"Year Of Summer" as written by Gregory John Mackintosh and Nicholas John Holmes....
There's two arms you could break
How low can you descend?
Approach the subject kindly
You've chosen to defend
Those tears are not for real
They're falling on command
A harsh decision maybe
You're living on remand

Your mind is thinking madness
Much more you could not take
Before you fall on bad days
And lover-tour defense as always

Suddenly demanding, choose not
To feed on all this sadness

My stomach tends to fold
When I speak of your name
Accept that you're regretful
Accept that you're not safe

Your life is contradiction
A life that's bruised and torn
I've chosen toleration, you've chosen
To dismiss as always

Suddenly demanding, choosing not
To feed on all this sadness
Suddenly demanding, choosing not
To feed on all this sadness

Suddenly demanding, the truth is always
Worse when you are sober

This sadness is my own

    Song MeaningThe song is possibly about someone who has suffered years of pain in a relationship and decides they have had enough and can't take anymore, at least that's the way I read it. When I listen to it I tend to look at the meaning of the song in a more general sense, as having had enough of everything in life. I love the part "My stomach tends to fold, when I speak of your name", and "The truth is always worse when you are sober". Totally underrated song that I have loved since it was first released.

    General CommentI personally think the song is rather about a person being absolutely disillusione by life and everything. The song describes the person's way into cynism.
