"Master of the Moon" as written by and Craig Goldy....
And then you dream
Of a world with only windows
Inside you - you can hide you
You know

And then the night
You're just another empty shadow
No questions - no answers
No one to scream at you

Turn around and when you face the sun
We can make you be like everyone you know
Hey you - you're just master of the moon

And then the eyes
If you look at them they'll blind you
Who are you - what are you
Why do you scream at me

Turn around and when you face the sun
We can make you be like everyone you know
Hey you - you're just master of the moon

We can shake you make you over
We just need some time to
Shed some light upon your darkness
We need your mind

And then you dream again
In a world that only you know
Inside you - you can hide you
No one to scream at you

Turn around and when you face the sun
We can make you be like everyone you know

I'll turn away and never face the sun
You never make me be like you
I'm master of the moon

    General CommentThis song was written about a friend of Ronnie's son, who is at the age where he is becoming defiant and doesn't want to do what anyone tells him, he wants to do what he wants.

    General CommentUh... But the reason why this website exists is that people DO care what the songs mean... :P

    It sort of sounds like this song deals with conformity... To my ears, that is... Then again, my ears are all screwed up, so...

    My OpinionThis is just my personal interpretation, I think the song is supposed to be like an argument.
    But let's start with the chorus.

    I think the "sun" is your average-joe middle of the road lifestyle. Go to college, get job, have babies, die. The "moon" would be breaking off of the path to do what YOU want to do.

    So really, it makes sense that this song would be like an argument between father and son. The first verse hits me hard. "And then the night You're just another empty shadow No questions - no answers No one to scream at you". The subject of the song feels peace by finding his own way in life and not facing all of the timeless issues that come from the "standard' lifestyle.
