The Lyrics

I hate Daylight Savings Time...
Hello darkness, my old friend
it’s daylight savings once again
now the dusk so early starts it’s creeping
instead of exercising, I’m sleeping
And my waistband, from the calories unplanned
Still expands
I blame the lack of daylight

It’s much too early to turn in
it’s that or Netflix once again
the dogs already waiting there for me
as soon as I crash they all have to pee
Then all hell breaks loose when they return to me
with energy
I blame the lack of daylight

Whoever’s stupid idea was this was
They should be strung up by their (radio edit)
A societal practice once based on farming
The mental health of all 'tis now harming
I contemplate injustice through the long hours of the night
It’s just not right
I blame the lack of daylight.

In the morn, still vegetal
The sunlight searing all things retinal
I face the workday full of fear and dread
Stumbling through it like the walking dead
No amount of caffeine seems to do the trick for me
Don’t they see
I blame the lack of daylight.

The negative effects of Daylight Savings Time are well documented. I think it only survives because it gives politicians the illusion that they control the cosmos including time itself. The subject is so grim, I think this should be sung to "Disturbed"'s version of "Sounds of Silence".
