Just some of the names given to the moon under various conditions.


It doesn't have to be a blue moon
When thunder comes from a clear sky
It doesn't have to be a wolf moon
There doesn't have to be a reason why
You have to wonder what is happening
When people do such cruel things
When people speak with rage and hatred
When people put their faith in kings.

It doesn't have to be a hunter's moon
When people die before their time
It doesn't have to be a snow moon
You can't blame the moon for the reason why
We are not foolish slaves of planets
Our fortunes are not written in the skies
We are do not need to follow madmen
Who preach such hatred in their lies.

It doesn't have to be a halo moon
For bad weather or the twists of fate
It doesn't have to be a black moon
For us to wake up to the truth too late.
We can find truth, we can find justice
We can find peace, we can find love
We can make every life an equal life
If we look on earth and not above.
