Anthony’s Black Summer

The first single from the forthcoming RHCP album Unlimited Love has been released! It’s called Black Summer. The song references recent events of the pandemic and there is also a reference to the sad passing of Anthony’s father, Blackie Dammett, last year.

Lyrics: “Black Summer”

A lazy rain am I
The skies refuse to cry
Cremation takes its piece of your supply

The night is dressed like noon
A sailor spoke too soon
And China’s on the dark side of the moon

Platypus are a few
The secret life of roo*
A personality I never knew
My Greta weighs a ton
The archers on the run
And no one stands alone behind the sun

It’s been a long time since I made a new friend
Waiting on another black summer to end
It’s been a long time and you never know when
Waiting on another black summer to end

Crack the flaming whip
Sailing on a censorship
Riding on a headless horse to make the trip

Been a long time since I made a new friend
Waiting on another black summer to end
It’s been a long time and you never know when
Waiting on another black summer to end

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting
Waiting on another black summer to end
I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting
Waiting on another black summer to end
I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting
Waiting on another black summer to end
I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting
Waiting on another black summer to end

(*trying to decide if it’s ‘roo as in an abbreviation of kangaroo as that fits with the platypus in being an Australian creature, or if it’s Roo as in the Winnie the Pooh character).
