"A Thousand Stars" as written by and David Wyndorf....
Well I made my fire in flesh
And I keep time inside of my head
Like a stone God, I drink from the moon
But it's far away and over too soon

I can crush a thousand stars and drain your love
But it never ever seems to be enough
Rape my mind and use my body up
A thousand stars, and your love

When the sun dies, I find a new sun
When the bird flies, I call a new one
When the sea dries, I make a new sea
And I can't stop the hunger in me

I could eat a thousand stars and drain your love
But it never ever seems to be enough
Rape my mind and use my body up
A thousand stars, and your love

I'm jumping into a big black void
Just let me sleep away
I can't hurt a soul except myself
No telephones, no broken hearts
No numbers crushing time
It's the top of the world where no-one dies

Well I make my fire in flesh
And I keep time inside of my head
Like a stone God, I drink from the moon
But it's far away and over too soon

Well I can crush a thousand stars and drain your love
But it never ever seems to be enough
Rape my mind and use my body up
A thousand stars, and your love

I could eat a thousand stars and drain your love
But it never ever seems to be enough
Rape my mind and use my body up
A thousand stars, and your love

    General CommentI don't think the lyrics are exact, but to me this song is pretty straightforward. It's about having a hole to fill, a bottomless pit in your soul/heart. It's about how he has the power to do anything he wants, but he still feels some sort of emptiness inside. The "I'm jumping into a big black void....." part to me shows how he feels guilty for hurting others due to him trying to fill his void. This makes him want to isolate himself in order to keep from hurting anyone else. The "stone god...." line I think references an ancient pagan stone statue (similar to Stonehenge) of a god designed to draw power ("drink") from the moon, or celebrate/worship the moon and/or lunar cycle. The pagans did in fact worship the moon, so it seem fitting.
