Blackout

- 3:57
You were watching your favourite show when the TV died.
The biggest powercut in your neighbourhood since 1989.
A blackout in the centre of town but
Down in the suburbs, where it first went out they've been asking
Asking the question:
Are you afraid of the darkness?
I'm afraid of the darkness too.
In the hospital, on the critical ward,
Too long a breath between the break and the backup of her life support.
One system failure and it stopped her heart;
One power vacuum and we're coming apart.
We should be asking, asking the question:
Are you afraid of the darkness?
I'm afraid of the darkness too.
We're all caught in the blackout,
Trying to feel our way out.
Wait for the morning, I'll be waiting for you.
Meet me in the middle, meet me in the middle,
Bring a burning candle with you.
Meet me in the middle, meet me in the middle,
I will be there waiting for you.
I was in my comfort zone, I was singing selfish songs,
I'd been taking for granted everyone understood how easy trouble comes.
But it's not enough any more.
We can't just turn around and close the door on a world
That's asking uneasy questions.
We should be asking ourselves uneasy questions.
