there’s a new moon
casting over the treetops
keeping me up at night
while you wonder about others

is there any hope
that things will change
in the new light of dawn
that casts unfamiliar shadows

maybe with the daybreak
i’ll come to understand
what it is you take for granted
to help you better understand

with the winds out west
or the islands to the east
whatever causes the shakeup
to bring you back down

i don’t plan to leave
let failures fall aside
help you to regain
the hollow soul of man

the cost of redemption
is to ask yourself
why live for tomorrow
when today let you down

but to rise again
when the sun departs
well the moon and you
are more alike – then once thought
