Oh Lord

So you thank me for my hard work
But you've had it up to there
Cos this shouldn't be hard work
But I'll fight to care if you'd care to fight

Thank you for your hard work
But I've had it up to here
Cos this shouldn't be hard work
Least not the kind that makes us half a person, half a monster
Stuck together in this hot scary summer

Oh Lord
Hot scary summer
Ohhh

Remember kissing on the cobblestones
in the heat of the night
And all the pretty young homophobes
looking out for a fight

We got good at pretending
Then pretending got us good
We've always been up against it but now it's sad to see we're up against each other
In this hot scary summer

Oh Lord
Hot scary summer
Ohhhh

Oh I live inside you
And you live in me
And I live inside you
And you live in me
Nothings gonna change that dear
Nothings gonna change that dear
Not even being apart
We travelled right to the heart of this hot scary summer

Oh Lord
The hot scary summer
Ohhh

So you thank me for my hard work
But we've had it up to here
Cos this shouldn't be hard work
Least not the kind that makes us half a person, half a monster
Stuck together in this hot scary summer

    General CommentConor says about this song :

    Hot Scary Summer was really weird because I don't really sit down and think I'm going to write about this. It kind of happens in steps. When I wrote Hot Scary Summer I was in Japan and we were asking the crew, that were helping us pack our gear down, how to say, thank you for your hard work. [The translation sounded similar to, hot scary summer]. Thank you for your hard work is the first line of the song now. It kind of reminded me of what it feels like at the end of a relationship.

    My experience of relationships ending are all tied in with memories of being threatened with violence on the street. I've had very homophobic experiences. It just all started to tie in. Whenever I start to sing about the negative aspects of relationships and love, that kind of instantly came into my head. So I was like I can't leave this out if I'm going to be honest about this. So it just kind of went in there.
