The Songs of Gallus Line
Moon Shines

Moon shines,
City does too.
Freeway goes both ways through.
It'll take you where want to go,
If you're going
Where it goes.

It's just a matter of some valleys, and
Of a few roads.
To be where she's laying.
I lay here tonight:
I want to go out there tonight.

Left the factories in seventy-five,
Damn place was eating me up alive.
Lost no time dropped right in school:
Old man kept saying
"Don't be a fool".

And now I find
I'm losing the rest of my mind.
I can hear 'em say
"You'll never make it anyway".

And some cry out to me:
"My name is Cerce -
I am Dido".

And I'm not Aeneas
Nor was I meant to be.
My name is Hamlet,
There's similarity -
Too much similarity.

Ophelia come away with me!
Ophelia I can see,
When you laugh or
When you cry,
It's because you're alive!
You're alive, you're alive,
You're alive, you're alive,
You're alive.

Depressions and UFO's.
Combine'll kill you:
That's how it goes.

Well it can have my body,
But not my soul.
I'd kill myself before
I let that go.

It amazes me
How I've hung on so long.
So damn sensitive
Something always brings me down.

I try to reach out and
Bridge reality.
But my mind gets in the way and
That's all I can see
All I can know.
