Lyrics:

some summer you have planned for me / look at all these tourists as they flock to the sea / getting in the water like it’s nothing but it’s not without a consequence / I hear it comes quite naturally but that description doesn’t fit with me / not going over, never going under / not without a consequence / the narrows, the river empty into the sea / some summer you have planned for me, emptied into the sea / such a good man, had a good job / I’d take up swimming for the patriarch /now dispersed so casually like sediment into the sea / the swollen moon all flushed with red / one eclipse away from the Bay of the Dead / it ain’t right I’m telling you / it’s more than coincidence / one stroke at a time on my way back to land / it’s better for me with my feet in the sand / some summer you have planned for me, emptied into the sea
