lyrics

A BILLION STARS

Skies red and crackles, burning
no prophet came to tell me
I almost died in an accident this morning
no mystic could have saved me

Sun rises and energies divide
moon falls so the light goes out in your eyes
sun rises and it’s another day
but the moon it won’t fall
tonight she wants to stay

A billion stars in the night sky
six billion of us born to rise
and how do we know when the pot’s gonna blow
and when the dam breaks where are we gonna go

I want to fly to a place where everything is born
I want to sail down the rivers of Babylon

Jack of all trades but a master of nothing
black was a slave and the vultures they’re circling
but the weak they keep stirring
so no one gets to eat today
still looking for a direction
validate existence beyond the section
plug in the peeps, illuminate, reflect them
by all means do as you may

A billion stars in the night sky
six billion of us born to rise
and how do we know when the pot’s gonna blow
and when the dam breaks where are we gonna go

there’s sleepless nights to come
when every moment we hunger for some
a teeny speck of dust can blind these eyes
a tiny tick that sucks it's way to paradise
