Yellow flowers
Bought today
I bought 'em from the man who lives in the other way
Wilting flowers
Couldn't stay
Not enough water gotta fill 'em to the brink today

Another moonshine
Oh, moonshine
Moonlight halo gonna tell about a coming rain
Another moonshine
Oh, moonshine
Moonlight halo gonna tell about a coming ...

I don't believe it can be verified
I don't believe it can be put right
It's too confused in all of its facets
It's too complex in all of its ways
They just continuing to tell me their trouble
They just continuing to tell me their lies
They don't believe in helping their brother
They're standing still and hearing his cries
If you believe that you got the power
If you believe it deep in your heart
You're on the run in front of a gunner
You're on the run and no one said start

I said moonshine
Oh, moonshine
Moonlight halo gonna tell about a coming rain
Another moonshine
Oh, moonshine
Moonlight halo gonna tell about a coming ...

Red moon rising, dogs are howling
Throwing stones at Willy on the other side
Octogenarians intermarrying
What you gonna do when the light goes out?
Madly scrambling in the brambling
Up the mountain like a frightened trout
Killing relieves the hunting imperative
Maiming relieves the sadist's delight
They don't believe in what they are doing
I do believe that they are uptight
Safe and secure in maudlin commodities
Smug and pedantic into their lives
Stupidity can never make answers
Pathos is there in all of its might

I said moonshine
Oh, moonshine
Moonlight halo gonna tell about a coming rain
Another moonshine
Oh, moonshine
Moonlight halo gonna tell about a coming rain

Talk about after, there's gonna be laughter
Talk about after, yeah, there's gonna be laughter
Talk about after, heh, there's gonna be laughter someday
Talk about after, there's gonna be laughter someday

Another sunshine
Oh, sunshine
Sunshine comin' gonna be another brand new day, yeh
Sunshine comin' gonna be another brand new day, ah
Sunshine comin' gonna be another brand new day
Sunshine comin' gonna be another brand new ...
