Summer is lost now
The frost is closing in
To the cold gospel dollar
The poor man walks in sin
I can't get no entrance 
The doors all in rows
I pray into the distance 
Let me outta these heavy clothes

I beg
 Indian summer I need some return 
So hard to get warm now
And so easy to get burned 
Down on the pavement the laws are learned 
It's so hard to get warm where 
It's so easy to get burned 

When a sister called up
And said that love had broken down
I said there too much ice around here
To find no solid ground
Well I just squeezed a season 
From this paper bag
I pray to the burning tires
Wrap my feet in rags

 Begging  Indian summer I need some return 
It's so hard to get warm now
And so easy to get burned 
Down on the pavement the laws are learned 
It's so hard to get warm where 
It's so easy to get burned 

Now the sky is empty 
The street is sweating tears
 Communion at the station 
For a million grinding gears 
Well I'm riding out this century 
The harvest engines sing
From the church of mercenaries 
To a naked virgin spring 

I'm singing  Indian summer I need some return 
It's so hard to get warm now
And so easy to get burned 
Down on the pavement the laws are learned 
It's so hard to get warm where 
It's so easy to get burned 

Hard to get warm where 
It's so easy to get burned
