I see the sun
I see the sun
I see the sun
I see the sun

She dawns, she burns
She grows, she feeds
She spews, she dies above us
and builds the shadows
which faces myself
She drives me into the black hole
The door opens there
The skin opens there

    General CommentTo me the lyrics seem to be reflection of self. I see the sun as a sort of interrogation light. It illuminates and intensifies your own shadows until you're sucked into the black hole of oneself where you're forced to face the nightmares.

    Where Anja references "skin" throughout her lyrics makes me think of it in terms of a protective layer over the soul. So when "the skin opens there" her soul is laid bare.

    General CommentReally impressive. All of her songs are so full of atmosphere.
    This song's called "the sun", which is normally such a positive thing, and turns out the negative sense of it, which "builds shadows"...
    But the last three lines are sort of mysterious for me.
    Well, maybe I just got it all wrong.
