Daylight Savings Trigger

The sky promises to turn black
and you have to let it breathe
The sun is a controlling beast
but you will be okay
Because you'll be ready this time

Darkness doesn't mean the day is over
The presence of night promises the light of tomorrow
And tomorrow brings sparkling lakes and swaying palm trees
Night reminds us to hold on
because the reward of survival is a new day
to start clean
to see again
to try harder

Your sleepy eyes will be awakened by streams of gold
seeping in through streaked windows
So tell the twilight that you're staying
because it can only cloak you for so long
and daylight is waiting
