I fight tsunamis with an umbrella
I deal the left hook like a Mother Theresa
I’m facing down death like a fly on the windscreen
you bring the warheads
I’m bringing ice cream
And I’ve got something more
and I believe.

I’ve seen the Sun come down
I’ve felt its fire burn
And in the dark of night
I hold to its return
I know it’s growing cold
And there’s a lot to learn
I’ve seen the Sun come down
I hold to its return

I’m screaming down into the black abyss
I was born for such a time as this
So hit me with your bad news
bells are ringing
tell me that I’m doomed and I’ll keep singing
The fight won’t end with me
And I believe.

Night falls and the waters rise
Leaders lead with the fear and lies
Savior says don’t be surprised
Everything’s gonna be alright.

    My InterpretationThis song seems to be about perseverance in faith, despite feeling like you're unequipped (the first verse) or facing some kind of "attack" (the second verse). By the bridge everything seems hopeless, when God speaks, saying that nothing is unexpected, and that everything will be alright in the end. The chorus seems to be using the setting and rising of the sun as an allegory to its homophone, "son", referencing the death, resurrection, and eventual return of Christ.
