Black Sun
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


There is whisky in the water
And there is death upon the vine
There is fear in the eyes of your father
And there is "Yours" and there is "Mine"
There is a desert veiled in pavement
And there's a city of seven hills
And all our debris flows to the ocean
To meet again, I hope it will

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!

There is an answer in a question
And there is hope within despair
And there is beauty in a failure,
And there are depths beyond compare
There is a role of a lifetime
And there's a song yet to be sung
And there's a dumpster in the driveway
Of all the plans that came undone

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!
How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!

There is whisky in the water
And there is death upon the vine
And there is grace within forgiveness
But it's so hard for me to find

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!
How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you!

There is pain and there is anger
Death coming all the time
I can feel the reaper edging closer
Yet I’m still feeling fine

Was never dying that scared me
That was always life
Never had any balance
But I’m dancing on a knife

Jason McGerr does not get the recognition he deserves. His drum parts are never obvious, yet the always enhance the song. Much respect. He is a huge part of what makes DCFC so good

Definitely, when he joined it was the peak of DCFC

I can agree! When I saw them live a few months ago, he was amazing to see perform.

Everything they write is so poetic, this band is a literature lovers dream and therefore they are my dream.

Linking park comes close to this band. The lyrics of their songs are astounding

This song is how it feels like when something you valued suddenly goes wrong, and you try to accept it. "There is beauty in a failure."

Well said.
