"Star Slight" as written by and Omar/bixler Rodriguez....
We've paid that shoeshine boy
whose buff has no smile
He spits on your tip toes
and you keep bragging folklore
like it's out of style
out of focus
Harum scarum
we promote this
cover discover

You know your insides true
Better then I do

This is starslight.

    General Commenti don't have the slightest (no pun intended) idea what this song means, but everytime i start up the "Acrobatic Tenement" CD this song always seems to greet me with a handshake and a punch.

    General CommentThis song is about a person who is all alone because they are not following tradition. "We promote this cover, discover" is saying that he is in the right, and that the person it is talkng about knows him/herself to be right as well.

    General CommentThat seems like a good explanation to me. The stars light is his own path. The screamer guy is talking about allthe people who conform maybe? Anyway I wish the song was longer I cant get enough of it. ATDI-SPARTA!

    General Commenti think this song is just about travelling around with no destination for the sake of just getting away

    General Comment"sailing all alone, guided on by starslight
    nowhere is my home
    inside of my mind "

    His mind is set free and his thoughts will direct him. The thoughts he has are of his own and it is he and only he who will come up with his own ideals, opinions, and thoughts.

    "we've paid that shoeshine boy
    whose buff has no smile
    he spits on your tip-toes
    and you keep hugging folklore
    like it's out of style, out of focus
    harum scarum "

    We have all let somebody else at some point polish a thought for us. They've made the decision on what we were to do because you were afraid of stepping outside the cliched box.

    "we promote this cover, discover"

    Discover...yourself and your own mind.

    "and you know your insides true
    better than i do"

    These lyrics are somewhat flawed, where as it is more of a question, Jim actually does say "do you know..." at a few points. The other time's it is like he is directing somebody to know themselves.

    Pretty simple song, great opener. Great cover by The Impossibles as well check that out.
