Iron Moon
Chelsea Wolfe Lyrics


a dead sun, a pale glow
upon the walls i feign to know
we bear no fruit, no flowers, no life
and we get sick but never die
become an echo
resounding "let go"
my heart is a tomb
my heart is an empty room
i've given it away
i never want to see it again
i go to him in paths of dreams
in bed awake with shadow beings
they crawl inside and wait with me
the creatures here become machines
walk with me to a place of trust
death will no longer silence us
my heart is a tomb
my heart is an empty room
i've given it away
i never want to see it again
and all your words could save me
but keep your love away from me
in all the worlds decaying
is there place that's safe for us?
my heart is a tomb
my heart is an empty room
i've given it away
i've swallowed the iron moon
moon, moon

"Iron Moon"

A dead sun, a pale glow
Upon the walls I feign to know
We bear no fruit, no flowers, no life
And we get sick but never die
Become an echo
Resounding “let go”

My heart is a tomb
My heart is an empty room
I've given it away
I never want to see it again

I go to him in paths of dreams
In bed awake with shadow beings
They crawl inside and wait with me
The creatures here become machines
Walk with me to a place of trust
Death will no longer silence us

My heart is a tomb
My heart is an empty room
I've given it away
I never want to see it again

And all your words could save me
But keep your love away from me
In all the world's decaying
Is there a place that’s safe for us?

My heart is a tomb
My heart is an empty room
I've given it away
I've swallowed the iron moon
Moon, moon

This song is about Xu Lizhi, a young Chinese worker who ended his life back in 2014. During his short lifetime, he wrote some wondrous poems. The poems were about the hard and unforgiving lives of the workers. The song's name is a reference to one of his poems: "I swallowed a Moon Made of Iron"

He was born only two weeks after I came to this world and while I was living an easy life my parents provided me, he lived in the shadows of factories, enslaved by corporations blinded by avarice. He was a beautiful person in a fucked up world.

I see you blame corporations, but not the consumers who make them so powerful. Or the CCP who gladly offers slave labor to the world's corporations.

Fuck yeah he needs to be more known, I was gonna post this but you did far before I did. Thank you

Andy Skeels

Javier

The last part sounds like thousands of people screaming in agony, it never fails to raise the hairs on my neck and cry involuntarily like a baby. One of the best songs ever. What a touching homage to the Foxconn employees.

So Blissful, like succumbing to death but feeling that last bit of Ecstasy before its all over..
