Eclipse of the Moon

Back to Album listing


Something dark is circling around
People crouch in fear on the ground
And those that stand above the throng with spears
Were normal people ere this night appeared
Waiting, waiting
For an eclipse of the moon
Eclipse of the moon

The clocks chime the departing of the hour
Beneath the totem pole of flesh they cower
And at a stroke my mind is on its own
I break out of the circle all alone
Waiting, waiting
For an eclipse of the moon
Eclipse of the moon

His body's growing old before its time
But his mind wants to live forever
He's out on loan by mistake
His frame must wither
And his unconscious self
Must be withdrawn altogether
Tonight

Something dark is cradled in my arms
The gathering now looks on me with alarm
And I am known to them and everything
When they all see what it is I bring
Waiting, waiting
For an eclipse of the moon
Eclipse of the moon
