"Red Colored Stars" as written by and Gnecco....
Well I'll open my eyes and a new day will come
I'll see red colored stars in the sky and in your eyes

Fast away the ugly, just one more bill to pay
All the past will be moondust that flies from where we lie
Oh I can feel it
Oh I can feel

Red colored stars in my hand are the stones that were cast
They left us with scars, reminders

There's a wall in my way
There's a war in my way
Tales of love that consumed me to hide
From the fight
I'm a slave in my head, I'm awake in my bed
Tell the worms they can soon eat tonight
Eat tonight
Oh, I can feel

Red colored stars in my hands are the stones that were cast
They left us with scars, reminders
Oh, Can you feel it?
Oh, Can you feel it?

Sleep
There's a wall in my way
There's a war in my way
Sleep
There's a wall in my way
There's a war in my way

Start our cars and be around, there's room enough for you and me
When the sun comes up we'll leave them down and stare into the dream

Red colored stars in my hands are the stones that were cast
They left us with scars, reminders

Oh, I can feel it

    General CommentAnother excellent peice! I love Jimmy Gnecco! I don't care if music critics (*cough* AMG) debunk Ours for trying to imitate Jeff Buckley. Yes Jeff Buckley is a musical god, but both are very tallented bands, and even if they do sound a little similar, that's no reason to put them down. I don't care if they claim he's a poser. His songs have as much meaning and potential as any one of Jeff Buckley's songs, and if Ours had been there before him, they would have been praising him instead. It's just a timing isue. If you're reading this and you haven't heard any song buy ours, except there one hit, sometimes, you need to check them out as soon as you can.

    General CommentI would like to take a stab at the symbolism and meaning in Red Colored Stars. Bear with me.
    This song is sung in the first person perspective of America During the Cold War.
    First, the meaning behind the mentioned Red Colored Stars. I am thinking that these are representation of communism. Accusing an american of being communist during the cold war are like stones. These stones left scars upon our culture, upon specific people whose lives were ruined by mindless finger pointing and hate for cultures not of our own.
    It is sung "I'm a slave in my head, I'm awake in my bed". Our culture consisted of slaves to the idea that communism is wrong and democracy is the god-given rightful path. War was immenent upon several occasions, it was in america's way, interrupting our sleep and comfort. I (america) can feel it!
    Tell me what you think, certainly this song can be taken many ways.

    General Commentumm.... just wondering, is the Precious cd as good as the distorted lullabies cd? I've noticed that not many people write stuff on the songs on this cd, just wondering.
