
They'll put mansions on the hill, just to satisfy their fill
And spin you round

Street lights, straight lines, when rivers cease to flow we go down
Street lights, straight lines, gonna roll the dice and throw underground, underground, underground, underground. underground
