Different moon

(c) Breeze Vincinz


Your song has bled us bone dry

Wonder about our masochism

Our bodies bread, our blood wine

Our desperation catechism



The air is a disease aquarium

Holding our breath for a cure

Our voices used to carry them

But nothing is for sure



Not anymore; it’s a different moon

Not every door opens to a better room



And we don’t dream like we used to

Back when sleeping was easy to do



How about instead of dreaming of you

I dream for you

And somehow that wakes you up

And brings you back to me



My dream was like a memory

I blame it on the sun

It gleamed away identity

Leaving the battle scars we won



Our afflictions and addictions

Together we love and cope

Not loam deep definitions

With no future or hope



Not anymore; it’s a different moon

Not every door opens to a worse room



Our nightmares got bigger as we did

Our fears just as scary as any kid



How about instead of dreaming of you

I dream for you

And somehow that wakes you up

And brings you back to me



How about instead of running to you

I wait for you

And somehow that shakes you up

And you run back to me



With your rebel heart and outlaw spirit

Clear a path in this dark, dark world

Sharpen yourself, your decency, your wit

Clear a path in this cold, dark world



How about instead of praying for you

I have faith in you

To clear a path in this dark, dark world

Clear a path in this cold, dark world



I am crying for you

I am crying with you



I wonder about our masochism

And that song you sing

And how I always listen

And the blood it brings



And the men we become

When the sun gleams us bare

Complete aura freedom

And I’m in love with what I see there



Forevermore; it’s a different moon

It knows the sun will be coming soon



Sleep isn’t always easy but in the same bed

If I can’t dream, put my hand behind my head



And instead of dreaming of you

I’ll dream for you

And somehow that wakes you up

And it’ll bring you back to me



And instead of praying for you

I’ll have faith in you

And somehow you’ll find me

And you’ll run back to me
