Moon over Marin

While searching for some stock photos of beaches I came across this one. It made me think of the song Moon Over Marin by the Dead Kennedys. It was also covered by Matthew Good which is my favorite version.

Soldiers from the South Korean army clean up crude-oil spills over Mallipo Beach after an accident involving a Hong Kong-registered tanker in Taean, about 106 miles southwest of Seoul, on December 10, 2007.

The crowded future stings my eyes
I still find time to exercise
In uniform with two white stripes

Unlock my section of the sand
It's fenced off to the water's edge
I clamp a gasmask on my head

On my beach at night
Bathe in my moonlight

Another tanker's hit the rocks
Abandoned to spill out its guts
The sand is laced with sticky glops

O' Shimmering moonlight sheen upon
The waves and water clogged with oil
White gases steam up from the soil

I squash dead fish between my toes
Try not to step on any bones
I turn around and I go home

I slip back through my basement door
Switch off all that I own below
Dive in my scalding wooden tub

My own beach at night
Electric Moonlight
There will always be a moon Over Marin
