lyrics

Every fall the leaves start to defect.
I hope the kids get home before the streetlights find them,
and on Hallowe'en we play a little game.
We hide in cardboard boxes from the passing helicopters.

The neighbourhood kids are gathered on lawns,
I've heard them whispering with all their curtains drawn.
I've locked the door, as they assemble
I surmise that the powerlines won't block us
from the helicopters.

A neighbourhood of separate beds, we sleep alone.
Draped in our own worry, we sleep alone.

People making phone calls from their bay window blinds,
the rockets have been signaled
and the mailman steps in time.

A neighbourhood of separate beds, we sleep alone.
Draped in our own worry, we sleep alone.
