Crimson Moon
T. Rex Lyrics


The beat of bondage stalks on

Hey little girl you move so fine
All I want to do is melt your mind**

Under the crimson moon
Under the crimson moon
I wanna feel your heat under the crimson moon
I wanna feel your heat under the crimson moon

You can shake your torpedoes
You can shoot your gun
You can mix your martinis
From the blood of the sun

* Repeat

I'm a chartreuse lover
I am an indigo man
In the black of the night
I'll hold your lily white hand

* Repeat
** Repeat
* Repeat twice

A great late T.REX song. Not a fan of the synth intro (it sounds fine in the middle of the song to me funny enough, just not the intro). When I make compilation CDs of T.REX, I truncate this track to start right at the "Owww" at the beginning at 0:12 and it sounds great from there. Marc was making awesome stuff again. Pain and Love is a gothic rock masterpiece. The title track, Visions of Domino, this and Jason B. Sad and Celebrate Summer are standout tracks though there are other good songs too.

Wyatt Podmore

Fantastic. Was released as a single by EMI after Marc's death. Deserved to be a hit.
