Run, run 'till you drop
Hide, everyone knows
We all trade in never-befores
Selling out for the score

Prey, squeal when you're caught
Cry, it's not my fault
Time to trade in never-befores
Selling out for the score

It seems you prophesised
All of this would end
Were you burned away
When the sun rose again?

(Solo)

Hate, long wearing thin
Negative, all you've been
Time to trade in never-befores
Selling out for the score

It seems you prophesised
All of this would end
Were you burned away
When the sun rose again?

It seems you prophesised
All of this would end
Were you burned away
When the sun rose again?

    The sun rose again means to me its anther day try and have a good one or its a good moment after a dark period if that makes sense i think its a broad meaning though which jerry is great at writting theses broad songs with multiple meanings but the main message is always there thats what makes him a great writer

    Meant for those who said world would end. Possibe for an individual. Clearly they have sold out to the beast and are telling those who wish to run from what is coming that they sould just sell out too. Song seems too personel and is probably meant for the false profit who will reveal the mystery of god, just like shine on you crazy diamond. Squeel when your caught: is talking about the persecution of the saints and those who know the truth, by the beast gov. And fallen angels during the tribulation. "the dragon gives his power unto the beast to make war against the saints and to overcome them. "-rev.

    Someone died when the sun rose again as it always does. Your life is about to end but for sun it doesn't matter who is dead and who is alive . That moment you realized you wasted all your life for money aka paper. Be thankful you are not dead yet ! Smile.
