You are the brightest star
You are the only one
You are the brightest star
You really want it gone

You gotta ride that feeling
You gotta ride that feeling
You wanna ride that feeling

Call my name from my dream
Call my name from my dream

You are the brightest star
You are the only one
You really make me small
You and your cool guitar

You gotta ride that feeling
You gotta die to be free
You gotta ride that feeling
You are the brightest star

Call my name
From my dream

    General CommentIt's about LSD.

    "You gotta ride that feeling". As in when the drugs start to kick in, you don't fight the feeling. You ride it. You go where it takes you.

    "You gotta die to be free" refers to ego death. As in an intense hallucinogenic that shatters your ego and makes you truly self aware.

    I think the title is a sly nod to the Primal Scream song "Higher Than the Sun" (if ever there were a song about hallucinogens, it's that) whose opening line is "My brightest star's my inner light, let it guide me".
