"Cruel Sun" as written by Michael Glabicki, Jim Donovan, Jenn Wertz, Liz Berlin, Jim Dispirito, John Buynak and Patrick Norman....
See the bloody faces lifted to the sky
Do you want to run to a future left behind?
I remember asking why, there lies aggression.
Separation where there should be love
Power plays while the people die

[Chorus]
Let it rain and protect us from this cruel sun
Let it rain and protect us from this cruel sun

I remember asking why, there lies aggression
Separation where there should be love
Power plays while the people die
I remember asking why, I remember asking why
I remember asking why, I remember asking why, why.

Open up your eyes, your eyes and let the child learn.
Open up your eyes, and let the child learn

[Chorus]

Why does war kill only the small man?
Why does war kill only the small man?
I think we know, yes, we know
I think we know, know, know

I remember asking why.
I remember asking why.
I remember asking why.

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentFirst of all, I have to say listening to "When I Woke" is a for album kind of listen. You have to sit down a enjoy the entire album to really know what Michael Glabicki is trying to get out. Here goes nothing. This album is too all the people who went through some issue in their life and never came out the same. Maybe even as early as childhood. "Why does war kill only the small man?". This line is the perfect example of this rebellion onto the issue and then the final end result. Cruel sun could possibly even be intended as "cruel son". "Let it Rain" is the way the friends of this troubled individual treat him. They have to separate themselves from him somehow because they aren't like him and he knows that. deep song if you ask me.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. I'm affected by it everytime I listen to it. I think the cruel sun is the opression and misfortune endured by those vulnerable, the rain is freedom
