about

"Devil's Moon" was inspired by Margaret Atwood's novel THE BLIND ASSASSIN.

lyrics

light the candle, fill the cup, look out at the moon
time is running out and there is nothing left to lose
but just for now I know this much is true
a smoke-filled room, a devil's moon and you

love sneaks up before you know, there's nothing you can do
you're swept away regardless once it gets its hands on you
and once upon a time it was still new
but time stands still for no one even you

if I knew
I’d tell you where it hurts
every day
it’s the end of the world

thicker than clear water, can you feel its steady rise
you’ll drown in it once it reaches the level of your eyes
and if we knew the future we’d be doomed
but there’s no future left for me and you

if I knew
I’d tell you where it hurts
every day
it’s the end of the world

and when the world ends tell me where do we go
carnivorous angels above or the oven below
now that you’ve mastered the art of killing me slow
love me forever or go on and cut my throat

burn the candle, drain the cup, howl at the moon
time is running out and there is nothing left to lose
but just for now I know this much is true
a smoke-filled room, a devil's moon and you

a smoke-filled room, a devil's moon and you
a smoke-filled room, a devil's moon and you
a smoke-filled room, a devil's moon and you
