Moon Over Marin

Album: Plastic Surgery Disasters (1982)
  • The crowded future stings my eyes
    I still find time to exercise
    In uniform with two white stripes

    Unlock my section of the sand
    It's fenced off to the water's edge
    I clamp a gas mask on my head

    On my beach at night
    Bathe in my moonlight

    Another tanker's hit the rocks
    Abandoned to spill out its guts
    The sand is laced with sticky glops

    Oh, shimmering moonlight sheen upon
    The waves and water clogged with oil
    White gases steam up from the soil

    On my beach at night
    Bathe in my moonlight

    I squish dead fish between my toes
    Try not to step on any bones
    I turn around and I go home

    I slip back through my basement door
    Switch off all that I own below
    Dive in my scalding wooden tub

    My own beach at night
    Bathe in my moonlight


    There will always be a moon over Marin

    There, wasn't that a nice visit?
    Don't forget, a psychiatrist is on duty twenty-four hours a day in the blue room
    Just up from the parking garage
    Drink plenty of water when you take these
    Now you can relax
    And return to your job! Writer/s: JELLO BIAFRA, EAST BAY RAY
