"Blood Red Summer" as written by and Joshua Eppard Travis Stever....
Faint white figures paint my sleep
Please don't tell my secrets, keep them hidden
You got it
If the words that matter reach your face from floor
Will you be wondering if, or
Do I need what is given or honest?
Does is cost me scarring if the words stay true?
Even number for your nephew
I don't want it anymore

And when the answer that you want
Is in the question that you state
Come what may

In a pain that buckles out your knees
Could you stop this if I plead?
You got it
So destined I am to walk among the dark
A child in keeping secrets from
Will they know what I've done in the after?
In the sought for matter when the words blame you
In a blood red summer I'll give you
I don't want it

What did I do to deserve this?

    General CommentWhat I love about this song:
    1. It has a meaning in the stories (which I will figure out for sure when I get my hands on those comic books).
    2. It has an awesome, happy, dance-like mood that's good for just blasting and dancing to.
    3. The zombie video is AWESOMe. I think it's so funny when bands make videos that make no sense with the meaning of he songs. It reminds me that these musical geniuses are humans too, and they got bored and decided to dress up as zombies. LOVE it!!!

    General CommentSo the deal on co and ca, is that their albums all contribute to a kind of sci-fi trillogy. This is on the thrid album in the series, (the first hasnt been released, for those of you who were about to argue) But the main question is what the story is actually about and i myself have theories but no real answers, so here are my theories on this song. (everything that follows may be false) the second album is mainly the story of claudio, second son of coheed and cambria. He has some secret, which i think somehow relates to the monster that his father had in him, that eventually killed him. He is in love with ikkin newo, and tells her his secret, because he has waited his whole live to share it with someone, he doesnt want to walk alone in the dark. Ths gets complicated in the next three songs in the velorium camper when she is captured by some other evil pilot, Al. He is in love with her, and i believe she tells him... but after that i get confused. Feel free to add or correct.

    General CommentAlso just to add one thing... the even number your nephew relates to jessie, his prize fighting uncle, (who has more of a part in the previous album.... i think) and claudio is his even numbered nephew.

    General Commentin this song Claudio is talking to Jesse, his uncle, Coheeds brother. all the "you got it" parts are Jesse replying to Claudio. Basically now Ambellina has told Claudio everything that happened and what he has to do and he talks to Jesse for guidance. Claudio is absolutely torn up inside and doesnt want any part of this. After this talk he decides to go find Newo Ikkin. and eternity is right about the "even number your nephew" line: Claudio is Coheed/Cambria's 2nd son of 4 and Jesse is Coheed's brother - he is actually Jesse's first nephew technically because Josephine is the oldest and that would make Mathew, the youngest child, the second nephew.. but whatever it is definitely Claudio.

    General CommentNothing really to comment on the story. The thing is s0f.....the line "pain that buckles out your knees" means he is already dead.

    General Commenteternityawait: it's a quadrilogy, not a trilogy, with the first being released next, then the last after that.
