Man in the moon

“My daddy was an astronaut
That’s what I was often taught
My daddy went away too soon
Now he’s living on the moon
Hang on to me people
We’re going down
Down among the fishes
in an absence of sound
It’s the presence of distance
and it’s floating in time
It’s lack and it’s longing
and it’s not very kind
Send it scratching in this rented room
Scratching and tapping to
the men on the moon
Down all the things that I’ve been told
My daddy was an astronaut”
_Nick Cave (Man in the moon)_
