Alien castles on the moon… Song 286

I spent the day watching UFO documentaries on the AppleTV while I was working. I think the subject leeched into my brain when it came time to do the lyrics. I find it hard to describe today’s song. It doesn’t help that I’ve been in a strange mood, and the weather’s been in a strange mood. Hell, I guess the whole world is in a strange mood. We’ve got it all here. Synths, Cuban and Indian percussion, drums, bass, piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitars and solo… gotta have a solo. Oh yeah, is it also about aliens?

Song 286: “Rain Down”

Colors form out of endless space
Swirling, flashes of light
Rain down on my eyes
Images I can’t ignore

Spinning and floating
My endless dream
Rain down on my eyes
Am I what I seem

Alien castles on the moon
Fading lights in the sky
Rain down on my eyes
Worlds I’ve yet to see

Drifting and dancing
Extra points of light
Rain down on my eyes
Do the rules exist

A wild truce, gone too soon

Spinning and floating, drifting and dancing
Spinning and floating, drifting and dancing
Rain down on my eyes
