With the Lights Out 

The power went out
so we spent the night
lighting candles and
making up stories

no Xbox
no PS3
no PC
no music
just you & me
and them
and no electricity

we had more fun
than we’d had in years
if we could only unplug
on demand we would be free

a mere few hours without power
read about the dark ages
but can’t imagine living
with torches & cold water

one night without lights
if we could only surrender
our technological advances
our spoils of riches

maybe we could be free
maybe we could be free of
hindrances
we were free for one night

for a few hours we were free
