The Lyrics

Hello darkness, my old friend
soon you'll arrive at 4 PM
And the twilight's softly creeping
in the morning and in evening
in the Autumn, four minutes chopped away
every day
I live in lack of sunlight

It is now wet and cold and grey
the darkness sure is here to stay
And the rain and storms and sludge and snow
makes me think I am about to go -
Insane - and the nights are falling down
in my town
It is the lack of sunlight

I'm restless, cannot get me sleep
watching Netflix makes me "bleep"
Light outside there is so pale and dim
and seawater is too cold to swim
And my eyes - they grow weaker every night
- what a blight!
because of lack of sunlight

And in the pale daylight I saw
skies are grey, now that's last straw
I hear talking without speaking
I hear hearing without listening
I hear voices inside my head again and again
in my brain -
go mad in lack of sunlight

"Fool", said I, it's paint know
darkness like a cancer grows
Climate change has messed the winter up
I think I need still yet another cup
of coffee, just keep me sound and sane
- what a bane!
that darned lack of sunlight

And the people sulk and frown
everyone is hammered down
'Cause November is the cruelest moon
Oh, how much I wish it was now June!
And calendar says it's five weeks till Christmas
and it won't come soon
Oh, sad tune!
I hate the lack of sunlight!

You whine, which means you exist. Now be a nice girl and believe what the scientists say and do what they insist.

Dave, I've too heard they do exist, but how long? The Seychelles are already in the danger of drowning.

And what ever happened to Montserrat? It's pitch black at 5:00 p.m. here. You do live at a more northerly latitude.
