"Moonshine" as written by Demetrius Christian Savelio and Aliaune Thiam....
And I feel like the night is closing, I know it is
Do you feel it burning in my blood
Burning in my blood like it's setting me fire.

And I feel like a cloud is closing in, I know it is
As I slip into a hazy crazy world, I know I am
Sooner or later moonshine in my brain
Turning me around till there's madness in the air.

Turning water into wine, till there's nothing left to burn
Courage deserted me tonight.

And in the moments that I have when peace is all around
I can see clearly now, and what I see
There's your world and there's mine
There's so little in between
But listen my love
We will never know which one of us has got it right.

Coz baby the things I do are hurting everyone
I know they are. I've got to try to find the door
Sooner or later it will turn me inside out
Begone all those who would torment me
I've an answer for you now.

And I'm glad it's not late to give it up, I know it's not
All I need's a year or two to rearrange, to rearrange
I can feel it burning in my blood
Turning me around till there's madness in the air.

Turning water into wine, till there's nothing left to burn
Courage deserted me tonight.

And in the moments that I have when peace is all around
I can see clearly now, and what I see
There's your world and there's mine
There's so little in between
But listen my love
We will never know which one of us has got it right.

Turning water into wine, till there's nothing left to burn
Courage deserted me tonight.

Turning water into wine, till there's nothing left to burn
Courage deserted me tonight.

    General CommentAs in Moonshine whiskey. Not necessarily a song about alcoholism, but possibly a song about someone quite depressed who has found an outlet through self-medicating with alcohol. With lines like a cloud "closing in" and feeling it "burning in my blood, turning me around till there's madness in the air", and of course the last line in the song "courage deserted me tonight" says it all. The person is depressed, worn down and discouraged about things in life as an explanation of his slipping into his "hazy crazy world" of drinking. The theme is so real and fucked up and beautiful all at the same time, it bring me to tears. A brilliant song from my favorite Genesis-related solo album.And "Say It's Alright Joe" and "Twilight Alehouse" also seem to be about the same kind of thing. Mike can write these kinds of songs like no one else can, so deep and poignant, and very touching.
