Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly go the days

Sunrise, sunset
You wake up, then you undress
It always is the same

A sunrise and the sun sets
Youre lying while you confess
Keep trying to explain

A sunrise and the sun sets
You realize then you forget
What youve been trying to retain

But everybody knows its all about the things
That get stuck inside of your head
Like the songs your roommate sings
A vision of her body as she stretches out on your bed

And she raised her hands in the air asked you
When was the last time you looked in the mirror?
'Cause you have changed, yeah, you have changed

Sunrise, the sun sets
You are hopeful, then you regret
The circle never breaks

With a sunrise and a sunset
Theres a change of heart or address
Is there nothing that remains?

For a sunrise or a sunset
Youre manic or youre depressed
Will you ever feel okay?

For a sunrise or sunset
Your lover is an actress
Did you really think shed stay?

For a sunrise or sunset
Youre either coming or you just left
But youre always on the way

Towards a sunrise or a sunset
A scribble or a sonnet
They are really just the same

To the sunrise and the sunset
The master and his servant
Have exactly the same fate

Its a sunrise and a sunset
From a cradle to a casket
Theres no way to escape

The sunrise and the sunset
Hold your sadness like a puppet
Keep putting on the play

But everything you do is leading to the point
Where you just wont know what to do
And at that moment you may laugh but there is someone
There who will be laughing louder than you

So its true, the trick is complete
Become everything you said that you never would be
Youre a fool, youre a fool

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise and the sun sets

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, the sun sets
Sunrise, the sun sets

Sunrise, sunset
Go home to your apartment
Put the cassette in the tape deck and let that fever play

Sunrise, sunset
Where are you, Arienette?
Where are you, Arienette?
