Hackett, Steve - Fire On The Moon Lyrics

I feel like I've been the finest fool
Hanging on by my fingertips
The ground gives way beneath my feet
A black cloud descends
I lose my grip
Buried in the mud
Lying here with no relief

The world I've known is paper thin
Torn in shreds my finest hour
A drowning man still battling
One breath rattle gathering
Dust is dust, clean me now
All my strings are gutted
Turn it down

In the paralytic nursery of bygone fears
My old adversary reappears
Still confronted by the many faces of Eve
No matter how I try to heal this injury
Still the trophies line up on the wall
Pride that comes before a fall

Hackett, Steve Fire On The Moon Comments
  1. Nelson Robert Willis

    Steve Hackett & Kim Poor were married for many years. They were said to have had a great personal & professional relationship, at least for a while. I don't know how or when their relationship took a turn for the worse. Steve said that he felt like he was having a nervous breakdown when the marriage was disintegrating, and he was relieved to get out of a relationship which he said was destroying him. This song is about that feeling of nervous breakdown.

    Kim Poor wrote a blog reminiscing about her relationship with Steve. She had fond memories. I think that she still loved him.

  2. Marc Moingeon

    One of Steve's best tracks ever... I love the chorus, very typically of Steve's compositions, I imagine it as an instrumental too. The guitar lines are just beautiful....

    Przed chwilą leciało w radiu, aż znieruchomiałam i słuchałam tylko, kiedy powiedzą, co to jest. Wyjątkowa muzyka.

    You sir, smack the nail on it's f*ckng head. Steve is the Bach, Beethoven and Brahms of rock combined. His 50+ albums blow most other artists into the musical corners of beauty. He is one of the greatest ever.

    Wow is this album really six years old?

    Marc Moingeon

    no, it was probably 7 or 8 years old when you wrote this (youtube doesn't provide the exact date)... it was released first in 2009, then rereleased with a second Cd in 2010. It'll be 10 years this year.
