When summer ends in death,
On a dirtbike chasin' Beth
All us kids with tennis balls
And a whiffle bat
And dad's Playboy centerfolds
And at nine or so we'd go
Sit in fields with fireflies
And smoke the cigarettes we stole

Oh yeah,
And the sunlight crawls around you
Oh yeah,
And draws a fable that we fell through
Pomegranate rain on my tongue
Under the Blood Orange Sun...
Under the Blood Orange Sun...

Ma got me out of bed
Saw the highway splashed in red
The school announcements said your name
I ran away instead
And wept on that hill we used to go,
Watch the Susquehanna flow
Later Tommy gave me details
That I didn't want to know

Oh yeah,
And the sunlight crawls around you
Oh yeah,
And draws a fable that we fell through
Some days are a dream on my tongue
Under the Blood Orange Sun...
Under the Blood Orange Sun...

Sun...
Blood Orange Sun...
Sun...

Got off at a change
When the summer ends in tears
The smell of the apples in the air
We moved out to Southern Cal, my summer belle
I left you there.

Where you fade, while the Sui's torched a car
And us young punks bum rushed the bar
We laughed 'til we fell around
A row of palm trees blazed against the dark

Oh yeah,
And the sunlight crawls around you
Oh yeah,
And draws a fable that we fell through
Pomegranate rain on my tongue
Under the Blood Orange Sun...
Under the Blood Orange Sun...

Blood Orange Sun...
Blood Orange Sun...

    General CommentIt's obviously about losing a friend to death (the second verse makes that explicitly clear).

    This is one of the sadder songs the band has done, despite it's summery ska-y vibe. Rather touching and emotional, actually.
