Of Stars, Snakes & Ladders

from Of Stars, Snakes & Ladders EP by Thomas Truax

Full Moon Music Club exclusive


I don't think I can make it to the bar tonight
I have been distracted by this star tonight
And I am drunk on a light from a past time
That may have already had its last time

And there's a mysterious ladder between us in which her past time and my prime time, well…
They are the same

I wish I were a snake
I like the way they move
They wind through the water
With such hypnotic grace

They're the same on the grass
I'd like to move that way
I'd move that way through space
Up that ladder through space
To be with my star

"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'.
