Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Remember if you marry for beauty, thou bindest thyself all thy life for that which perchance, will neither last nor please thee one year: and when thou hast it, it will be to thee of no price at all.
- Walter Raleigh, English Statesman and Man of Letters (1552-1618)

Under the cloak of nightfall
Up on the top of the hill
You showed me to your sacred spot
I’ll never get my fill

My heart is yours to swallow
Your heart is mine to steal
I never could deny my heart
It’s just the way I feel

I’ll probably burn
I’ll probably burn
I’ll probably burn
I wanna burn inside your soft warm glow ‘cause you’re the one I
yearn to know
If I could live for one more day I’d die to know you in every way
So smother me inside your chest and know that in peace I will rest
I’ll drown inside your deep brown eyes, it’s such a lovely way to die

Our plans are made in secret
Our hearts in conspiracy
If they could read my thoughts right now
They’d hang me from a tree

My heart is yours to play with
Your heart is mine to steal
I never could deny my heart
It’s just the way I feel

I’ll probably burn . . .

I wanna burn inside your soft warm glow . . .

Burn inside your soft warm glow . . .

My spirits are high as I drown myself
My aspirations placed upon a shelf
A friend of a friend once said of me
I’ve got a good heart but it’s saturated

And no one can save me from myself
And I do not care to even try

I have vandalized my soul
I have lost the will to care
I don’t know if there’s a hell
But I’d rather meet the souls down there

I’ve never had faith in the world’s religions
Material things I have no respect for
There’s nothing in life I look forward to
If this was a country I would be a defector

And if I – and if I – and if I wanted to try
No one could save me from myself
Goodnight now

I have vandalized my soul . . .

I have scandalized my name
I have lost the will to care . . .

I am blessed and I am cursed, I’m the best and I’m the worst
I am blessed and I am – CURSED

I’m the best and I’m the worst, I am blessed and I am cursed
I’m the best and I’m the worst, I’m a mess and I am cursed
And I’m drivin’ my own hearse, I am blessed and I am cursed
I’m the best and I’m the worst

Listen:  Oceans

Oceans – make mountains out of molehills
Make something out of something in the way that the sparkle faded from
your eyes

Seasons – change people like the weather
The haze of winter, it can make you forget the sun was ever even there

Why can’t I shake this?
Why can’t I break this?
Why can’t I take this void and chew it up and spit it in your face?

All you brought me is heartache
But my spirit, it won’t break
I don’t need you any more
Let me show you to the door
Let me say goodbye, my friend
May we never meet again
Let me say goodbye, my friend
May we never meet again

Oceans – make mountains out of molehills . . .

Why can’t I shake this . . .

The girl has got the goods, oh yes

Dreams of apricots in my head
Lyin’ softly in a velvet bed
Lookin’ through the walls around her
As her lips move slowly in a blur
She’s got beauty deeper than skin
We’ve got everything we need for sin
Am I wrong or does she dig me?
Am I one more fish inside her sea?

Cutest cutie I ever done seen
I wanna taste of nectarine
You look so good you look so fine
You get me drunker than any wine

What do you know, I’ve lost control
That girl was born to rock n’ roll (x 2)

And I say that it’s alright (x 4)

I was scarred for life at fourteen
Disillusioned by the things I’d seen
Weddings only serve to bring me down
Vows are often only spoken sound
You’ve got beauty deeper than skin
Can you help me find myself again?
Yes I know I’ve got a crush on you
We can dream of futures that come true

Cutest cutie I ever done seen . . .

What do you know, I’ve lost control . . .

And I say that it’s alright (x 3)

I love you more than life itself
I love you more than my own health
You make me wish that I was dead
So I could forget what you said

Emasculate me with your photos and the comments that you make
And you can have me as you want me with that one thing that you break

You cut me down to size with your tongue, cut me any way you can
Defined by how I am hung, I am nothing but a man
You flash your scissor smile, cut me any way you can
I cannot help what I am, I am nothing but a man

I love you more than I can say
But you’re too bored to watch me play
I sing with all that I possess
You’d rather have me in a dress

I think she’s made herself quite clear, now I think I understand
There’s one thing she must take from me, then I’d be her perfect man

You cut me down to size with your tongue . . .

They died without a dime
They died before their prime
They had a damn good time

If only I could be your girl
We’d travel ‘round the whole wide world
But I can only be your man
Forgive me for the way I am

You cut me down to size with your tongue . . .
