It's no secret that the stars
Are falling from the sky
It's no secret that our world
Is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes
Eclipsed by a moon
You know, I don't see you
When she walks in the room

It's no secret that a friend
Is someone who lets you help
It's no secret that a liar
Won't believe anyone else
They say a secret is something
You tell another person
So I'm telling you, child

And I will shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky
Tonight

A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's not secret at all

It's no secret a conscience
Can sometimes be a pest
It's no secret ambition
Bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal
Every poet is a thief
I'll kill their inspiration
And sing about the grief

Oh, I shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky
Tonight

A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's not secret at all

Oh, this time you've gone to far
This time you've gone to far
I told ya
I told ya
I told ya

Oh, I shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky
Tonight

Oh, I shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky
Tonight

A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's not secret at all

It's no secret that the stars
Are falling from the sky
The universe exploding
Under one man's lie
Look, I got to go
Yeah, I'm running out of change
There's a lot of things
If I could, I'd rearrange
