Daylight to sundown
lights go on
lights turn out
Neon slips to shadow
this is not my town
Thoughts of mine,
turn inside out
as everything fades
white to black
black to white

Newsman's dashin
stocks are crashin
words spillin off the print
Flashbulbs flashin
all the fashion
but nobody seems
to take the hint

It's they and their lives
as everything fades
white to black
black to white

It's all so retro
a blast in from the past
Us against them
right and wrong
too easily assessed

It's mighty mighty grim
when all I see
is a bright red hot rim
Can't you see
that bright red hot rim
Yet,all they see is
white to black
black to white

Then it begins again

in the starlight
white to black
black to white
When will it end
There must be more
shades of truth to blend
than white to black
black to white

Daylight to sundown
lights turn on
lights go out

Buddy Bee Anthony/Melissa A. Howells
