DEAD SUN RISING LYRICS

Dead Sun Rising

Gary Numan's Dead Son Rising grew out of a set of demos the singer had left from previous projects, but as he explains: ‘The original ideas that sparked off these songs are now barely visible. It’s grown into another animal, something more experimental.’ 

Produced and co-written by Ade Fenton ( Numan’s collaborator on 2006’s Jagged), the material ranges from the heavily anthemic ‘The Fall’ (written about ‘an old friendship gone bad’) to the Arabic and ghostly ‘We Are The Lost’ and one of the standout moments, the brooding ‘Dead Sun Rising’. The latter both contain elements from a sci-fi fantasy story Numan has been writing over the last few years. Meanwhile, troubled relationships are explored on ‘For The Rest Of My Life’ and Not The Love We Dream Of’, and there’s also room for two instrumentals (‘Resurrection’ and ‘Into Battle’), showcasing some of the ‘soundtrack-type’ material that Numan and Fenton have been working on recently. It all adds up to one of Numan’s most atmospheric albums – one for those who loved his B-side experiments in the past but also containing some very direct, streamlined electronic rock in the likes of ‘Big Noise Transmission’, ‘The Fall’ and ‘When The Sky Bleeds, He Will Come’.

Big Noise Transmission

Have I ever tell you what happened before? 
I was walking in the shadow of my death 
Have I ever tell you what happened before? 
I was hiding from the big lie 
Have I ever tell you what happened before? 
I was followed by the vision of my god 
Have I ever tell you what happened before? 
I was hiding in a dead soul 

Come on little fucker can you let me out 
Come on little fucker can you let me out 
Come on little fucker can you let me out 
Come on little fucker can you let me out 

Captured underground, big noise transmission 
Captured underground, my big noise transmission 

Did I ever tell this has happened before? 
You've been walking in the shadow of my death 
Did I ever tell this has happened before? 
You've been hiding from the big lie 
Did I ever tell this has happened before? 
You've been following the visions of my god 
Did I ever tell this has happened before? 
You've been living in my dead soul 

Come on little fucker can you let me out 
Come on little fucker can you let me out 
Come on little fucker can you let me out 
Come on little fucker can you let me out 

Captured underground, big noise transmission 
Captured underground, my big noise transmission 

Captured underground, big noise transmission 
Captured underground, my big noise transmission 

Captured underground, big noise transmission 
Captured underground, my big noise transmission 

Captured underground, big noise transmission 
Captured underground, my big noise transmission 

Captured underground, gig noise transmission 
Captured underground, my big noise transmission


Dead Sun Rising

We come, we go
So old we can remember the dark
no songs, no words
just whispers that wait for you to sleep
and when you dream we'll come for you 
and breathe in your pain
we've seen such things
hide them from you 
and so keep you pure
I've seen gods bleeding
I've seen worlds burn
I've seen stars falling
and I've seen the dead sun rising

We live for you
we keep you safe
we keep you unknown
we die for you
like rain we fall until you are born

we are the lost
without you we are all that was wrong
we are the lost
without you we are a sigh in the wind

I've watched gods bleeding
I've watched worlds burn
I've watched stars falling
And I've watched the dead sun rising 
And I've watched the dead sun rising 
And I've watched the dead sun rising 
And I've watched the dead sun rising 
And I've watched the dead sun rising 
And I've watched the dead sun rising 
And I've watched the dead sun rising 
And I've watched the dead sun rising 


When The Sky Bleeds, He Will Come 

I thought I heard someone crying, thought I heard someone crying 
And I thought it was me 
I thought I heard someone screaming, thought I heard someone screaming 

I bleed for you. I bleed for... I bleed for... 
I, I, I need something to live for 
Is this the end we're deserving? 
I, I, I need something to live for 
I'm on my knees and I'm begging 

Something's fallen from heaven – looks like a nightmare coming to haunt me 
I don't believe it 
Fallen from heaven - looks like a nightmare coming to save me 
I don't believe it 

I thought I saw the sky bleeding, thought I saw the sky bleeding 
And I thought I saw you 
I thought I saw oceans burning, thought I saw oceans burning 
And I thought I saw you 

I thought I saw angels falling 
Beautiful, but still falling down 
I bleed for you 
I bleed for... 
I bleed for... 

I, I, I gave you something to die for 
And this is how you betray me? 
I, I, I gave you something to die for 
And this is how you repay me? 

Something's falling from heaven - looks like a nightmare coming to haunt me 
I don't believe it 
Falling from heaven - looks like a nightmare coming to take me 
I don't believe it


For The Rest Of My Life 

Look around. Do you see? 
Everything is fading 
Everything just fades away 
Look around. Do you see? 
Everyone looks lonely 
But there's only you and me 

Do you wonder how we came to be here? 
Do you wonder if we could find us from here? 
Look inside. Do you feel anything but bitter? 
Anything but sad and lost? 

Look inside. Do you dream of a time that's better? 
But do you ever dream of me? 
And my heart breaks when you cry in your sleep. 
So I can't stay here hoping I'm something you'll keep. 

I will love you. Miss you. All of my life. 
I will wonder. about you. All of my life.
I will need you. Warn you. All of my life. 
But I've lost you. Lost you. For the rest of my life.


Not The Love We Dream Of

Sometimes things don’t work out the way you plan
Sometimes words don’t say the thing you mean
Sometimes you can’t explain the way you feel
Sometimes when we smile we tell the same lie 

With a whisper everything you know is torn away you life just stop
With a whisper everything you are just falls apart and dies
And all those things that you meant to change are thoughts lost on the way to this
And all those stories you never said are word lost on the wind
Could you ever wonder about me and 
Did you ever wish that I was still there? 
Did you ever call my name by mistake? 
Did you ever cry yourself to sleep? 

Slowly slowly we lose the love that binds us
Slowly slowly we lose the care that hold us
Slowly slowly we lose time that shares us
Slowly slowly we lose the heart to save us

Sometimes things are not the way they seem 
Sometimes friends are not the friends thy seem
Sometimes time is not the cure it seems
Sometimes love is not the love we dream of


The Fall 

Put your hate in a box 
See how it bleeds for you 
I've watched you take your life and tear it apart. 
Put your pain in a box 
I'll send it back to you 
What have you become? A shadow of a man. 

Do you fall like rain on the crying? 
Cold and alone like the bitter and dying 
Do you fall like dust on a ruin? 
Empty and dead like the life you are loosing 

Put your lies in a box 
How have they worked for you? 
Did they win you back the things that you lost? 
Put your shame in a box 
How could you be so wrong? 
You sit there broken and the world moves on 

Do you fall like rain on the crying? 
Cold and alone like the bitter and dying 
Do you fall like dust on a ruin? 
Empty and dead like the life you are loosing 

How does it feel? I'll spare a little thought for "The Crow" 
How does it feel? Living in the black of your soul 
How does it feel? Like a beggar out in the cold 
How does it feel? With nothing but the truth left untold

Do you fall like tears on an ocean? 
Drowning in rage like a poisoned emotion 
Do you fall like a fading desire? 
Lost and unloved – a forgotten "messiah" 

Do you fall like rain on the crying? 
Cold and alone like the bitter and dying 
Do you fall like dust on a ruin? 
Empty and dead like the life you are loosing


We Are The Lost

We are lost in the dark
We are lost and afraid
cold and blind
we call for you
vows that bind us here with you

we are lost to feeling
we are lost to all
we were we are the soull forsaken
we are the bound and taken


For The Rest Of My Life (Reprise) 

I will love you. Miss you. All of my life. 
I will wonder. about you. All of my life.
I will need you. Warn you. All of my life. 
But I've lost you. Lost you. For the rest of my life.


Into Battle
