Under the Moon

After going through Blogmas, I realized how much I enjoyed writing to a theme of something. I was trying to think of how I wanted to start the new year off, writing/substance wise. I have been dealing with some emotional issues the last few weeks. However, I didn’t want to start off the new year with all the negativity. Part of me working on myself is focusing on positive things. So I came up with this theme as I was just laying here with a song stuck in my head.

Everyday, for the month of January, I am going to write about one song. It will be the song that is stuck in my head that day, because let’s face it I always have at least one. I will try to insert or link the song if possible, but will for sure have the lyrics for you.

So onto Day 1.

It is 245am and I, like I said, have been dealing with emotions. I then started browsing my Pinterest, for no real specific reason. I saw my board titled “rhythms of my soul” and clicked on it. I was scrolling through the different chorus lines, or what have you, of the various bands and songs that I like. But for some reason, a different song popped into my head. Apparently this is a lesser known song of this band because it was nowhere to be found on Pinterest.

This song brings me back to high school. I listened to this song a lot and can sing it word for word. Sometimes I like to pretend I know how to rap 😂 (not freestyle, just with the songs). So here we have the song Under The Moon by the insane clown posse (ICP).

Lyrics

I was just a child, but you seemed like so much more

The way you would approach me and drift across the floor

I’d see you in the hall and you’d kiss me with a smile

I never understood it was I even worth your while?

The other kids at school they would hit me and they’d spit

Cause I was just a no one, to them I wasn’t shit

But you would always help me and stand there by my side

We were only seventeen we’d be together til we died

But then it all happened on the ever dreadful day

Somebody tried to rape you and now I’ll make him pay

You pointed him out to me, my thoughts began to race

I took my daddy’s 45 and shot him in the fucking face!

I did it all for you and though I’m facing years

I would do the time just to equal all your tears

The last thing that you told me when I left the court room

Is that we’d always be together cause we’re both under the moon

[Chorus

I’ll forever love you, even if you’re doomed

We’ll always be together cause we’re both under the moon]

I sit here in my cell and the walls are made of stone

I justified your pain but now I sit alone

I write another letter, I write one everyday

I never got a letter back, I write em anyway

I try to call collect, your number has been changed

I’m staring at the lightbulb and I start to feel the rage

You never came to visit me, I sit facing the glass

No one’s on the other side now it’s in the past 

My head is always spinning I’m pounding at the wall

I feel like I’m forgotten no sign of you at all

You’re probably getting married you’re probably getting fucked

I’ll break out of this cage and try to cut that mother fucker up 

I curl up in the corner my body will corrode

My teeth are turning into dust, skin is growing mold

I’m staring at the window of my eternal doom

I know that you are out there, somewhere underneath the moon

Chorus (1 time)

Many many years many more to go

Does she still remember? God, he only knows

I now become a savage, they chain me to a wall

I still can see your body I still can hear your call

I’m nothing but a maggot, I’m locked away and lost

The world it doesn’t want me, my dignity is tossed

And to the girl for whom I feel this doom

Look here

Fuck you and the moon

Hey! Fuck you and the moon (5 times)

[Chorus 8 times]

Im still here under the moon

I’m still here under the moon (still under the moon)

    • I didn’t realize not a lot of people know this song of theirs! The other song I know of theirs is the dating game. Otherwise I don’t think I know many of their songs to be honest.

      • The only reason I did was the guy I was dating at the time. I had heard of ICP at school because we weren’t allowed to wear anything with them on it, but never listened to them until I was with him. I can imagine how many songs and bands that I have never heard of are out there!
