PVT: LIght Up Bright Fires lyrics

Aside from the Social Network soundtrack, which justly just won an Oscar, I think the album I listened to most last year was PVT's Church With No Magic. So I was a little surprised when I went looking for lyrics to it recently and came up with nothing. Just listen to this song. It's like if Radiohead had INXS's Michael Hutchence for a lead singer:



Even searching for partial lines of these lyrics found nothing, so I transcribed them myself. Can any PVT fans help me out here? Here's what I have:

Never in my whole life / nor in fantasy
Would I end up here / dancing with the enemy
Friends are all married / jobs in the city
No one wants to be there / no one wants to meet

At night we rise / Light up bright fires

Too much of a good thing / coming from a bad place
How did I get here / Beaten in my own race
And all along good night / Garbage in the main street
All God's mysteries / Left up on the back seat

At night we rise / Light up bright fires
At night we rise / Light up bright fires
At night we rise / Light up bright fires
At night we rise / Light up bright fires
Light up bright fires

"Friends are all married, jobs in the city.
No one's a millionaire, no one wants to be."

"Too much of a good thing, coming from a bad place."

Otherwise, well done! =]

It could also be "No one's a millionaire, no one wants to meet."

That last word is what made me search for lyrics in the first place!

hey guys, i am totally into this song!!!
but isn´t it :

"Too much of a good thing, coming from a mad place"
?

i was trying to read his lips, but it´s pretty tough.
and i think "no one wants to meet..." would be right..?
best wishes and thanks so far!
