Riff: The Flaming Lips – “Look…The Sun Is Rising”

Mar 6, 2013

Love is always something/Something you should fear

from Look...The Sun Is Rising lyrics by The Flaming Lips

Following the happy-clappy post-apocalyptic jingle of “Sun Blows Up Today,” the industrial-tinged opener from The Terror is an equally subversive yet far more intense focus on the centre of the solar system, albeit one where Coyne tries to decipher a message from a spaceship hiding in the clouds .
