The Lyrics

You ever latch on to the worst-case scenario and let the inevitable paranoia consume your life? This guy has...
I can't lie-ie
I'm not up on "sci-i-i-i-i-ie-e-ence"
But I have rea-ea-ead
That the yellow ball up hi-igh
Is not a fixed
Element and that sca-a-a-a-a-ares me-e-e
Pretty sure
We still need that thing fo-or li-ife
Existence ma-ay be bo-o-o-o-o-ori-i-ing
But a world wi-ith
No bright days is not ri-ight
And I think that
I read it would ki-ill pla-a-a-a-a-ants too (ooh-ooh-ooh)
If the sun (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Was not there blinding us with li-i-ight (ooh-ooh-ah)

Don't let the su-u-u-un go out on me-e-e (we need the-e sun) (ah)
That wouldn't end up well, that should be very plai-ain to see-ee-ee (ah-ah)
Whether it just goes "phut" or it blows ri-ight (we need the-e sun) (ah-ah-ah)
Up lit'rally-y-y-y (no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no) (ah-ah)
But whichever it i-i-is
Don't let the sun go ri-ight out o-o-on me

I know I'm
Overreacting, too ri-i-ight
I know the sun
Won't blow up while I live
But now the thought
Is inside my mind, it won't piss o-o-off
Makes me think of ma-a-ad
Scientists or alien pri-icks

Don't let the su-u-u-un go out on me-e-e (we need the-e sun) (ah)
I'm paranoid? I know, just play along and a-assure me-e (he-elp now) (ah-ah)
That the eradication of all li-ife (we need the-e sun) (ah-ah-ah)
Won't happen, plea-ea-ea-ease (no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no) (ah-ah)
My brain won't let it re-e-est
Don't let the sun go ri-ight out o-o-on me

Don't let the su-u-un go ou-out on me-e-e-e-e (we need the-e sun) (ah)
If you were a real friend, you'd make this small promi-ise for me-e (please he-elp now) (ah-ah)
Or at least help get the thought out my mi-ind (we need the-e sun) (ah-ah-ah)
No, don't hurt me-e, yeah-eah-eah-eah (no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no-ooh) (ah-ah)
Just promise me one thing
Don't let the sun go ri-ight out o-o-on me

I just realised I could've had some sort of vampire reference, as the lack of sun would be a thing they'd want (despite the fact that that'd kill the plants, thus killing the animals thus killing the humans thus killing the vampires - I think that was a point in the Dawnguard DLC for Skyrim, haven't played it...yet). Oh well.

There is a group of people in North Carolina (I think) who are against solar panels because "they could drain the sun and it could go out." They might take your song as gospel! I just find it funny :)

if the sun were ever to go out during out lifetime there is only one thing we could say at a time like that: "Sun I Am Disappoint" 5's
