"Turn the jukebox up," he said/Dancing in irreverence/"Play C3, let the song protest."

vs.
One man stands on the edge of the ocean/a beacon on dry land/Eyes upon the horizon/in the dark before the dawn

vs.
Behind her eyes there's curtains/ and they've been closed to hide the flames

38. If I knew where it was I would take you there/there's much more than this
vs.
Like a tear in all we know/once dissolved we are free to grow

this broken wheel is coming undone/and the road's exploded

Blackout weaves its way through the cities

vs.
For every tool they lend us, a loss of Independence

Oh I will stare the sun down, until my eyes go blind
