about

The new album "Simplicity" is almost ready...until then a sample of what's to come. "The Moon on a String" is an optimistic song suggesting that things might not be as bad as we make them out to be.

lyrics

Many of our problems are just inconveniences
What I mean is these complaints come too soon
We've got the future today while technology advances
and Old Fate dances to familiar tunes

We hear it in our hearts
I swear it's alright
The moon's a balloon on a string
We won't lose tonight
We won't lose tonight

Fingers crossed we won't get lost again
And I heard a rumor, you were looking for a friend
Well, maybe we're looking for the same thing in the end
Although our paths are varied and our similarities are thin

We hear it in our hearts
I swear it's alright
The moon's a balloon on a string
We won't lose tonight
We won't lose tonight

Because a half moon is still full
And a new moon isn't new
It's just an alternate and changing point of view
Somethings will get lost no matter what we do
But we can keep our sense of humor, our logic and the truth
We can keep our sense of humor and somehow make it through

Oh, where does the time go?
'Cause when the time goes, it's gone
I don't know which is the right road
But let's make the most of the one we're on

We hear it in our hearts
I swear it's alright
The moon's a balloon on a string
We won't lose tonight
We won't lose tonight
