New Moon on Monday Lyrics

Play "New Moon on Monday"
on Amazon Music

Shake up the picture the lizard mixture
With your dance on the eventide
You got me coming up with answers
All of which I deny.

I said it again but could I please re-phrase it
Maybe I can catch a ride
I couldn’t really put it much...

    It's about the second coming of or just the coming of a Christ like figure. The lyrics are esoteric and symbolic. The coded message is for the character to whom they are speaking to. The New Moon on Monday is a reference to an astronomical and week day alignment that creates a deeply emotional and caring characterist in the individual. Do to the compounding effect of Moon energy, since Monday is the day of the moon and the moon is in a conjunction with the Sun which darkens the face and represents a more emotional state. It's a lonely Satellite. The satellite refers to a little Saturn. A cold day is a winter day.Saturn is a Winter planet and rules the sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is the sign the biblical Jesus/messiah character was born in. Jesus was killed on a full moon.

    This is in reference to the apostles being asked if they knew Jesus during his crucifixion and Peter denied knowing him 3 times before the Sun came up/ or the rooster crowed. Its about humanities regret of denial and wanting to take it back and stand up for their savior/friend who stood for them.

    Breaking away with the beast of both worlds...
    I'll let you guys look at the lyrics from this point of view and see how you interpret the rest of the details and codes.

    The music industry is run by the occult masters that create these coded poems and have the artists bring them to life with their musical talent and artistry. It's an emotional rhythmic ritual that has a esoteric purpose planed by elite master magicians. They are begging God for forgiveness of their sins by showing that they are valuable by creating a massive feeling for God to experience through all who experience the piece of art.

    This isn't my interpretation this comes directly from the boys, it's about Revolution and freedom and liberty.

    The lyrics of "new moon on Monday" are about some guy waiting for his girlfriends menstrual period to end, so that they can "firedance through the night". "I couldn’t really put it much plainer" and "light my torch and wave it ..." are to phrases taken from the lyrics, which underline clearly the ambiguity of the entire text.

    Further the phrase "new moon" stands really often for the beginning of a new phase. especially in interpersonal relationships.

    I'm not a native speaker of the English language, but even for me it seems clear, that this song is about the waiting time for sex.

    >>hello dear editors of my text .. I'm, as I mentioned before, no native speaker of the English language .. So please don't hesitate to delete parts of my interpretation in case of striking mistakes, which I possibly made. Thank you :)<<

    Well, the VIDEO was about overthrowing dictatorship, but the lyrics outside of that context seem to be about a guy waiting for his girlfriend's "time la luna" (i.e., that time of the month) to be over, so he can "catch a ride" and they can "fire dance through the night".

    I think it's about overthing a dictatorship, "Shake up the picture, the lizard mixture." New Moon on Monday is the new government.
