What The Moon Has Done

The title track of our upcoming release, What The Moon Has Done. Word and music copyright 2011 Robert Rial.


Well I can't see
My eyes are shifting shape
Thickening hair along my nape
I'm down on all fours
and my nails are diggin' in the hardwood floor

I've been thinkin' strange thoughts like in a dream--
Opening my mouth to scream
But all that comes out is a howl
Spit is hangin' from my jowls

What's happening?
What The Moon Has Done To Me

More thickening fur around the nape
More bloody thoughts I can't escape
From what I'm turning into
I probably need a breath mint too

Outside, out back, out on the lawn
All my human features gone
Diggin' a hole and lying down
Chewed up bones are all around

What's happening
What The Moon Has Done To Me
