Where do we go,
Now the lights are out?

The singer’s words
Have scattered and
The burning tempo stalled

Unease is a knife
In the alley
Your grace is overturned

We were beautiful
Now just ourselves
But, man, those players burned

Where do we go,
Now the lights are out?
My radiator’s broken
But you can stay a little while

I danced you to the bottom
I held you towards the sky
The airwaves rumble empty
So kiss me like a lie

There’s no jazz here tonight, my friends
No scat, no swing, no cats
Just dogs with chains and bones
Howling at our backs

There’s no jazz here tonight, no no
You lovely boys and girls
Get home to your records and rotgut
And get yourselves unfurled
