"The Red Summer Sun" as written by and Stephan/cadogan Jenkins....
There's a big red sky over you and I
And it's coming and we're pumping over the ground
In desert air I hope you'll be there
Cause it's coming down
Pumping over ground
I've seen car wreck kids walk away from it
Laughed from within
I know these days will end
It's been a long time, a long time
To walk with the mighty
I won't be a martyr
So let me go, let me go
On my own I'll make do with none
I will blame no one
Slept on packing foam
I'll make it all my home
And I'll take on anyone
It's been a long time, a long time
To walk with the mighty
I won't be a martyr
So let me go, let me go
And I'll take on anyone
These days they're not done
The red summer sun

    General Commentstephan himself ladies and gentalmen:

    "The Red Summer Sun, that's the name of this song, and that's the name of this tour. Somehow, it fits. The idea that these days that we're in right now, this time, the summertime of your life, it will not last my friends... but you know what? These days that we're in right now.. they're not over yet... no, no, no, no, no..." - Stephan Jenkins

    General Commentthe song's just about time that won't last forever. it's saying don't be uptight, just let go and enjoy the time you've got. the sun eventually sets, and so will your time.

    General CommentIt's weird, this song almost seems like a transition from life to afterlife to me. Just the whole imagery of The Red Summer Sun seems kinda fitting for Stephan Jenkins to be talking about. If not that....if definately seems like a "taking it all in" kind of song.

    General Commentthe "I said it's been a long time, been a long time
    To walk with the mighty
    To walk with the mighty
    So let me go, let me go
    On my own" reminds me of some 80's rock or somethin haha

    General CommentThese days won't last, but they're amazing while they do. I don't think you even need to listen to the lyrics to 'get' this song, the music says it all, it hits you right in the stomach. The version with the extended outro is better than sex.

    General Commenta great song to get the adrenaline up; i think it's about taking chances and screwing the horrible possibilities.

    doing whatever it takes to get yourself where you wanna go, because time doesn't wait for anyone

    General Commentthis song encompasses everything i love about 3eb: the fast ROCKNROLL excitement, the haunting "doo loo loo loo loo loo loo loo loo" that only stephen jenkins seems to have a feel for, and the ending that takes it down to the poignancy of the moment. going to their nov. 30th concert this year, they opened with this song. i didn't know it but it stood out to me enough to look for it when i got home.
