Song Description

After the environmental apocalypse, one man looks back on our denial.


Before the cities burned
Before machines turned to rust.
Before I buried my family
in this land of bones and dust.

Before it was too late
Great men chose to hide or run.
Left us to stand alone
Said "you might as well be running from the sun."

I was slow to anger
Fast to fear
I watched the waters rise
I saw the wild disappear.

My sins of silence
Will sing forevermore
And keep my lost soul
Eternally running from the sun

The factories roared
The money poured in
And we pretended like we didn't know
Till the rain was lost
The air was choked
And the crops refused to grow.

And all over the world
War cut us down to size
There's nothing left to fight for
But I can not close my eyes

Cause if you choose to dream
Instead of see what the mornings become
You might as well be running from the sun.

Oh no, oh no
Here comes the sun
I'm waking up
