    It all began while I was watching an episode of Firefly called “Jaynestown”. In it, one of our antiheroes is drinking in a pub worried he’s gonna be arrested for past crimes he committed in Canton when a musician starts singing a song about him. The song is called the “Hero of Canton“.

    It turns out, “Hero of Canton” even inspired me to ask the question, “What other songs might’ve been heard in that pub in Canton?”

    I began a mission to write some of those songs. But I didn't do it alone. I wrote them with my friends James "Cedric" Hazlerig, Rie Sheridan Rose, and various Browncoats.

about

A protest song against corporate exploitation of... Blue Sun... yeah. I'm talking totally about a fictional corporation.

lyrics

Blue Sun
by Marc Gunn
Date written, unknown, refound June 28, 2014.

They terraformed the lands of many fine worlds
Then bloodied our hands with our boys and our girls
They offered us cans of food that curdled
And piled on chains by the ton.

Blue Sun. Blue Sun.
Another corporation
With their hand on the gun
Blue Sun. Blue Sun.
Free yourself to run
From Blue Sun

You see their emblem emblazoned on crates
On walls, on wombs, even on your dates
You may fall victim to their seductive gaze
So raise up your hands to shun

Their manacles we'll cast off our tired wrists.
Their suits we'll pummel with our bloodied fists
Cut through the red tape and expunge the vile cyst
That cripples our will to run

So raise up your voice and shout to the firm
Let those who control know what it feels like to squirm
Their products we won't buy, but oh they shall burn
For this is their will undone




Key F

verse:
[C]They terraformed the lands of many fine worlds
Then [Am]bloodied our hands with our [Bb]boys and our [C]girls
They [F]offered us cans of [C]food that curdled
And [Bb]piled on chains by the [C]ton.

chorus:
Blue [F]Sun. Blue [C]Sun.
Another [Bb]corporation
Intent on no [C]fun
Blue [F]Sun. Blue [C]Sun.
[Bb]Free yourself to [C]run
From Blue [F]Sun
