Lamps... and earthing?

Hello. I'm new to electronics (hence why i'm here). Why do lamps not require or need an earth? Eg a three prong plug? I have searched google and get differing answers. Wouldn't it be safer if it had an earth?

If the casing of your lamp is conductive, it would potentially make it safer. However, most lamps you will encounter are wired with 2-prong plugs. It's fairly standard.
