“The Sun” – Metropolis
Music: Joe Brooks Lyrics: Joe Brooks & Dusty Hughes
In this science fiction epic based on the silent film, the world is in a constant state of darkness, and the only energy available comes from slave labor below the bustling Metropolis which houses the social elite. Stricken with grief after his girlfriend dies from the horrible working conditions, George sings this tortured lament about the lack of light in his life and plans to escape to the city above. As winter creeps in, the sun will rise later and set earlier, so appreciate the daylight today while it lasts.
