Sunrise, Sunset

Album: Fevers and Mirrors (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about how simple, yet complex life is, and all the lies and substitutions we must put up with. The lyrics, "To the sunrise and the sunset. The master and his servant have exactly the same fate. It's a sunrise and a sunset. From a cradle to a casket. There is no way to escape," are saying that no matter who we are or what we do, it will all end the same. We cannot escape death. >>
