Light Up Mississippi

Album: Thriving Ivory (2008)
  • The silence never changes
    In the city with no name
    Would you come down after midnight
    Leave the rest of us to shame
    Why don't we talk to the dead
    When the living's all the same
    Why do we crawl like babies
    Why don't we light up anyway

    Come down Mississippi, tonight
    As we all watch under big lights

    You grow up fast and lonely
    With the lines to mark your face
    Bet you never felt so empty
    Have you wasted all your days?

    We're you born from the seed of disguise?
    Do you pray to become undone?
    You're the best of all that you know
    So uncover me in the big lights

    [Chorus: ]
    Come down Mississippi tonight
    As we all watch under big lights
    Why don't you come down Mississippi tonight
    As we all watch under big lights

    Why don't we talk to the dead
    When the living's all the same
    Why do we crawl like babies, baby
    Why don't we light up anyway

    [Chorus: Repeat 2X]
    Come down, come down , oohh oh Writer/s: CLAYTON STROOPE, SCOTT LEE JASON
