"Dead Stars" as written by and Simonsson Eskil....
We find our songs
In fashion magazines
We read the story
In the morning paper

I touch their hearts
And they touch my skin
I'm on your screen
And you are just so wide

Put us on display for everyone to see
We write the words for all to understand

Though I get my kicks
It's slowly wasting me
Don't try to be an artist
I try to be a man

Dead stars still burn
Dead still stars burn

We find ourselves
In pictures on the net
Blinded by science
Addicted to devotion

I'm in your hold
Eager to abuse
My favourite game
I suffer from misuse

I just want to know
The man in front of them
To read their minds
For me to understand

Though I get my kicks
It's slowly wasting me
Don't try to be an artist
I try to be a man

    General Commenti think this song is about being famous and being admired. although the chorus can be taken literally (as in stars in the sky), i think it might mean stars as in, movie stars, etc., and even though they are dead, their influences are still here.

    run on sentence, much? >.>

    nonetheless, a good song.

    General CommentTo me, this feels like a song about how we've become too absorbed in technology.

    "We find ourselves in pictures on the net. Blinded by science.."

    It also feels to be about acknowledgement, and yes perhaps fame or reputation. Knowing, being seen, being heard, understanding. Rising above the noise.

    General CommentI'd combine what gothic and dramatica said:

    I think this song is about what becomes of obsolescent people. Technology and changing fads have a way of making people out-of-date. But dead stars burn still.

    General Commentin a live version of dead stars, the songs was a tribute to Gary Numan - for the rest of it, I agree with you guys...
