lyrics

Light travels fast but space is far
You’ll not reach Mars in that old car
Thankfully sunlight comes to us
It takes 8 minutes, hey what’s the --
rushing there but when it goes
There’ll be 8 minutes no one knows
It’s always there but when it goes
There’ll be 8 minutes no one --

No, seasons don’t matter
When the sun gets fatter
And swallows its system
And all who dwell within

So tell that girl how much you love her
When moment’s gone might be no other
Next 8 minutes may be your past
Don’t worry now about the --
Last thing that you would do first
If you found out the sun just burst
Think only of what you’d do first
If you found out the sun just --

8 minutes 'til darkness
Use wisely, savor it
It can feel pretty long
For instance, this dumb song

There may be no such end in sight
But summer’s end is always right
Around the corner you can’t fight
When sun goes boom it’s death by --
Dumb shit happens every day
Good stuff too but either way
Exploding sun won’t feel okay
Everything will be erased

Seasons don’t matter
When the sun gets fatter
And swallows its system
And all who dwell within

When stuff gets bad don’t sink too low
For what it’s worth you never know
The sun might have exploded 8 minutes ago...
