"Manic Star" as written by Nowell Rhys Fulber, William E. Steinberg and Marie Claire D'ubaldo....
One day is one day less to live
I want you to be my sedative
Sometimes when I drive my car
I feel trapped like a bee inside a jar...

Grains of sand is all we are
Crawling on our manic star
One tiny person in one shiny car
Spinning on our manic star...

Time doesn't stand for anyone
It doesn't matter what you've done
I want to lose myself in you
Are you afraid of dying too ?...

Grains of sand is all we are
Crawling on our manic star
One tiny person in one shiny car
Calling from our manic star...

Let's love like there is no tomorrow
Shelter each other from the pain inside...

Manic star x2 (repeat)

Grains of sand is all we are
Crawling on our manic star
One tiny person in one shiny car

Don't know how I got this scar
Crawling on our manic star
On a ride that leads so far
Hanging on our manic star

Spinning on the manic star

Coming from a manic star...

    General CommentThis song is basically about a person who is chafing against her mundane life.
    She's looking for escape through a relationship:
    "one day is one day less to live/ I want you to be my sedative"
    and
    "let's love like there is no tomorrow/ Shelter each other from the pain and sorrow"

    She her existence feels a bit useless because the world is so big and evil:
    "One tiny person in one shiny car/ Spinning on our manic star"
    (the 'shiny car' could be a statement against materialism)

    One part I find interesting is:
    "Are you afraid of dying, too?"
    There's a bit of condescension in the singer's voice. It's as if she's saying, every one places too much stock in life. She thinks she's above them because she's not scared.

    General Commentbefore she starts singing in english, she says something in another language, but i don't understand her though, it almost sounds indian-ish or something like that

    General CommentIt's actually someone else, singing in arabic.
    When she says "Are you afraid of dying too?" I thought it sounded like she's saying she's afraid of dying and asking if he is also.
    Which is why she says one day is one less to live.
