Lyrics
Hey hey hey!
Hey hey hey!

It was a bad idea to give me this kind of time
When they said, "You're gonna be in solitary confinement"
And while the other inmates are outside lifting barbells
I'm in an eight by ten prison cell

But in the night of the sun (Hey hey hey!)
The night of the sun (Hey hey hey!)
The night of the sun (Hey hey hey!)
The night of the sun

New state officials are outside running around
And they're telling the public that I need to be put down
And Washington's saying emphatically
That I wasn't doing things democratically

But in the night of the sun (Hey hey hey!)
The night of the sun (Hey hey hey!)
The night of the sun (Hey hey hey!)
The night of the sun
The sun

It was a bad idea (It was a bad idea!)
To give me this kind of time (To give me this kind of time!)
It was a bad idea.
