I realize its technically called "Daylight Saving Time," but that's fine.
-Jordan

lyrics

We fought daylight savings in my home town.
We didn't want to speed our clocks up,
And didn't want to slow them down.

Because our farmers still wake in the same way to tend to their crops
In the morning when the rooster crows,
Be it five or six o'clock.

Our old men still tee off at the first faint signs of light,
Driving white plastic down the fairway,
And somewhere down the road his grandkids have been standing
Since long before the sun came up.

But the sun, beautiful sun,
It shines on us now
Where it wasn't shining once.

Every crack I used to know has been paved and filled back in
Where I used to ride my back on the street where I once lived
And they keep building and building,
Though the money's dried up.
There is still hope in Indiana
And still many men to trust.

But the sun, beautiful sun,
It shines on us now
Where it wasn't shining once.

So send the buses out with their flashing lights
To the neighborhoods dark before sunrise
Where the children laugh and play out in the streets.

So we hold our pens with the tightest grip
They wonder who changed what?
We will say, "We did!"
And when four years end we will hold our heads up high.
