  • The battle's been lost, the war is not won
    An addled republic, a bitter refund
    The business first flat earthers licking their wounds
    The verdict is dire, the country's in ruins

    [Chorus]
    Providence blinked, facing the sun
    Where are we left to carry on
    Until the day is done
    Until the day is done

    As we've written our stories to entertain
    These notions of glory and bull market gain
    The tele-prompt flutters, the power surge brings
    An easy speed message falls into routine

    [Chorus]

    A voice whispers "Son,
    The blessed vision comes."
    What have I done
    What have I done

    So hold tight your babies and your guns
    Forgive us our trespasses, father and son

    [Chorus]

    Until the day is done
    Until the day is done
    Until the day is done
    Until the day is done Writer/s: MICHAEL STIPE, MIKE MILLS, PETER BUCK
