"Constellation" as written by and Darwin Merwan Smith....
Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are
There's a million little lights when the sky turns black tonight
Are there patterns in our skies, are patterns only in our eyes?

Or is a constellation just a constellation?
Is a constellation just a consolation?

Wrinkle, wrinkle little scar, count the freckles on my arm
If freckles don't mean anything, does anything mean anything?

Or is a constellation just a constellation?
Is a constellation just a consolation?

We are twinkling stars resurrected
Just like twinkling stars we seem connected but I know that

A constellation is just a constellation
Constellation is just a consolation

    Song MeaningThis song seems to be a reflection on solipsism. That is the notion that only one's own mind is sure to exist. This is evident in several lines:

    "Are their patterns in the skies? / Are the patterns only in our eyes?" - Questioning the reality of what he sees and his tendency to look for meaning in the stars.
    "Or is a constellation just a constellation? / Is a constellation just a consolation?" - Again questioning if the stars are real or if they are just an illusion to console his mind.
    "Just like twinkling stars, we seem connected / But i know that a constellation is just a constellation / A constellation is just a consolation" - Reflecting on the perception of being connected to other humans and reflecting that this too may just be an illusion of the mind.

    All in all a pretty deep song given how simple it sounds on first listening!

    General CommentLove the flat-sounding reconstruction of twinkle twinkle little star..

    Something like, the faith in fate over coincidence. That cliche of it being written in the stars~
