about

This song is dedicated to the memory of Bob Reuter.

lyrics

this death is lonely
this summer's been cold
and the heat gets to me
summer nights have gone to hell
summer nights have left me moldy water
summer nights have gone to shit

this moon is a window
into my dreams
and tonight it burns like a hangnail
summer nights have gone to hell
summer nights have left me tossing and turning
summer nights have gone to shit

maggots eat away, maggots eat away
at what's left of my brother
maggots eat away, maggots eat away
at what's left of my love
maggots eat away, maggots eat away
all hope is churning fodder

there's a hooded figure around the corner
staring me down
cicadas singing a funeral song, got a bomb full of ashes on my kitchen table
take me to the park so i can look down the barrel of a gun

milk tastes like vinegar
wine is stale
everything is gathering flies
summer nights have gone to hell
summer nights have left me festering
summer nights have gone to shit

maggots eat away, maggots eat away
this garden needs water
maggots eat away, maggots eat away
these weeds have grown tall
maggots eat away, maggots eat away
all hope is churning fodder
