    GECKO MOON

    The Gecko Moon is climbing into the night,
    The desert’s pools of shadows and drops of light.
    My heart is heavy, my eyes are sad,
    Because I’ve lost the best friend I ever had.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.

    Fate is lying on my shoulders, like a sleeping beast;
    I’ll wake into its nightmare when I know it least.
    I see the living, I feel the dead;
    My spine is pierced by spikes of dread.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.

    The Gecko Moon is hiding behind the night,
    Taking on the darkness, it’s lost from sight.
    Inside it voices talking, they’re all half mad
    You never had a thing you know, it’s not so bad.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.

    Somewhere in the distance a nightbird calls,
    The Gecko moon casts shadows on Uluru’s walls.
    A tiny creature squirming, casting off its skin,
    Leaves behind a relic for its next of kin.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.
    The Gecko Moon is climbing through the night.
    Little lizard’s in the stardust, its eyes held tight.
    Little lizard’s in the stardust, its eyes held tight.
