"Sun's Coming Up" as written by and Kevin Parker....
All those things I ever thought
Would never end
To think they're now all memories
Sends me round the bend

To watch her airplane swaying
Coming in to land
There my world is hanging
In someone else's hands

And if I have done something
And you have to let me go
Think of me as someone
Someone that you know

But if I don't hear something
Pretty soon from now
I'll disconnect completely
See how that works out

I wasn't daring
Not much a chancer
Oh my darling
Why won't you answer?

Seven a.m.
Midnight in Dover
Sun's coming up now
I guess it's over

Playing his guitar
While he's dying of cancer
Oh my father
Why won't you answer?

Seven a.m.
Midnight in Dover
Sun's coming up now
I guess it's over

    My InterpretationSo the great trip that is this album comes to a close. I don't think the narrator was ever really able to fall asleep. He is, after all, lonely and his dreams are riddled with thoughts of pain and loss.

    As the sun rises, a new day begins but he just might disconnect if no one responds. Lonely and having been alone the whole night he calls a girl, his father, anyone who might pick up just so he can evade the misery of solitude.

    He won't.
