about

Everything in this song is half-remembered. For best results, listen at a modest volume when feeling pensive or frisky.

lyrics

Big white moon
Looking down on the valley
Baby's higher than her ivory tower
Skipping stones barefoot in the creek water

But her fears and her vices
Are killing her young

Big white moon
Making shapes move in the graveyard
I'm sleepwalking for this big smiling diner rat
she doesn't even like me until 3 in the morning

And she cuts her life
Together on film

Town's a blurry switchboard at midnight
Country winds and drives her nowhere
It's black as pitch and blue as sapphire
But that white moon is bright and full

Big white moon, double feature
Cutting outlines from sterling silver
Layman's daughter, porcelain figure
She won't die alone, because she won't die at all.

When I drive her home,
I'm bitten by the beast

Town's a blurry switchboard at midnight,
Country winds and drives her nowhere,
It's black as pitch and blue as sapphire,
But that white moon is bright and full
Think i'll take the long way home...
