Hung on the Moon Louise

Hung on the Moon Louise

Hung on the moon
like a big balloon
...that black silver cloud
for crying out loud
which hugs my tears
and scours my eyes
and feeds my soul
with its empty hole
with a six pack of beers
and a stale bag of fries.

And that's why I'm tired
of your rock and roll
and your country tunes

...and your mindless lies...
