The Lyrics

Okay, who killed the lights?
Did you forget a few bills? Only asking because I
Have put a big dent in my shin for, like, the seventh time
You say I should stop swearing a proverbial storm
But I say there's a limit to my torch
Stupid torch, yeah

Not accustomed to this limited light
Have you broken your bulbs? Are they alright?
If that's not it, then what's going on here, please?
Cause whatever is causing this error
Is producing in me this terror
That the pole that I'm holding ain't what it seems
If you could please tell me why I'm seeing
A blank void like a movie screening
Where the projector's blown to smithereens
You'd think that the outside lighting
Would peep through, but there's none that I'm finding
What is the deal with the never ending depths?

Somehow my phone has run right out of charge
And all the doors have been locked up tight by you
Why is the sun a thing you just won't show?
As I walk with light not before me
So much danger near so I worry
About how you can stand to live this way
You can't lurk in here with the lights off
You'll end up chewing on the box
Instead of what's inside: the food
Heard a weird, flappy noise there, what was that?
Sounded like an incredibly large bat
Giant bats and darkness? No connection

Yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah, shadowed be thy place
Yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah, shadowed be thy place

I foresee nothing but happy times for our sure-to-be-long-lived protagonist Dedmeet!

Call me a sucker for not seeing that twist ending - or for expecting the whole song to be about some place away from the heatwave; with a shadowed porch , good AC and cold beer. :-)
