The Man in the Moon
Composer: Jerry Spurlock

I was thinking today we've discovered a way
to escape from the Earth, it's the birth of an aeon.
We can fly to the stars, make the far planets ours:
then I thought of the Man in the Moon.

We have taken our sweat and we've taken our brains,
and we've grabbed all we have of our worldly possessions.
We've taken the best and used all the rest
but you can't take the man from the moon.

You can rob him, you can blind him, you can knock him down:
you can chain him away where the shadows are looming.
You can beat him you can bind him,
you can tie him to the ground,
but you can't take the man from the moon.

Now there's some that go hungry and some die in war,
and the reasons we hear they're completely confusing.
But you take it in stride though you feel mystified
and we think of the Man in the Moon


Now it's said when you're dead that life comes to a head,
that there's nothing beyond but the dust of our fathers.
And the astronauts say if you judge by today
there was never a Man in the Moon

Well, we take what we hear with a kernel of fear:
it is generally agreed that there's little solution.
But beneath the despair there's a light shining there
'cause you can't take the man from the moon.
