I'm just one of nine
could mean the world
Pleasure yourself
'Cause the law says we have to stay

And we dance, too
Spin and do tricks
This all for you
'Cause we couldn't have it any other way

And I'm here
every year
Just to get a tan
A little color
in my life
My annual suicide

I flourished in your air
Grew with humanity
You gave them life
Under protection of my sealed wings

And now it seems
Like the breath of
one hundred cigarrettes
Is all you can give for me to breathe

And I'm here
every year
Just to get a tan
A little color
in my life
My annual suicide

And they say
"The Sun only burns
'cause it wants us to"
So why do you burn us all away?
Burn us all away?

    General Commenti think it is about how do we have to raise the factor of protection year-after-year, because the protection around our globe seems to get weaker, so we have to take care of ourselves as we get more addicted on sunburns, kinda...
