"Mercury Summer" as written by and Omar Abidi Charles Robert Simpson....
I hope you make it through
I hope the sea is just as blue as our dream
We've got a long way to climb
Until we see what we've left behind

We wake to the sound of drums
And we are the soldiers of our own events
We are the keys to the kingdom
And we will never wear clothes again

You get up, move around
Every time you hear a sound
What do you expect to see
Every time you look at me?

I know this, is going to be alright...

Mercury summer
Mercury summer
In the afternoon
I hope you come back soon
Mercury summer
Mercury summer
You just take your time
I hope to see you

So how can you fall asleep
So close to the fire that is keeping us warm?
Sleeping out in the rough
Just let me know when you've had enough

You get up, move around
Every time you hear a sound
What do you expect to see
Every time you look at me?

I know this, is going to be alright...

Mercury summer
Mercury summer
In the afternoon
I hope you come back soon
Mercury summer
Mercury summer
You just take your time
I hope to see you

Mercury summer
Mercury summer
In the afternoon
I hope you come back soon
Mercury summer
Mercury summer
You just take your time
I hope to see you

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh oohh (x6)

Mercury summer
Mercury summer
In the afternoon
I hope you come back
Mercury summer
Mercury summer
You just take your time
I hope to see you

Mercury summer
Mercury summer
In the afternoon
I hope you come back soon
Mercury summer
Mercury summer
You just take your time
I hope to see you

    General CommentI'm absolutely loving this track. It has a very summer popiness about it.
    Be Human looks like it's going to completely blow me away.

    Not so sure on the meaning.

    General CommentOlp89, apparantly the album's a little more softer. There are definitely heavier tracks though. Damocles and Chemical Blood are supposed to be really heavy. I'm really looking forward to the new album.

    General CommentI read somewhere it was a love song.
    Man, I'm so excited for the new album, only 5 more days.
    I hope this album doesn't make them too mainstream, after all they get enough crap from people who refuse to listen to them or acknowledge how good they are simply because Charlie was in Busted.

    General CommentCalling All Stations, Colours Bleed To Red, Damocles and Chemical Blood are the most reminiscent of their older stuff and yes Damocles and Chemical Blood are heavy as fuck! Kind of like Deathcar and the rest are kind of poppy while still Fightstar, but to be honest I’ve only heard snippets of the songs that aren’t singles.

    General CommentOn closer inspection upon getting this album, it isn’t that poppy, sure its has same pop influences but I can’t see this putting them into the mainstream it has to many obscure and heavy moments to do so. Not sure if its as good as One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours, but I have only listened to once so I can’t really judge it.

    My InterpretationThis song really makes me think of my girlfriend, the lyrics sound to me like they're in a dubious relationship, but he is very confidant about it:

    I hope you make it through
    I hope the sea is just as blue as our dream
    We've got a long way to climb
    Until we see what we've left behind
    ...
    I know this, is going to be alright...

    And the chorus is all about him looking forward to the next time they get to be together.

    The second and third verses seem to be about their fights, how "[they] are the soldiers of our own events" and "So how can you fall asleep, So close to the fire that is keeping us warm?" seems to say that she sometimes strays to close to the hot topics that cause the fights and can ruin the core of their relationship.

    And that's about the gist of it, so far as I see right now.
    This is actually a very good song, I love it, even though I don't like Fightstar, it really surprised me!

    General CommentMy mate absolutely worships Fightstar, and she's like, had her photo taken with charlie simpson and knows every single word to every single song, and the new single that hasnt actually been released yet that she go off youtube and converted just so she could have it is now the most played song on her ipod. So yeah, she is pretty obssessed about fightstar. And she told me it was about shawshank redemption :)
    So I think that's what it's about (Y)
