    Sunflower in the morning
    Standing in the garden
    All before you wake

    No power can compel you
    Out into the daylight
    Let that evil wait

    Strange thought upon the pillow:
    “What day demands a date?”
    Well I don’t know

    Sunflower in the evening
    Standing in the garden
    Taking up that space

    No power can compel me
    Back into the daylight
    Let that evil wait

    Strange thought upon the pillow:
    “What day demands a date?”
    Well I don’t know

Respecting your eye and knowledge✊. It's "More than meets the eye" speaking of visually and audibly astounding, culturally preserving and pretty revolutionary speaking of Vampire Weekend and Mr Lacy.
