"Brighter!" as written by and Cass Mccombs....
Brighter Venus, brighter star
Brighter genius, brighter guitar
Brighter candle, brighter flame
Brighter scandal, brighter in fame

I stepped in for a little while,
wondered to the floor
I wonder off a little while
expecting to be caught

Brighter goddess, brighter eight
Brighten and bless those nature and faith
Brighter criminal, I hope you escape
Brighter mineral, illuminate

I stepped in for a little while,
wondered who stop sings
I wonder off a little while
'cause you can never win

Her eyes moved too deep
Eyes aren't born free
All eyes want to see
Incinerate me, angel

All eyes moved too deep
Eyes aren't born free
All eyes want to see
Incinerate me, angel

Brighter Amber, brighter Mark
Brighter Catherine, brighter Clark
Brighter Katie, brighter Joel
Brighter Gaby, fire glow

I stopped in for a little while
Turn the other dance
I wondered there for a little while
There's secrets in the wind

Brighter nitwit, brighter cask
Brighter dimwit, brighter my ass
Brighter Sid Vicious, brighter night sky
Brighter housewife, I hope you all die

Brighter, brighter flame aglow
Brighter, brighter, you ought to know
It burns, it burns, nitwit brighter

    General Commentthe lyrics as listed on his website are as follows:

    Brighter, Venus
    Brighter, star
    Brighter, genius
    Brighter, guitar

    Brighter, candle
    Brighter, flame
    Brighter, scandal
    Brighter, infame

    I stopped in for a little while
    And warmed up to the thought
    I wandered off a little while
    Expecting to be caught

    Brighter, goddess
    Brighter, hate
    Brighten and bless
    Curse nature and fate

    Brighter, criminal
    I hope you escape
    Brighter, mineral
    Illuminate

    I stopped in for a little while
    And learned a host of sins
    I wandered off a little while
    Because you can’t never win

    All eyes move to thee
    All eyes aren’t born free
    All eyes want to see
    Incinerate me, angel!

    Brighter, Albert
    Brighter, Mark
    Brighter, Katherine
    Brighter, Clarke

    Brighter, Katie
    Brighter, Joe
    Brighter, Aaron
    The fire aglow

    I stopped in for a little while
    And threw in the evidence
    I wandered off a little while
    Resequencing events

    My InterpretationThis song is about the tyranny of fame or being in the spotlight. It's about expectations of stardom and how much brighter one is pressured to become.
