about

Composed by David Costanza to his translation of "La Lune offensée" by Charles Baudelaire.

lyrics

Observe! The opulent offended moon,
Whom hippies once fawned over much like a God.
Observe! The rock-star his back to the crowds
Alone in his star-spangled black velvet room.

Too much! The ecstatic tripping-machine,
A sky-clad parade full of titties & ass
Too much! The sensual snakes-in-the-grass
& spent-lovers sleep-staring all through the scene

Are you still chasing movie-stars all through the night?
French-kissing record executives' wives?
Living the Dream but the dream isn't life?

"O, to be onstage, unknown and invisible
Spy your mother ancient and cool,
Reflect in her infinity-pool:
I might be broken, but I'm real.”
