Islands - Set the fairlight

i guess it's my fate
something I can't shake
there it goes again
somewhere near the end
from an echo in the concert halls
to the cemetery walls
there ain't nothing i can do
to get next to you
with your face up against the wall
here comes the night
set the fairlight
when there's nowhere to go
put a bomb in the place
and if nobody moves
then nobody can trace it
there's something in the way
i can't explain
it's on the left side
if it don't feel right
there's something in the way
that the rhythm relayed
now is it even there?
sometimes I don't know
and you don't hear the knock
so nobody come in
when you go right to the end
there's nowhere to begin
now i got someone to let me in
i guess that's the way
that it moves along
i can't hardly wait
to see where it goes wrong
from the echo from inside the halls
to the front of cemetery walls
there ain't nothing i can do
to get next to you
with your face
up against the wall

here comes the night
set the fairlight
where will you go to
come away with your life?
when you charge with a gun
and you run with a knife
now you're over the road
and you're under the light
when there's nowhere to go
and nobody to fight
i know how you move
with the bang of a drum
and you jump from the roof
when you don't feel the hum
there's nothing in your way
somethings you can't explain
but you don't hear the knock
so nobody come in
when you go right to the end
there's nowhere to begin
now i got someone to let me in
from the echo in the concert halls
to the cemetery walls
there ain't nothing i can do
to get next to you
with your face up against the wall
here comes the night
set the fairlight
i'm gonna set the fairlight
i'm gonna set the fairlight
i'm gonna set the fairlight
i'm gonna set the fairlight
