And the heat came down
I knew I was living in a long, long dream
when you fed me the black ice cream

and the heat rose up
I heard the loud loud buzzing of our son's go-kart
and the ice cream was blacker than the devil's heart
It was august the 19th, 1957
I fixed my eyes on you, fixed my eyes on you

    General CommentThis song is one of the eeriest and most dreamlike and beautiful songs ever. I can picture this song perfectly but I don't know exactly what Darnielle wanted it to be interpreted as. Does anyone know?
