Verse 1:

'Don't come around, Captain Ballerina'
'Kick Me' says the note upon his back
He sits by his lonesome
No one to protect him
Teardrops stain his worn out paperback


Verse 2:
He sleeps in the attic
Oils on his fingers
Paintings line the walls that no one sees
And pages of his stories gather dust in corners
Boy's got the dreamer's disease

He knows that he is different
Never gonna fit in

Chorus:
Stargazer, slow down
Looking up, but always from the ground
Stargazer, arise
Standing brings you closer to the sky

Verse 3:
Papa's not around
Mama's never seen the ocean
The ceiling leaps at the mention of rain
He's so bloody brilliant
If anyone'd care to notice
But there's too much noise
Too many bills to pay

Worn from all the waiting
Silently he's fading

Bridge:
Fear can lead to violence
And years, a life of bitter silence
Black and white and brown and grey picket fences chipping paint
He's color, he's the light
He's voices, he's a life to save

Stargazer slow down
Lyin' where they left him on the ground
Stargazer arise
Standing brings you closer to the sky
