Ballad Of The Moonlight Lover

Once I have given up the ghost of
my dead brother,
everything will follow with dead certainty,
Even in the midst of my lonely chaos
High up above, the Moon will glow gently like a ghostly orb.
I dream of Intergalactic time travel in the night
But in reality, I’m sleeping with the worms
in the underworld, with my fists clenched really tight.

Chorus

I Came out with my hands straight up
Surrender to a world fucked up
Cannot make my mind stuff up
Go and get myself all used up

Smelly machinations in the atmosphere
Have me smoking with unicorns high above the stratosphere
Fucking with the reindeer
Sphinctering the Sphinx
Sucked into a Maelstrom of human waste and high jinx
Dynamite the control room of ground control mind control.
Like a Pop culture junkie
You cannot hide the emptiness of your soul
Crimes against art
Crimes against poetry
Crimes against humanity
Crimes against sanity

Chorus

I came out with my hands straight up
Surrender to a world fucked up
Cannot make my mind stuff up
Go and get myself all used up

Down to the sea in ships at last
Winding down that road to nowhere fast
Breaking ground where angels once feared to tread
I move to where no ship, horse or donkey has gone before to destinations unknown in dread.

Chorus

I came out with my hands straight up
Surrender to a world fucked up
Cannot make my mind stuff up
Go and get myself all used up

The Moon travels throughout the night alone
Like a lone wolf in the wilderness without a bone
She looks down upon a zillion city lights
And watches the hapless armies in flight.
Cannot understand our reasons to fight
Cannot fathom why we have to fight for life.

Chorus

I Came out with my hands straight up
Surrender to a world fucked up
Cannot make my mind stuff up
Go and get myself all used up
