"Black Sun" as written by Michael Schleibaum, Paul Wayne Burnette, Michael Carrigan Theobald, John Henry and Ryan Littlefield Parrish....
A black sun has risen look up to the sky
enter your rain season drown out the light
a return to the soil
harvest by hand
depleted and bleak in an unfertile land

Is it fate or is it fortune
that blasts our past to oblivion
can you feel the weight has shifted
Drought decay have all been scripted

As I lay beneath
it's piercing rays unlearning and burning
drown all light in the shade of the night

A black hole has engulfed us
pulled apart at the seams
we drift through the void
we struggle to see

Trapped in an infinite reversal of life
shelter yourself in the shade of the night
is it fate or is it fortune
that blasts our past to oblivion
can you feel the weight has shifted
drought decay have all been scripted
as I lay beneath
its piercing rays unlearning and burning

Swooning doom and rebirth
a vision obscured
ecliptical and shadowless

Black clouds are looming off in the distance
another great victory for the resistance
awake to greet the new dawn through the mist
the day it all changed and the black sun eclipsed

Drown all light in the shade of the night
and laying beneath it's rays
all that we have created will be erased

    General CommentThese lyrics are the definition of pure badass. It seens to be about mankinds destruction but considering John Henry said he wrote personal lyrics about the band and its journey this time I think he's saying that their music wont be eternal, and that sooner or later Darkest Hour must come to an end and their music be forgotten

    Black clouds are looming off in the distance

    awake to greet the new dawn through the mist
    the day it all changed and the black sun eclipsed
    "

    But that they still fight on and will continue making music for as long as they can

    The Black Sun is just a fucking badass metaphor

    "
    Is it fate or is it fortune
    that blasts our past to oblivion
    can you feel the weight has shifted
    Drought decay have all been scripted

    As I lay beneath
    it's piercing rays unlearning and burning
    drown all light in the shade of the night
