Blackout

Clubbing loves and digging spades
Beating hearts with diamond blades

It's getting darker out
Thunder snow clouds looming
It's much too dark for clouds
Could be night or dooming

Blackjack tables, vingt-et-un - carte a la banque

The left bank and the right bank
Both got lost in the shuffle
Selling hate and progress
And everyone got hustled

Blackjack tables, vingt-et-un - carte a la banque

A world divided over what is real
And what simple things can do
People being led to think and feel
That real things just aren't true

We can't even agree
Why we argue about it
Up and down and right or wrong
But darker by the minute

Blackjack tables, vingt-et-un - carte a la banque

It's getting darker out
Because the world is spinning
Dark is night and time to see
I wonder who is winning

Blackjack tables, vingt-et-un - carte a la banque

Blackjack or a blackout
The house bet always pays

Clubbing loves and digging spades
Beating hearts with diamond blades

Twenty-twenty-one
