this is the closing
of our hearts, of our minds
of all we've found yet left behind
of community

this is the closing
of the lights, of hope
of all we thought we'd know
of all we've seen

good night and goodbye

last century's fox
is this century's failure
in the chaos of the final blackout
this show is over

an eternal gnashing of teeth
an absence of god, unamplified screams
return to dreams
this show is over

good night and goodbye

this is the closing
with regret, with spite
ask yourself when we say good night
can you be certain?

this is the closing
eyes are useless, all is blindness
that bitch Time will bring
the fall of the curtain

this is the closing
we gouge our eyes, we blow our minds
we burn out
we can't be switched on all of the time

good night and goodbye
