mr.moon what are we gonna do?
running away is getting old
and i’m dying from the cold
and you, shimmering bright and blue
resting lazy in the sky
would you send some answers why
is everyone as heartless as they seem
as for now i’m just ripping at the seems
is there something we should know
as we’re basking in the glow
of you, mr.moon

mr.moon tell me it isn’t true
has she gone and left me on my own
with lost directions home
and whomever is glad to choose
makes the choice and then rejoices
one more way to lose
is everyone as hopeless as they seem?
as for now, i’m just jumping at the beams
is there something we should know
as we’re basking in the glow
of you, mr.moon

mr.moon send me the written proof
of the births and deaths
and names and threats
of all the crooks you knew
there’s too many to name a few
who take their years and disappear
so tell me, tell me why
is everyone just aching to be saved?
as for now, i’m just looking to escape
is there somewhere we can go
as we’re basking in the glow
we miss you awful so
and we’re bent on staying low
is there nothing left to know
in the basking, in the glow
of you, mr.moon
