Thriving Ivory – Angels On The Moon lyrics

Do you dream that the world will know your name,
So tell me your name (tell me your name)
And do you care, about all the little things,
Or anything at all (or anything at all),

I wanna feel all the chemicals inside,
I wanna feel (I wanna feel),
I wanna sunburn just to know that I'm alive,
To know I'm alive (to know if I'm alive),

Don't tell me if I'm dying,
Cause I don't wanna know,
If I can't see the sun,
Maybe I should go,
Don't wake me cause I'm dreaming,
Of angels on the moon,
Where everyone you know,
Never leaves too soon

Do you believe in the day that you were born,
Tell me do you believe, (do you believe)
And do you know that every day's the first of the rest of your life,

Don't tell me if I'm dying,
Cause I don't wanna know,
If I can't see the sun,
Maybe I should go,
Don't wake me cause I'm dreaming,
Of angels on the moon,
Where everyone you know,
Never leaves too soon,

This is to one last day in the shadows,
And to know a brothers love,
This is to New York City angels,
And the rivers of our blood,
This is to all of us,
To all of us,

So don't tell me if I'm dying,
Cause I don't wanna know,
If I can't see the sun,
Maybe I should go,
Don't wake me cause I'm dreaming,
Of angels on the moon,
Where everyone you know,
Never leaves too soon,

Yeah you can tell me,
All your thoughts about the stars,
That fill polluted skies,
And show me where you run to,
When no one's left to take your side
But don't tell me where the road ends,
Cause I just don't wanna know,
No, I don't wanna know,

Don't tell me if I'm dying,
Don't tell me if I'm dying.

    This song reminds me of my uncle who has Pancreatic Cancer. It can't be cured, so he'll die. But he never acknowledges the fct that he's dying. He lives his life like everyone else. He probably enjoys it more than anyone else, actually. This sng just fits his situation.
    And I also agree with the people who think it's about aids. It fits very well there too. So stop giving their commnts a thumbs down.

    Who cares what the lead singer is. Does it really matter if he is g** or a "fag". The song is still one of the best songs I have heard in a while, that doesn't have to do with breaking up with someone and being lonley. I personally don't think this song is about 9/11 because he says this it to, new york city angles. He is remebering them. The song he is singing about don't tell me if I'm dying and the peopele on the planes and in the buildings that day had no idea. It is about how we all make an impact on this world today. For me personally I can totally relate to this song because I have always said since I was 5 and saw my auntie die a slow death from breast cancer that I did not want anyone to tell me if I was dying because as soon as I found out I would be miserable and I just want to live a happy life. But this meaning is for me personally so I hope no one takes offense to it.

    This is a very powerful song (for me), I just lost my son 13years old on labor day, He was battling lukemia and just had his second bone marrow transplant which was a sucess, but the chemicals of the radiation and kimo were too hard on his veins his passing was extremely quick, for such a short time that he was on this earth he had a great impact on alot of people I think he would have loved this song I think the lyrics would mean alot to him.

    Although my opinion may not be well received, I believe that this song (for me) is about America. I can only support this perspective based on "angels on the moon" (our Astronauts from the late 60's) and the lyrics that direct attention to the tragedy of 9/11 (New York City angels and the rivers of our blood). The lyrics "don't wake me cause I'm dreaming of angels on the moon" may pertain to the fact that we are still waxing nostalgic about our accomplishments in the space program from years past (and the international stardom being the result), and as a result, have become naieve about our mortality as a nation. The song's overall theme, although energetic, is laced with melancholy concerning not wanting to know "if I'm dying", and this may be directly related to our terrible financial and cultural crisis, something that very well may destroy America. We may, in fact, be in denial about our own death as a country.

    I think it is about a person that knows they are dying but wants to live as if they are okay so they ask don't tell me if I'm dying cuz I don't want to know. Then I feel that the part about dreaming is saying that they have come to terms with the fact that they are dying and does not want to be woke because of the beautiful heaven they see with all the people that has died in the past. This song reminds me of my grandma that died of cancer in 2007. Grandma I love you and miss you.
