Presenting modern moonlight just as advertised
Coke and Pepsi finally found a compromise
How can they complain that were all fucked up kids
When they keep on changing who our mother is?

Like it all you want, its fruitless
Night is in the way of progress

Retinas are bleeding for the enterprise
Surgically wired into paradise
Yesterday I dropped in at the MKB
Everyone was messaging, like it was going out of style
It was just the cynic in me, God, I love communicating
I just hate the shit were missing

Everybody join in the magnificence
Yes, everything is absolutely making sense
Every time you turn around your soul gets sold
To the highest bidder, then they turn around and merger
And they merger and they merger, they murder and they murder
The one who murders most will take it all

Fight it all you want, its useless
Night is in the way of progress

Were gonna take your cities one by one
Cut your cables, cut your cords and spoil all your fun
Were gonna make your light a living hell
'Coz stripped of your equipment, youll be forced to face yourself

Wire cutters of the world, you know what to use it for
Spread the word to all the tightrope walker boys and girls
Brace yourself for miracles, youre in for a nasty shock
When the war is over, you can read the paper
When the war is over, you can read the paper

Songwriters
Palmer, Amanda
