There are 2 mountains:

One that everyoneknows,
our eyes would pass by it, it is so well known
I know it's shape while I travel. It waits.
In photos and songs of picturesque living it waits,
But Bright Mountain, all day, trails a growing shadow.

The second peak appears only at night
In the dark this mountain towers and roars.
Dark Mountain trails nothing, and grwos.
Where there were skies there are ocean shadows
and we will be inside.

    General CommentI think this one is about one mountain. During the day it's a tourist spot or a well known landmark. Then in the evening and night it's completely alien. It's unrecognizable in the lack of light blocking the light from the moon, impeding on the night sky.

    General Commenti think the 2 moons/mountains/lakes represents the two sides of phil. in two lakes he describes his happy side that everybody knows, and another side that noone has seen. in two mountains he describes his dark, hidden side in comparison with his bright side/mountain, who like the first lake everyone knows, and describes his dark side like a dark mountain that towers and roars and tries to consume him and all the world as he knows it with him. in the two moons he describes the moon (and the lake and mountain) that everyone knows as just a reflection, as the side he choose to show people, or the side people choose to see, and the dark, invisible side as the real phil.
