"Indian Summer" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
If God persists, persists in saying yes
I guess we'll have, we'll have to test ourselves
Maybe the Summer, will come and clear our minds
And find the impulse, to love the sunshine

I guess we'll have to test
Until there's nothing left
We said the truth was fixed
It's lost without a trace

This crime is eternity
When time lost its certainty
The Indian Summer

Maybe this time
We'll kiss and we'll not shake hands
Indian Summer, still hurt and broken
And leave all this material belief
Remember the reasons
The reasons that made us be

I guess we'll have to test
What's darker than ourselves
We said the truth was fixed
It's lost without a trace

This crime is eternity
When time lost its certainty

The Indian Summer (x4)

I guess we'll have to test
until there's nothing left
We said the truth was fixed
It's lost without a trace

This crime is eternity
When time lost its certainty
The Indian Summer

The Indian Summer [x3]

    General CommentThis song is summing up Generation Terrorists, and shows their attitude at the start of their carrer. They wanted to sing about taking down the beliefs given to us by TV, and how they've become materialised and become what they hated 'we said the truth was fixed, its lost without a trace' and they cannot be sure where to go 'time lost its certainty', so they made this album to have fun, see what happens, just chill out. They want to get back to GT, they want to 'clear our minds' and 'remember the reasons that made them be', their darker political message

    General Comment I think the song is fairly obvious. It is about how God shouldn't be given as an answer to difficult questions, shown when "If god persists, persists in saying yes, I guess we have, we'll have to test ourselves". This means if God is just going to be given as an answer, we have to test ourselves and not accept the traditional answer. "I guess we'll have to test, until there's nothing left" this means we should test everything, and not just accept God as an unproven idea. "The truth is fixed" means that there has never been an experiment or investigation into these issues, just a simple "Fixed" truth.
