The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical - The Last Day of Summer Lyrics


"The Last Day of Summer" is a song performed by Chris McCarrell (Percy), James Hayden Rodriguez (Luke), Ensemble from The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical.

PERCY
What do you do when the quest has ended?
What do you do when the battle's won?
So many questions left unanswered
So many things still left undone

What do you do
When it's up to you to choose:
Has something ended or begun?
Stay or go? Pick one

Do I stay because it's safer?
Back to the home I left behind?
I could stay and train for a piece of the action
But what about peace of mind?

Ugh! What's my deal?
Why do I feel
There's something left I still
Need to find?

Where do you go when it's over?

PERCY & ENSEMBLE
What do you do when you've come to
The last day of summer?

MR. D (spoken)
Attention, campers. It's the last day of summer.
If you intend to make me miserable year-round, please inform us by sundown.
Otherwise, the cleaning harpies will eat anyone who remains!
Perry Johanssen, this means you.

PERCY (spoken)
It's Percy Jackson.

MR. D (spoken)
Whatever!

PERCY (spoken)
How come you don't go home?

ANNABETH (spoken)
I tried. Once. My dad couldn't deal with the monster attacks,
and my stepmom couldn't deal with me. It's just asking for trouble.

PERCY (spoken)
Sometimes family is worth the trouble. Believe me.

ANNABETH (spoken)
I guess we both have a choice to make, Seaweed Brain.

ALL
Where do you go when it's over?
What do you when you've come to
The last day of summer?

PERCY (spoken)
Luke!

LUKE (spoken)
If it isn't the big hero.

PERCY (spoken)
I've barely seen you since I got back. You avoiding me?

LUKE (spoken)
Not at all. Tough last day?

PERCY (spoken)
I thought when I finished my quest, everything would make sense.
But it doesn't. It's the last day of summer, but I don't feel like anything's over.

LUKE (spoken)
I get it. My quest was supposed to be the biggest thing in my life.
I came back changed. But the rest of camp was exactly the same.

(sung)
Chiron always says our parents made camp
As this safe magic space

(spoken)
The truth: it's so they don't have to see us

(sung)
They won't bother to show their face
It's time to make the world our own
Time someone put them in their place

(spoken)
Ares thought we were starting a war between the gods, but it was bigger than that.
It's about wiping them out - and taking our turn.

PERCY (spoken)
You're the lightning thief.

LUKE (spoken)
The Oracle warned you. "Betrayed by a friend."

PERCY (spoken)
You set me up. You were trying to free Kronos. Why?

LUKE (spoken)
He promised me the power to defeat our parents.

PERCY (spoken)
He's using you! To get back at the gods!

LUKE (spoken) Good!

(sung)
I've been here since I was a kid
I did everything they ever asked, yeah I did
And for what?

You know this world will never be ours
As long as our parents rule over the stars

ENSEMBLE
What do you do on the last day of summer?

LUKE (sung)
So I'll do anything
I don't care if I hurt anyone
It doesn't pay to be a good kid,
A good kid, a good son

The gods were never on our side
So I think it's time we watch them fall
And soon you'll see what I did
Soon they'll be no gods at all!

ENSEMBLE
Summer, summer, summer, summer
Summer, summer, summer, summer
