I was wondering what the meanings of the expressions killing moon and killing time on the song Killing moon by Echo and The Bunnymen are.
Under blue moon I saw you So soon
you'll take me Up in your arms Too
late to beg you or cancel it Though I
know it must be the killing time
In starlit nights I saw you So cruelly
you kissed me Your lips a magic world
Your sky all hung with jewels The
killing moon Will come too soon
I assume the song does not refer to some sort of ritualistic murder on full moon. What then are the meanings intended for these expressions?
