"Wings of Summer" as written by and Serj Tankian....
Well, I, I, want to fly, fly,
On the wings, wings of summer,
But you, you put your eyes,
You put your eyes on mine.

Go, perfect your fall
And no matter what
Smile for them all
For today, we see never
Tomorrow's menu reads forever

I, I want to fly
On the wings, of summer
But you, put your eyes, on mine,
I, I want to fly
On the wings, of summer
But you, put your eyes, on mine

Don't confess to the crime
Till you lavish in your concubine
When you think you got clever
They'll well you in and pull the lever

Now I, I want to fly,
On the wings of summer
But you put your eyes on mine,
Now, I, I'm going to fry,
Cause I ran over the guy with a Hummer,
But you, put your eyes, eyes on the divide
Now I, I, want to fly, fly on the wings of summer
But you, you put your eyes, you put your eyes on mine.

When you think that it's all over
They'll clip your wings and make you roll over
Go perfect your great fall
No matter what, smile for them all
For today we see never
Tomorrow's menu reads forever
For today, we see never,
Tomorrow's menu reads

    My InterpretationWhen listening to this song a beautiful image stuck in my head - the image of a man and a woman sitting naked under a tree on a beautiful summer day, in perfect harmony with nature. This image developed into the story of Adam and Eve. You all know their story: it's the story of the people who had everything they needed, but wanted more.

    You know the story of the serpent. He put his eyes on Eve as he tempted her. He promised her that she could fly on the wings of summer. Eve goes and perfects her fall as she puts her eyes on Adam. She smiles for him. He trusts her. They don't realise what they have today, because tomorrow's menu reads 'forever'.

    They want to fly on the wings of summer, but then God comes and lays his eyes on them. Adam doesn't confess to his crime and blames it on Eve, his concubine. Eve blames the serpent and thought she'd gotten clever when God wheeled them in and pulled the lever.

    They've now been cast out of Eden, when they realise that they had already been flying on the wings of summer. Now they have nothing but each other. They also have a hummer, apparently. That is the story of their son, Cain. He murdered his brother Abel for putting his eyes on the divine.

    And that's the story: The story of the arguably loving God who clipped of their wings and banished them forever. The story of the great fall of mankind. The story of the beginning of forever.

    My InterpretationMy interpenetration if this song is of a man who is about to be executed via the electric chair, this is made evident to me through the lines "They'll wheel you in and pull the lever" and "Now, I, I'm going to fry". The man want's to forget about what is about to happen and have a last moment of happiness before he dies, and this happiness he has called the "Wings of Summer". He want's to achieve this happiness, but he opens his eyes before he dies and looks into the eyes of the woman he loves, and she is sad, and this makes him remember that he is about to die, and he can not achieve his last moment of happiness. I think that the reason that he is being executed is that he made a small mistake and this mistake had dire consequences. "Cause I ran over the guy with a Hummer", this line led me to believe that he did something bad, such as "ran over the guy with the hummer", a very big car, and this mistake led to big consequences, because the guy with the hummer has a bigger car and can deal more damage to him, and maybe this is why he is in the electric chair. This is just my interpretation, thank you for reading.
