"Jet Black Sunrise" as written by and William Leen....
Time passes like a dream
She suspends the worst of things
Tomorrow let?s see
To hell with her
It's not hers to forestall
I've worked out paralysis
Undermining it all

Collapsing light
The night moves close to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
And take the whole world down alone

Life -- it's always just out of reach
Was it there at my parents' house
Maybe just down that street
But your mind
However lacking it feels
Still I'd trade you away today
For some feeling that's real

Collapsing night
The light breaks close to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
Life is in your hands
Yes, I understand
It?s yours to take on alone
If you're gonna leave on your own
Jet black is the payback
This fine sunrise

When you're bored
So sick of your song
When whole worlds just disappear
Swallowed up and gone

When you're down
Down how far can you go
Raise the future in a wasted past
Everything unknown

Happiness
Means nothing to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
Life is in your hands
Yes, I understand
It's up to you all alone
I wish you wouldn't leave on your own
Jet black is the payback
Jet black is the payback
This fine sunrise

    General CommentI agree that this is the best song off the major lodge album. Too me its as if he's remembering that age where you wanted to set out on your own, maybe even though you were too young, and all the rebelliousness and angst we had when we were young. How we were going to "take the whole world down alone" and how we were invincible, and now being that he is older and realizes the truth and the downfalls of that mindset and the outcome of his actions, he finds himself in the opposite position, maybe telling his child or someone else that the road they walk "you're gonna walk it alone" as he did. Jet Black may be a sign of his ignorance, and Sunrise may be a sign of his enlightenment.

    Could be wrong, Great song none the less

    General CommentAgree it's the best song on the album. I think it's about being stuck in a bad relationship. I might have a tainted view because I've been there . . . twice. Some of the lines just hit real close to home: "To hell with her", "Happiness means nothing to me", "Still I'd trade you away today For some feeling that's real". For me "Jet Black" refers to being stuck and "Sunrise" refers to doing something to get out of a bad situation. That what I think anyway.
