"Moon Baby" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
Let's take a blast to the moon baby
I sit around wishing you well
How I'm craving you, yeah!
Every time I'm near you
I always want to swallow you down
I'll be right here if ya need me
In my life, ill need you here, don't ask why
I'll never disappear
Why is it every day that I feel the pain?
Lets take a trip to the stars far away
Where were you when I was down?
Staring into the dead
My pain is caused by my pleasure
My soul mate lives in your body
I can't get you out of my head
It never goes away
In my life, ill need you here, don't ask why
I'll never disappear
In your eyes you can bid me farewell
But don't ever try to understand the situation
Why is it everyday that I feel the pain?

    General CommentBleh listening to it more sounds like "I always said I'd never feel this way again, but I just keep making the same fucking mistakes over and over and over... I can't believe I thought this would be over"

    General CommentThis song means that he found it, what we all look for, a real feeling of passionate love on every level for someone and it can only be explained if she was indeed his soul mate. For whatever reason, they cannot be together but that does not mean that the thoughts or the love he feels for her ever stops. Sadly for them, it is an impossible love and he knows it. In a desperate attempt to be with her, he suggests taking a trip far away from the reality that keeps them apart but she won’t go. He desperately wants her to know that what he feels is real. He wants her to know that she is tattooed in his brain. He wants her to know that he wants her by his side when times are hard wondering why it can’t be in her arms, close to her heart, that he finds refuge in his dark times. He wants to offer her the same support, that she may find refuge in his arms, close to his heart at well. He has all these good wishes for her. He wants her to know that he desires not only her body but also her soul. When he’s in the same room with her no matter what time of day, she becomes his full moon baby driving him to lunacy with love. He tries to make her understand when she asks what is happening that there is no explanation for what is taking place in his heart or in his head. He wants her to know that he’ll be there if she calls and that he’ll wait for her forever if he has to even though the pain of being without her makes his body physically ache. His ache then turns to anger that makes him regret what he can’t help feeling, that burning, crazy, in-love feeling he had forbidden himself to feel again. Even though he tries to fight himself and this feeling of love at the end of the song, he knows he can’t fight the way he feels. When he sees her again, he knows his heart will melt because it’s all real and it makes him prisoner to a feeling of pleasure for loving her followed by pain because he knows she can’t be by his side.

    General CommentMaybe it's because he has this vision of the perfect woman and goes out seeking her but can never find her so she just lives in his head in a fantasy world. He just wants to travel to the stars with her, he can do anything with her because she doesn't exist.

    I don't know, I just a thought.

    General Commenthey offdutyninja17, FUCK YOU! u know nothing about godsmack u bible-holdin' fuckin' prick. how is godsmack satanic? "LOOK AT THERE NAME!" there name came from either the cold sore story, or from the song God Smack by the greatest band ever, Alice In Chains. don't judge a book by it's cover asshole. they don't write about the devil. sully writes about himself. the only song not about himself is voodoo which he said is about some movie i can't think of write now cuz i'm too pissed off. fuck u douche bag!

    sorry bout bout that every1, but people like that piss me off

    I think it's about a girl that he loves with all his heart, but he doesn't know if she feels that way about him too. and he's too shy to ask her if she loves him or to tell her he loves her. that's wut i get out of it cuz i'm goin thru that now.

    Has any1 seen them play this live. it's even better. and when the intrumental part kicks in the pit goes fuckin ape shit! they gotta put out a live album.

    General CommentI think that this song is about how he is in love with a girl, yet she pushes him away....
    "my pain is caused by my pleasure
    my soul mate lives in your body
    I can't get you out of my head
    It never goes away
    In my life I'll need you here, don't ask why
    I'll never disappear
    In your eyes you can bid me farwell
    but don't ever try to understand the situation
    why is it everyday that I feel the pain?
    It always comes when I least expect it
    when I'm looking for love
    always seem to be regretting it"

    the last times pretty much say that he regrets looking for love cause all it does is bring him pain..that's how i see this...
