Bad Moon Rising Lyrics - Creedence Clearwater Revival

Review The Song (1)



I see the bad moon arising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin'
I see bad times today

Don't go around tonight
Well, it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes ablowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Don't go around tonight
Well, it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise
All right!

Hope you got your things together
sponsored links
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we're in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye

Well don't go around tonight
Well, it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Don't go around tonight
Well, it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

What's a Bad Moon Rising? (Creedence Clearwater) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/1/14

This is a good example of how old songs were not a lot of made-up trivialities and mindlessly over-sentimal or over-dramatic meaningless rubbish.(And why people should start going to school if they want to be rock superstars.)

Of the same meme (I think that's what they call it these days-we just said "idea") a mid-1950s song Dark Moon-I remember the Kay Sisters version-opened with the
lines:
Dark moon, away up high
Up in the sky
Tell me why oh tell me why
You've lost your glory

Creedence's first verse (above) is:

I see the bad moon arising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin'
I see bad times today

They are both talking about the same thing so the big Q is what is it?

If people didn't live in skyscrapered cities and could see the sky (joke couldn't see the sky for skyscrapers) they would probably get this. It's the last quarter of the moon before the moon fades to go completely dark and you cannot see it. Called the new moon. The dark moon or bad moon progresses from the last quarter to the new moon. Easter that there are always arguments about is also based on this, the dark moon syndrome. The light of the moon-the dark of the moon. See the movie Transformers Dark of the Moon also.

What happens is that leprechauns hide in shady nooks in the light of the moon if you see what's going on here.

And rebellions, subversive things and bad scenes go on in the dark of the moon which starts ticking over at the last quarter. Human environment bad.

Might as well complete the picture. The full moon is the spiritual environment bad

After you read this go back and read Bad Moon Rising...

See what a brilliant thing this Creedence number is?
