"Indian Summer" as written by and Kelly Jones....
I can't believe he's such a sore loser,
Maybe someday you'll learn that 'coffee is for closers
Raise up the glass and toast the mother f---er,
Just move along.

How did you get that brusie up on your shoulder?
You are so Sisyphus
Just pushing on your boulder
Someday you'll take a break
When you're older you just move along

I had a dream her teeth were butter-colored
and they crumbled to dust as she kissed her former lover
So I severed his hands and glued them to her Mother
Just glued them on

Just what is it about Indian Summer?
Makes a promise, then steals the chance of gentle winter
Maybe I'm just a sucker for the colors
That just move along?

    General CommentI think this song is telling us to just get over whatever it is that holds us down. Torturing ourselves over things we cannot control will not get us anywhere so move on . . . easier said then done I suppse.

    General Commenti really like the guitar and melody of this song. I think he's comparing a circumstance in his life to an indian summer. Basically, you get caught up in all the amazingness for a while and forget that it's all bound to end. Eventually, you have to teach yourself to just keep moving on
