    In the Jungle, during one night in each month, the moths didi not come to lanterns; through the black reaches of the outer night, so it was said, they flew toward the moon.

    So it was said. He could not recall where he had heard it, or from whom; it had been somewhere on the rivers of Brazil. He had never watched the lanterns at the time of the full moon; when he remebered it was always the dark of the moon or beyond the tropics. Yet the idea of moths in the high darkness, straining upward, filled him with longing, and at these times he would know that he had not found what he was looking for, nor come closer to discovering what it was.

    ....very smart indeed....i wonder if ill ever get to the moon myself...sometymes it seems like that journey into the black abyss of unknown will swallow me whole...in my darkness i know what unsatisfaction and hopelessness is, and yet there are glimpses of moon light that push me on through all the shit...no one ever told me about the strain of the black, maybe its cause most moths choose not to fly through it...mE

    After years of waiting
    Nothing came
    As your life flashed before your eyes
    You realize

    I'm a reasonable man
    get off, get off, get off my case
    I'm a reasonable man
    get off my case, get off my case

    After years of waiting

    After years of waiting
    Nothing came
    And you realize your looking, looking in the wrong place

    I'm a reasonable man
    get off my case, get off my case
    I'm a reasonable man
    get off my case, get off my case, get off my case

    I'm a reasonable man
    get off my case, get off my case, get off my case

    After years of waiting

    I'm a reasonable man
    get off my case, get off my case, get off my case
    I'm a reasonable man,
    get off my case, get off my case, get off my case

    I'm a reasonable man,
    get off my case, get off my case, get off my case
    I'm a reasonable man,
    get off my case, get off my case, get off my case
