Lyrics

By Morning

Written By: Chopper Dawson

Chorus:
By morning the moon will be
upside down, upside down

Verse:
Right out there between
the shadows and my headlights
stand the ghosts of every living thing
caught beneath this road
since the first day it was laid down
as I'm rolling by
they're staring right at me

Verse:
Cold and pale and gray
like a fog edging the tree line
stretching out as far as I can see
Chickahominy women, wolves and worn out farmers
as I meet their gaze
their eyes call me a thief

Chorus:
By morning the moon will be
upside down, upside down

Bridge:
I've seen the first shoots rise
up from blackened ruin
I've heard the lonesome call
of the last one of a kind
There is no way to be in this place
and leave no mark upon it
The joy of life and the damage done
like wild and angry brothers
they wrestle in my mind

Chorus:
By morning the moon will be
upside down, upside down
