about

Sometimes it's easier to get to the Moon than, for some people, to walk down the street without consequences. There's a film clip here: youtu.be/lj3VPfpI8IM

lyrics

This place on a Sunday might as well be the moon
In outer space there are places less inclined to put you down
The human race, in its wisdom
Would sooner send a man into space than see a girl walking around alone here
For all of the welcome she will find this might as well be the moon

The window lace, like the red sea, parts wherever your foot will fall
Those floating eyes in the darkness see everything but the truth
The sidewalk sighs, you should know now
They’re making little steps up above us
There won’t be a television broadcast, but this might as well be the moon

Without a trace of a footprint you’re just a shadow in a headlight
In broken glass diamonds after midnight
With all of these strangers that you know, this might as well be the moon
