"New Moon Rising" as written by and Andrew James Stockdale....
And the fields are turning
And the temperature is rising
See the factories burning
(when?) the wheels keep turning

Well, I've seen that you've grown now
With the horses you ride
Gonna have your say now
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don't mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don't mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

I see this small town boy now
From a small town family
He's got to find his way now
Gotta find himself a woman
With the skill of the people
He don't wanna be no whipping boy
Well, the time has come now
Gotta hit the highway

Oh, she don't mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don't mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

I see the new moon rising

I see the new moon rising

See the new moon rising
When the (tides are turning)
She got the (luck of knowing)
She got the (? showing)
Well, they're all in-love now
And, see the (fields are turning)
I see the new moon rising

I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don't mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

Oh, she don't mind
She got the time
I see the new moon rising

    General Commentthis song is obviously about the second book of the Twilight Saga, "New Moon". The parallels are quite obvious.

    General CommentSweet! First comment!
    ok here it goes-
    The main idea is teens growing up
    and becoming productive adults.
    The first part is about a girl,
    and the second (obviously) a boy.
    At the end they meet each other, OR
    just their other half.

    And the fields are turning-------->time passes
    And the temperature is rising----->season change
    See the factories burning--------->observing town life
    (when?) the wheels keep turning--->thinking of money/work

    Well, I've seen that-------------->obvious
    you've grown now------------------>obvious
    With the horses you ride---------->the girl is more skilled
    Gonna have your say now----------->obvious
    I see the new moon rising

    Oh, she don't mind
    She got the time
    I see the new moon rising------->she is waiting patiently for something
    -------------------------------->possibly to get rich?, find a job?, husband?

    I see this small town boy now
    From a small town family
    he's got to find his way now
    Gotta find himself a woman------>everything above is pretty obvious
    With the skill of the people
    He don't wanna be no whipping boy>this refers to him being unskilled
    Well, the time has come now------>and nervous about being mistreated
    Gotta hit the highway------------>in the work world

    That's all I have, some help?

    General Commentthis song is about a girl who pretends to choke on food to get money and free meals. Her boyfriend isn't very good at it. she wonders if she should stay with him because he's just holding her back from achieving her dreams

    General CommentThese are all pretty nice meanings. But I'm pretty sure it's about sex in the *ech ehm* aka moon.

    General CommentPlease make sure you have all the lyrics before submitting, as there are WAY too many parentheticals and question marks above. If you aren't sure, don't submit lyrics.
