lyrics

HOOK +++

THE SUN.
everybody lying out in the THE SUN
all my tears are drying out in the THE SUN
the food up on my plate it came from THE SUN
the mood i’m in today it came from THE SUN

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY BE DONE.
darkness melting in THE SUN.
everybody out riding round in the SUN
ain’t nothing to cry about when you're in the SUN.

VERSE 1 +++

it’s funny how whenever the sun is out
i somehow, forget all about the bullshit that i was bumbing out about
back on monday when i was coming down.
shit. almost hung my self but somehow brung myself up

gotta be something bout the way the sun vibrates
that effects my mind state, and yes i’m high AF
fuck it’s friday and i got my happy shoes on
but that ain’t the grass that's the star that it grew from

and the rain that came from the rock that it flew on
to get here. it’s easy to forget we’re just new on
this planet. Us humans ain’t bin around for too long
the sun though? it’s bin around for minute now. when you move on

it’ll still be spinning , like this rock that you on.
the sun, how many laps you bin around since you were born?
let’s celebrate that day. blow the candles off the cake.
before mother nature blows the bugs off her face. the sun.

VERSE 2 +++
The night killer. Life beginner. All praise due to the divine light giver
Known by many names throughout the ages the son of god, light of the world, the saviour

But long before any of this it was adorned through carvings, writings, paintings on the wall from Greece India, Persia to Nepal, China, Assyria, Japan the list goes on

For the night time was a blind predator filled darkness without heat or light crops would die before harvest
The saviour that kept the people from starving personified by man this is where it started

Like folk songs sung to preserve a tradition these stories were told carrying ancient wisdom
Thousands of years before the one they called christ the same story is told through the zodiac signs

And hundreds of other places scattered around the globe yet none of these other stories ever get told
Blame rome, blame our need for control, blame the greedy, blame the book, blame the vultures who prey upon the needy

Blame anyone who ever killed in the name of God for the one true creator has no interest in war
The night killer. Life beginner.
All praise due to the divine light giver. The Sun.


POEM
The Sun
ball of cancer and light
gold tooth smile
in a cloudless ocean

The sun
washing the night
into gutters
those with fortunes and the less fortunate
frolic together beneath

The Sun
I am hell bound jesus
walking barefoot over melted ashfelt
hands out
towards the

The Sun
traveling light years
to be right here
with me
dripping space nectar
forgetting desperate
winters now

The Sun
gracing us with its magnanimous presence
working parent
with night shift blues
cleaning windows in celestial heavens

The Sun

essence of life
gold tooth smile
in a cloudless sky
