"Night on the Sun" as written by and Brock/judy/green....
So, turn off the light 'cause it's light of the sun
You're hopelessly hopeful
I hope so, for you

Freeze your blood and then stab it into in two
Stab your blood into me and blend
I eat my own blood and get filled up get filled up;
I get filled up on me and end so turn off the light
'Cause it's night on the sun you're hopelessly hopeless

I hope so, for you
Turn off the light 'cause it's night on the sun
You're hopelessly hopeless
I hope so, for you

Freeze your blood and then stab it into in two
Stab your blood into me and end
I eat my own blood and get filled up get filled up
I get filled up on me and end
Freeze your blood and then stab it into me
Freeze your blood and then stab it into me
Freeze your blood and then stab it in two into me and blend
Turn off the light 'cause it's night on the sun
You're hopelessly hopeless
I hope so, for you

Well there's one thing to know about this town
It's five hundred miles underground; and that's alright
Well there's one thing to know about this globe
It's bound and it's willing to explode and that's alright
Well there's one thing to know about this town
Not a person doesn't want me underground
There's one thing to know about this town
It's five hundred miles underground; and that's OK
There's one thing to know about this earth
We're put here just to make more dirt; and that's OK
Night on the sun

    My InterpretationWrote this out while I had an epiphany regarding the meaning of this song - January 4th, around noontime. I was tweaking on Vyvanse and propylhexedrine during literature class (as I'm the scum of the earth, scourge of mankind), but nevertheless, this is, and will always be, my notion about this track. Here is exactly what I wrote, unedited, unaltered, no censorship. Here we go:

    "Night on The Sun" is about reclusiveness. The title alone depicts the concept of an imposed (sometimes self-) loneliness. The line, ["Turn off the light cuz its night on the sun, & your hopelessly hopeless, our hopes are all for you"] that permeates the song details the idea of closing yr curtains, and the reactions of those around you. Isaac is trying to say "your friends give a shit".
    The idea of ["freeze yr blood & then stab it into me"] is reflecting how a recluse wants someone to come his way and help him out of his depressive pitfall {*Empathize w. him}. He then proceeds to write ["I eat my own blood & get filled up, I get filled up on me"], another piece that shows a reclusive (or at least avoidant) lifestyle - The narrator quits needing other people as company (hearken back to the -phenomenal- chorus of Baby Blue Sedan - "I'm never lonesome when I'm by myself"), and proceeds to make do with only himself and his mind for company, whether it be with drugs, terebii, Japanimation (Brock's waifu is Witch Hunter Robin), or anything.
    Last few lines of the song are both the most powerfully sung, and poignantly meaningful ["Well, there's one thing to know about this town, it's 500 miles underground! (It's alright...), well, there's one thing to know about this globe, it's bound & it's willing to explode (It's alright)"] The climax ends with something like "ain't nobody who wants me underground, which proves the Narrator (Isaac) accepts his friend's help. Good end?

    For the record, this is probably one of my favorite songs, by my favorite band. Still don't have -the- favorite, but this is definitely on the list.

    My InterpretationI think but don't know for sure the song is about Jesus...
    hahaha, well, Jesus eats his own flesh, since people in passover consume Jesus's flesh with bread (and wine?). I think I'm not sure, I just say this b/c I've never been through catechism and up until a year ago didn't know that Jesus was revered in some sort of ritual meal. It also fits that mold, where all people are god's children, and those who believe in jesus are inherently eating their own blood since they come from the same strand. Some jibber-jabber of such, but I think the tone is indicative of the speaker's attitude. Which is that Jesus is visicous and self-serving, loves himself more and inflicts pain upon people through robbing them of hope. Hope serves as a form of self-help and replaces the rules of religion, hope is really the individual's understanding that to keep living is an act of investing in what the future brings, the composite opposite of nihilism. When you think of religion, conquering hope, an illogical fallacy occurs and blinds you to what's really happending. In the lyrics, Brock is using Jesus giving him a voice that hopes the people hopeless so they will invest in him as their savior. Within this power of peoples faith, the narrator, Jesus, demonstrates his capacity to control the people, even the audience; he tells us
    "Well, there's one thing to know about this town
    Not a person doesn't want me underground
    There's one thing to know about this town
    It's five hundred miles underground; and that's ok
    There's one thing to know about this earth
    We're put here just to make more dirt, and that's ok"
    Speaking in idioms, the narrator in the end communicates the sentiment that he is unwanted, the people undergound,or in hell, and the people are all without an essential purpose.
    Yet the ending of "Night on the sun" sends the contradition that flips the meaning, a contradication since in raw conception the sun gives day, creates it, and the abuse of what to think what to acutalize becaomes a surrealist hell of who to beleive; the attittde says don't beleive in Jesuss.

    General CommentJust to end this whole hopeful/hopeless argument: Every time he says it, it's definitely hopeless. Hopelessly hopeless. I'm absolutely positive. I'm surprised that anyone even thought it was hopeful, it doesn't sound like it at all.

    Anyway....This is an amazing song. Some people might complain about it for being long and repeating the lyrics a lot, but in my opinion every repeated line had meaning, and the length just makes it the great song that it is.
