The Stars That Inhabit Us

This song was created for Game of Bands round 221 : "Only One Instrument III"

Lyrics:

What did I say to make you despise me, What did I say to make you feel hate
What did I do for you to chastise me, What did I do to make you inflate
A look at my history, A look at my transcript, a look at the words that fall out of my lips
A look at the places, a look at my actions, A look into your eyes I see the tears slip
Facing the world, I’m facing each person, I’m facing away as you think I feel shame
Turn my back on the faces that hate me, stabbed in the back cause you think i’m to blame

--

We can’t find the words
We can’t find the answers
We can’t tell why difference is a crime

--

Because…
We’re all stars,
Drifting in the Cosmos
Carbon based and fleeting
In the blink of an eye
We’re all stars
Shining like a rainbow
Falling like the tears
From a broken mothers eyes

--

Hope is a feeling that makes us do better, but the hope of a victim is that they can break free
The heroes of our story that we just keep writing, some other difference seems scary to me
They see a difference, a person not like me, A person whose love is not the same shade
They feel the emotions being squashed down inside them, the anger replaces and demons are made
The confusion feels painful, the views that are challenged, the fear to stand up and be called
The walk and the talk, the words that built cities, the resolve to blame others for what is our fault.

--

We can’t find the words
We can’t find the answers
We can’t tell why this life is a crime

--

Because
We’re all stars
Shooting through the night sky
Carbon based and fleeting
In the blink of an eye
We’re all stars
Shining like a rainbow
Falling like the tears
From the lovers torn aside
[12:58 PM] Tomble2000: --

We’re all stars
We’re all glowing
We’re all stars
That shine throughout this life
We’re all Stars
Unique in our own sameness
We’re all stars
That will flicker out and die

--

We all have scars
Written on our faces
We all have scars
We hide inside our hearts
We all have scars
That echo through the night sky
Like falling stars
We’re gone in the blinking of an eye
[Exit]
