Half-moon is keeping my time,
I'm halfway out of my mind.
I called you to tell you to sleep,
called me mom, I said that's me.

'Cause I gave birth to your sheep last night,
took pictures in case of fight.
I couldn't've proved to you it's true,
I have my herd to follow you to the half-moon.

To the half-moon, sun in the sky,
where the sidewalk is a purple light.
Sneakers that are overused,
I'm telling bad jokes and spreading good news.

To the big bears living in the woods,
they'll be there to collect the goods.
Better times and cooler places,
the pool table is making faces at the half-moon.

At the half-moon, and it's for the night,
your cigarette is drawing lines,
and the animals connect the dots,
with cooly dreams and drunken thoughts.

At the half-moon, your eyes lights are out
and no one dares to shout
at the baby bird who flutters by
with just one wing he'll make you cry at the half-moon.

At the half-moon with the daylight fades
and the headlights drive away.
But in the park, the place stays dark,
hear him howl, hear him bark

At the half-moon, and I cannot see.
At the half-moon, and I cannot breathe.
The writing that's on the wall,
it says I tried and I let him fall at the half-moon.

And animals are pretty too,
they'll fuck you up like people do.

    General Commenthi, just like to make a note that i created a thread for Blair Gimma because this thread was originally meant for another band called Blair. didn't know how to sort that out, so i just used her full name instead.

    The halfmoon
    is keeping my time
    I'm halfway
    out of my mind
    I called you
    tell you to sleep
    called me mom
    I said that's me

    Cause I gave birth
    to the sheep last night
    took pictures
    in case a fight
    Occured to prove
    to you it's true
    I have my herd
    we'll follow you

    to the halfmoon
    to the halfmoon
    to the halfmoon

    To the half-moon
    the sun in the sky
    where the sidewalk
    is a parking lot
    of sneakers that are overused
    from telling bad jokes and spreading good news

    To the big bears
    living in the woods
    we'll be there
    to collect the goods
    Better times and cooler places
    a pool table
    is making faces

    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon

    At the halfmoon
    and it's full tonight
    and your cigarette
    is drawing lines,
    and the animals
    connect the dots
    with pulley dreams and drunken thoughts.

    At the halfmoon
    your eyes lights are out
    and no one
    dares to shout
    at the baby bird
    who flutters by
    with just one wing he'll make you cry

    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon

    At the halfmoon
    with the daylight fades
    and the headlights drive away
    But in the bar
    the place stays dark,
    hear him howl
    hear him bark

    at the halfmoon
    and I cannot see.
    at the halfmoon
    and I cannot breathe
    The writing
    that's on the wall,
    it says I tried and I love you all

    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon
    at the halfmoon

    And the animals
    are pretty too
    they can fuck you up
    like people do
