"Until the Night Turns" as written by and Ben Schneider....
I had a vision tonight that the world was ending
And the sky was falling and time was bending
I watched the heavens collide right before my eyes

What if the world dies with the sunrise?
Baby it's all right we'll be up all night
What if we're unmade when the stars fade?
Keep me going 'til the night turns into the day

I had a visitor come from the great beyond
Telling me our time in the world is done
And to watch for a sign in the midnight sky

What if the world dies with the sunrise?
Baby it's all right we'll be up all night
What if we're unmade when the stars fade?
Keep me going 'til the night turns into the day

What if the world dies with the sunrise?
Baby it's all right we'll be up all night
What if we're unmade when the stars fade?
Keep me going 'til the night turns into the day

We wait for the sunrise
We watch as the world dies
We howl in the moonlight
When the World Ender comes, baby don't close your eyes
We wait for the sunrise
We wait for the sunrise

I had a vision tonight that the world was ending
Yeah the sky was falling and time was bending
We spent our last night in the moonlight
Baby it's so bright we'll be up all night
I got a helluva view for the end of the world
I've got a bottle of booze and a beautiful girl
If I'm a'­goin to die I'm gonna go in style

What if the world dies with the sunrise?
Baby it's all right we'll be up all night
What if we're unmade when the stars fade?
Keep me going 'til the night turns into the day

What if the world dies with the sunrise?
Baby it's all right we'll be up all night
What if we're unmade when the stars fade?
Keep me going 'til the night turns into the day

    My OpinionI liked the song at first for its rare positivity towards doom, about savoring the short night left for the song's persona. Rather fun. However, re-listening to it I noticed the lyric that "time was bending." The rest of the song focuses of the linear night ending in the sunrise. But if "time was bending," whether it means the future or past happening with the present night, the idea of the linear night "turning into the day" kind of... breaks. Going out on a limb here, but one idea this gave me (assuming the time-contradiction was intentional at all?) is that this 'final night' is what the rest of one's lifetime feels like. If time is bending, from now until your death is the same as your last few hours until your death.
