summer dreams, like opium and heat
floating down the gutter in a paper boat
they were deceptive and completely inconsistent
with everything that's happened since the air got cold

I woke up sweating from a nightmare
the sky was purple and I breathed it in
and all the twists and turns and miscommunications
were hallucinations from the lack of air conditioning

late nights walking in the dirty part of town
in hope of building the disguise

so I'll waste my precious time, as if dreams were easily come by
and in the morning I'll be gone to emphasize that I was hardly trying
and the summer makes me fall in love a hundred times
but I'll the waste day away, criticizing and fantasizing

the steam that rises after rainstorms
and makes the air so wet and hard to breathe
blinds my eyes and leaves me stranded, suffocating
lost in the parking lot before I leave

as the lane was beating down upon my hood
spontaneous trips across the state to find some company
