"Hot as Day" as written by and Jennifer Lynn Wasner....
When the sun is its most bright
Stare into its light
Do not close your eyes

Let it burn into your mind
Then look left, look right
Let it make you blind

Oh, isn't that a fright
Birth, to eternal night
That someone decides each day

When the days run long and late
Darkness brings me pause
While I lie awake

Sleeping's never long enough
Lying in this heat
I forget to breathe

Oh, isn't that the way
Sun hides himself away
Still, it's hot as day

    Lyric Correctionit's not "birth, to eternal night" but rather "GO INTO eternal night"

    General Commenti'm not sure of anything, but here's a slightly different interpretation...


    when the sun is its most bright
    stare into its light
    do not close your eyes

    let it burn into your mind
    then look left look right
    let it make you blind

    oh isn't that a fright
    go into eternal night
    --- someone did fly/defy --- (?)

    when the days run long and late
    darkness brings me pause
    while i lie awake

    sleep is never long enough
    lying in this heat
    i forgot to breathe

    oh isn't that the wait
    slow hides himself away
    still it's hot as day

    General Commenti have to take it back, because after hearing it live... my opinion differs. also, i'm starting to think jenn's changing the lyrics up, and it's fucking with my head :)

    i heard the ending the same as posted:
    oh isn't that the way
    sun hides himself away
    still it's hot as day

    it also seemed she didn't say "go into eternal night"... but something like "birth..."

    i still can't hear "that someone decides each day"... but more than anything it's the "each day" i can't hear.

    my brain needs a rest.

    Lyric Correctionaccording to Wye Oak:

    when the sun is its most bright, stare into its light, do not close your eyes. let it burn into your mind, then look left, look right. let it make you blind. oh, isn't that a fright, burned into eternal night, that someone decides is right. when the days run long and late, darkness gives me pause while i lie awake. sleep is never long enough, lying in this heat, i forget to breathe. oh, isn't that the way, sun hides itself away, still it's hot as day.
