Song: Yellow Moon

It All Comes Out

Album: It All Comes Out
Track: #6

The inspiration for this song was, of course, the moon one night. It was, by my estimation, a "piss yellow moon," but that never lent itself to the right lyrics, unfortunately.

Underneath a jet black night and a dirty yellow moon
I thought the time was right and I thought she thought so too
But those lies and fantasies and that superficial trust
Coerce and imitate like wind inspires dust

And wouldn't you know it
Time wipes it all away
And wouldn't you know it
Can't feel guilty today

I once held tight to what I thought I needed in my life
A pocket full of money and a lucky pair of dice
I struck a path painted out by a dirty yellow moon
And here I am all alone where trouble renders youth

And wouldn't you know it
Time wipes it all away
And wouldn't you know it
Can't feel guilty today

Wanna go on forever but I know that it can't be
Wanna find a place that I can say I'll never see
A yellow moon fades away across a bluer sky
And while I wait for time to pass my life passes by

And wouldn't you know it
Time wipes it all away
And wouldn't you know it
Can't feel guilty today

And wouldn't you know it
Time wipes it all away
And wouldn't you know it
Can't feel this way

Wanna go on forever but I know that it can't be
