lyrics

When the August Moon
Lights midnight up like noon
Out of everyone, might you be the one that
Wont leave me hanging undone

Please don't let me down
Don't you let me down
Out of everyone, might you be that one that
Wont leave me hanging undone

I pull my own weight but sometimes it's so great
Yeah sometimes I'm afraid that I might fall

So don't you let me down
Please don't let me down
Out of everyone, might you be that one that
Wont leave me hanging undone

When the August Moon
Lights midnight up like noon
Out of everyone, might you be the one that
Wont leave me hanging undone

Driving to your house
I see the rising heat
The military cemetery
Flashes by like a strobelight
And in this melting economy
It's hard to be what you want to be
Riots in the streets
As history repeats
Made to feel selfish and worthless
and that's just scratching the surface
Made to feel selfish and worthless
and that's just scratching the surface

Please don't let me down...

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
