"Assassination of the Sun" as written by Michael Ivins, Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne....
As you walked away
A strand of hair came undone
And was reflected in the sun
And everything was orange

As you disappeared
The shadow of death came undone
And was reflected in the sun
And everything was orange

They have begun to celebrate
The tidal wave they think is great
The ever-beating heart that it wasn't

They have begun
They have begun
They have begun
To assassinate the sun

As you died in the night
A million stars formed into one
And became another sun
And everything was orange

And now this horrible machine
Churns out pain instead of love
And looks just like the sun
And everything was orange

They have begun
They have begun
They have begun
To assassinate the sun

    General CommentThis song is about the horrible feeling you have when someone you are close to passes away. In the song, the sun is replaced by a "horrible machine" consisting of "pain instead of love", but it "looks just like the sun." Everything seems the same on the surface, but you feel that something is deeply wrong beneath the surface.

    General CommentMy inclination is that in this song the sun is meant to represent heaven. I could be looking too deep into this but it seems to me that Wayne is referring to the assassination of what is good in this world by the evils in our daily life. He may be referring to the evangelical movement when he says "they have begun to celebrate the tidal wave they think is great/the ever beating heart that it wasnt" and how from the inside the evangelists see it as a fantastice movement but on the outside theyre running a horrible machine that churns out pain instead of orange, but operates under the facade of something heavenly ("and everything was orange).
