Did I already write liner notes for this? Oh right... I'll copy and paste since I'm gonna delete the old version:
"I wrote this in August 2013, it was hot, and one of my friends was away on a trip in Europe. I was thinking about them and places and how much I hate August.

Part of the chorus is sort of a quote of "Ocean" by Bloodthirsty Butchers. Hence the subsequent lyric saying "quote songs that you love." Just the part about reaching out to the ocean. I love that song. Rest in peace Yoshimura."


I can't say!
Where we'll be

I can't say
where I'm going

I can't stay in one
place for more than
a year straight

I can't stay
here for
too long anyway

You'll be gone two weeks and
that can feel so long when you've

got no job and a
cat scratching at your front door

And one stray sound could
tear your whole life down

you'll be kicked out
so soon after you got in town

I wanted to die
on that 2am bus ride

I'm sorry for
making you run into that bush

reach out to the sea it's 100 miles away
but it reaches all the way to the place where you are

if I could get one touch I'd feel a little closer
and it might be kind of lame but I don't really mind

reach out to the sea let the water cool you down
maybe now you'll clear some space to feel anything at all

I never liked swimming but I like the idea
that touching the Pacific is like circling the earth

I know it's hard
for you to stay at home

It's a complex feeling,
but you've gotta go out on your own

So I wont say
you shouldn't go away

I'll understand
If you never want to come home

it's a little too hot to feel anything at all
but my dried out skin from cycling too long

Estonia seems nice i'd like to go someday
but Seattle seems a little less out of the way

and it's a little too hot but I'll get used to it
i can't let it stop me from smiling too much

so I'll reach out to the sea and quote songs that i love
and it'll rain at least once this year

I never cared for the summer
but for getting off school

But all the songs about the summer
colored it in my head

i remember sitting at my school desk
looking out the window

admiring the same tree every day
reminding me of home

(never ever, never gonna go back
to the place where you grew up

And if you do if you could ever go back it'll never
be the same)

But not everyone had that-
fond memories looking back-

of a home they were glad to grow up in
and to maybe go back

So if you wanna leave I don't blame you
I just hope I can come

i could even love the summer
if I spent it with you

(i never ever wanna come back home
this place just ties me up

to a person a don't wanna see
that I used to be)

Never ever never gonna go back
to the place where you grew up
And if you could if you could ever go back
it'll never be the same

I loved my home
but some times
you just gotta runaway

and make a new home
somewhere far away

I hope we can
find a place that
we love someday

I don't know
where i'll go
but we'll make it anyway
