Over the Moon

Last night I had a dream
I found myself in a desert called Cyberland. It was hot.
My canteen had spurng a leak and I was thirsty.
Out of the abyss walked a cow - Elsi. I asked if she had anything to drink.
She said, "I'm forbidden to produce milk. In
Cyberland, we only drink ... Diet Coke (Diet Coke, Diet Coke, Diet Coke, Diet Coke).
She said, "Only thing to do is jump over the moon."
They've closed everything real down ...
like barns and troughs and performance spaces ...
and replaced it all with lies and
rules and virtual life (Life, life, life).
But there is a way out..."

Leap of faith, leap of faith
Leap of faith, leap of faith
"Only thing to do is jump over the moon"
Leap of faith, leap of faith
Leap of faith, leap of faith

I gotta get outta here
It's like I'm being tied to the hood of a yellow rental truck,
being packed in with fertilizer and fuel oil, pushed over a
cliff by a suicidal Mickey Mouse.

I've gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta Gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta ...
Gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta
Find a way to jump over the moon
Only thing to do is jump over the moon
Leap of faith, leap of faith
Leap of faith, leap of faith

Then a little bulldog entered.
His name (we have learned) was Benny.
And although he once had
Principles, he abandoned them to live as a lap dog
To a wealthy daughter of the revolution.
1,2,3, "That's bull," he said.
"Ever since the cat took up the fiddle that cow's been jumpy
The dish and the spoon were evicted from the table and eloped
She's had trouble with her milk and that moon ever since.
Maybe it's a female thing, 'cause who'd wanna leave
Cyberland anyway? Walls ain't so bad.
The dish and the spoon for instance, they're down on their luck,
they come knockin' on
my doghouse door.
And I say 'Not in my backyard, utensils!
Go back to China'!" Be De Bah!
"The only way out is up" Elsie whispered to me
"A leap of faith. Still thirsty?"
PARCHED (parched, parched, parched, parched)
"Have some milk"
And I lowered myself beneath her swollen udder
and I sucked the sweetest milk I had ever tasted
"Climb on board" she said.
And as a harvest moon rose over Cyberland
We reared back
We sprang into a gallop
Leaping out of orbit!

I awoke singing

Leap of faith, leap of faith
Leap of faith, leap of faith
Only thing to do
Only thing to do is jump
Only thing to do is jump over the moon
Only thing to do is jump over the moon
Over the moon
Over the ... Moooooooo
