"Sun of Nothing" as written by Paul Andrew Waggoner, Robert Dustin Waring, Thomas Giles Rogers Jr., Cartland Blake Richardson and Daniel Lanford Briggs....
Everywhere I look they are there... what is everyone doing?
Going to a home?
To a place that makes us feel warm... a place that grants us a smile.
Seems like a very simple idea, but not hardly figured out.
(looking everywhere)

I just see faces.
Faces staring blank as they go on with the routine.
This routine.
Nothing new... its time to go through with this.
A spaceman. That?s what they say I am. Nothing but a spaceman... always pushing it all away.
Trying to get to that one place I call home.

The journey begins... forcing a new life with the unexplained... a creeping rush that surrounds me.
Floating.... floating away.
Always pushing it all away. Trying to get to that one place I call home.
My own planet... I allowed this wish... unexpected... not knowing why.
Wonder why I question it now? I'm my own planet... not many can experience this sensation.

Loneliness is creeping out... or in, however you think of it.
But it sure is surrounding me. Maybe all the complaining is an accurance of boredom.
I suppose it?s too late.
I am floating farther and farther away. I did love, I did laugh, I did live.
(Now I?m my own planet)

A spaceman. They say I am? a spaceman.
Planets everywhere... my own destiny? I?m floating towards the sun.
The sun of nothing. Floating towards the sun, the sun of nothing. I have become the sun of nothing.
Nothing is here. Memories are not clear.
Floating to the sun? farther away.
I can't believe that?s what it has come to... I never really had it all that bad.
I just looked around and never thought about the blank stares.
(Blank stairs)

They were looking into something much worse than what I thought I was.
Selfishness is a very sticky quality of this species. Looking around...
I don't see any faces... yes I am lonely. It?s to be expected. I?ll sleep now.
(Dream waves)

    General CommentHere is the interpretation from Tommy:

    "This song is about a man that gets tired of his life. He decides the only natural way to rid himself of this world is to fly to the sun and burn his body. He builds a rocket ship (he has already been named the “spaceman” in his town) and starts his journey. The song is the thought process during his voyage towards death. He evaluates all the different aspects of his life and towards the end realizes he had it better than most. He has regret but there’s no turning back cause he is already floating towards the sun."

    General CommentThis song is perfection.

    "Floating towards the sun, the sun of nothing.." is epic.

    "I can't believe that’s what it has come to... I never really had it all that bad." Awesome.

    Favorite on the album.

    General CommentEpic. Fucking. Song.


    After listening to it and reading it, it seems to be about someone who gives up completely on social interaction, and takes up a completely nihilistic point of view.

    General CommentBetween The Buried And Me list Pink Floyd as one of their influences... I believe this song is titled after Floyd's unreleased early version of their epic "Echoes", "The Return Of The Son Of Nothing".

    General CommentThis whole album is pretty much one song. If you saw them tour for this one, they played the whole cd pretty much without stopping. Then, at least when I saw them, they played Mordecai. It was an intense show. This kid got to sing with Tommy too. He actually gave the kid his mic. They are amazing live.
