You're Not The Moon
Grant Hart put this song out back in 2009 on an album called Hot Wax. The lyrics are based on a Buddhist meditation.
'You're the reflection of the moon on the water
But you're not the moon.
You are the scent of the sea on the night wind
But you're not the sea
You are the shadows from the light of a fire
But you're not the light
You are the sound of the rain on the dry earth
But you're not the rain'
Sung in Grant's familiar edge- of- his- register voice and surrounded by the fuzz of guitars and the rattle of drums, an organic sounding, circular song and a four and a half minute white knuckle ride. It popped up on an old CD compilation I found recently and I thought it was definitely worth a re-post. The last time I posted it was back in March 2010 which as I keep noting is a fairly long time ago. The album is well worth tracking down, not least for this and closing song My Regrets.
