Staring At The Sun
by TV on the Radio

Cross the street from your storefront cemetery.
Hear me hailing from inside and realize

I am the conscience clear
In pain or ecstacy
And we're all weaned my dear
Upon the same fatigue

We're staring at the sun
Oh my own voice
Cannot save me now
Standing in the sea
It's just
One more breath
And then
I'll go down

Your mouth is open wide
The lover is inside
And the tumult's done
Collided with the sign
You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
Your body's over me

Note the trees because the
Dirt is temporary
More to mine than fact, face,
Name, and monetary

Beat the skins and let the
Loose lips kiss you clean
Quietly pour out like light
Like light, like answering (chorus comes over this part) the sun

You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
Your mouth is open wide
You're trying hard to breath
The water's at your neck
There's lightning in your teeth
Your body's over me

Be what you will
And then throw down your life
Oh it's a damned fine game
And we can play all night

You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
Your mouth is open wide
You're trying hard to breath
The water's at your neck
There's lightning in your teeth
Your body's over me

You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea

I love the restrained tension in that song, and the fact that it never breaks out and remains unresolved. That's beautiful.

Dip Thongthathongthongthong

Yes. You initially might want the drop, the crashing drums, the transition to the "next level." It never comes and you come to appreciate that.

Sean W

Perfect commentary.

Daniel Stocker

Took me nine years to reply to this and I don't know why.

Daniel Stocker

Like a lot of us sadly, it portrays that pretty well.

Frath Groop

That is PRECISELY how it hit when I was 15 and stuck in a VERY abusive home, surrounded by boys at school who were scared of me but wanted to play with me at the same time. This walking implosion. Constantly cracking, never actually breaking.

Laura M

Still enjoying this most sensual of songs in 2019. That lightning in my teeth

DontStopRemula

Laura M Damn same here hon! We can never let his die

mikisotak

Every time I hear this song is like hearing it for first time.

Ashley Chérie
