It's always summer in this southern state
where I'm behind the moon, floating in space.
But I'm not in hiding just trying not to be found
so when I hear my name, I never turn around.


Here in the valley they live in their cars
as they dream of fields under oceans of stars.
And I'm disappearing into that grid
where I'll live out in the open, perfectly hidden.


It's always summer in this southern state,
and it's a comfortable life in a beautiful place.
But something's rattling somewhere inside,
and it sounds like it's broken, but in a place I can't find.
And it only gets louder with time.

    Song MeaningI saw Ben Gibbard at Henry Miller Library and he said this song was based off of Stan Jones' song, Cowpoke. Sounds pretty similar, especially the "ooo"s
