It's exhausting All this heat It rises like the balloons Full of ******* That promise satisfaction Like a heavy meal In your belly
The mercury is boiling over Fumes that make the hatter Mad and frustrated Sad and depressed Searching for a better tomorrow But we know it's in jest
The court is full of sparks Flashes in the pan That leave you blinking Unable to focus Palms pressed to your eyes Calling forth so many stars Were struck dumb
Like fireflies in the summer air They flicker in and out And maybe if we cross our eyes Just right, they can focus Take away our doubt And fill the glass half full
But this heat is relentless A fever pitch that's begging for an end No matter how full we want Our glass to be, the drops will rise Condensation clinging to the sides A mist that relents and moves into the air A collective sigh of defeat.
