Now it's here, and it's warm and bright,
I can't sleep, I worry through the night.
When I see you up, the curtains hide,
In the morning I'll detest the sky.

Makes me feel like I just been born,
But I'm braced for feeling old and worn.
I can feel where it used to drill my head;
That the drilling will return I dread.

I'm so sick of the sunshine, baby,
'Cause it burns my skin.
I'm so sick of the sunshine,
Tell me when the storm comes in.

Curse the days when I'm smilin' sis,
'Cause I get to know what I'll soon miss.
In the rain I knew where I stood,
'Cause a wet man knows he's owed some good.

I'm so sick of the sunshine, baby,
'Cause it burns my skin.
I'm so sick of the sunshine,
Tell me when the storm comes in.

Everyone feels like family,
Pretty soon they'll just be folks I see.
Don't know why, when the sun's on tour,
It'll make bad weather hurt much more.

I'm so sick of the sunshine, baby,
'Cause it burns my skin.
I'm so sick of the sunshine,
Tell me when the storm comes in.

Better off just staying stuck
Where things are always looking up.
Hate to see what life could be
Unless it stays permanently.

Steeper hills will seem much worse
If you've been walking downhill first.
When the sun illuminates,
You'll find me in the darkest place.

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
