Third single from Horizons.
Note: This is included in the Horizons album pre-order (so don't buy it twice).

"You Set Fire to the Sun" is a call to redirect the negative energy that comes from the existential crises of our everyday lives and harness it as a motivation to live our fullest lives. Essentially, it’s about finding motivation in death – or at least in the realization that death is inevitable and often unexpected.

In “Set Fire,” this existential dilemma is (nearly literally) universalized into celestial terms: “We were broken from the start / stars exploding and pulled apart”. However, there is still hope, even if fleeting: “Don’t fade, be brave / How long until we notice / How long until the door closes.” With this looming inevitability, we need to redirect our fear(s) toward the goal of realizing our greatest, most resonant selves – while we still can.
