If all our life is but a dream
Fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelery to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me

And then she said she can't believe
Genius only comes along
In storms of fabled foreign tongues
Tripping eyes, and flooded lungs
Northern downpour sends its love

Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Hey moon, don't you go down

Sugarcane in the easy mornin'
Weathervanes my one and lonely

The ink is running toward the page
It's chasin' off the days
Look back at boat feet
And that winding knee
I missed your skin when you were east
You clicked your heels and wished for me

Through playful lips made of yarn
That fragile Capricorn
Unraveled words like moths upon old scarves
I know the world's a broken bone
But melt your headaches, call it home

Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Hey moon, don't you go down

Sugarcane in the easy mornin'
Weathervanes my one and lonely
[x3]

Sugarcane (hey moon) in
(Hey moon) the easy mornin'
Weathervanes (hey moon) my
(Hey moon) one and lonely

Sugarcane (hey moon) in (hey moon)
The easy (hey moon) mornin'
Weathervanes (hey moon) my (hey moon)
One (hey moon) and lonely

[Continues in background:]
Sugarcane (hey moon) in (hey moon)
The easy (hey moon) mornin'
Weathervanes (hey moon) my (hey moon)
One (hey moon) and lonely

Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Hey moon, don't you go down
You are at the top of my lungs
Drawn to the ones who never yawn
[x2]

    The first stanza is basically saying how things are just things, life is not about the material. "and then she said she can't believe genius only comes along in storms of fabled foreign tongues" this is actually her giving encouragement in a way. She is saying that genius is not just something only found in some faraway and unknowable land or fairy tales. Then it's her crying while sending him her love. The hey moon part is all about not wanting that last night with her to end. The sugarcane line is that next morning and first cup of coffee or tea being when he sets off in a new direction towards wherever he's going next, but he's alone for now. The ink stanza is him writing to keep the days going. It's simply passing time while he's reminiscing about her and waiting to see her again. The rest is pretty self explanatory.

    I read in another site the meaning to this song and I want to share it:.
    "And then she said she can't believe genius only comes along in storms of fabled foreign tongues..." means that realization of true love came from affairs.
    "The ink is running toward the page, chasing of the days..." means writer's block.
    I didn't come up with this meanings. But it does make sense and its amazing meaning to a very cryptic song.
