It is interesting to hear the way Sunday is used metaphorically in this Morrissey song. There are those for whom Sunday is very different than for the practicing Christian - mere silence and loneliness, silent and grey, "a costal town that they forgot to close down."
There is a lot that could be said about the simple fact that this metaphor works for people -- a lot about the empty shell of Christendom that is the quasi-secular West, the true Christian calendar and "Christian time," even the Church's mission in the world.
