lyrics

Hollow Moon


Love, it wouldn’t hurt so much without so many words
My word wanders like a dog without a friend left in the world
Oh motorcycle moon I’m a gunshot through the heart
Of a convict chasing halos through his conscience in the dark

Dancing is hard when you’ve got no heartbeat
When you’ve got no discreet
Way to leave your mind behind
I can barely hold a candle to a ghost
Like a matchstick in a stove
To feel the warmth you’d never know how bad I’d broken

Time is whispering secrets through the woman on my mind
And my mind only wants to leave the gifts of God behind
I’ve never seen a king go down the way my father died
He left me scarred enough to keep the dream alive


Dancing is hard when you’ve got no heartbeat
When you’ve got no discreet
Way to leave your mind behind
I can barely hold a candle to a ghost
Like a matchstick in a stove
To feel the warmth you’d never know how bad I’d broken

More and more the outlaw in me wants to set things right
I sit inside this storm and feel the poems in me die
I watch the changes flash like haunted bats across the sky
Beneath this hollow moon that rolls me down my life
