"Starchildren" as written by and Bruce/ramirez Dickinson....
I came from nothing before nothing began
Broke the window of existence and became a man
No sympathy for fools, my star is black and burned
I tilt toward the light, I suck your souls into my might

We are starchildren, coming out of nowhere and to nowherereturn
Starchildren, a hundred million souls sucked out in one breath

I shiver at the threshold of your waking hour
The knowledge that you seek is my source of power
I live apart from you, but I know the things you do
No angel can save you ? how?
You don't need a god, ?cause I'm here now

I am starchildren, coming out of nowhere and to nowhere return
Starchildren, a hundred million souls snuffed out in one breath

Do I fulfill your deepest need for prophecy?
I am the ruler that you seek, so come to me
Come to me

We are starchildren, coming out of nowhere and to nowherereturn
Starchildren, a hundred million souls snuffed out in one breath
Starchildren, I'm the ruler of existence in your space and time
Starchildren, to penetrate your future is my only crime
Star...

    General CommentQuote (from Accident of Birth solo collection sleeve): A loose concept united Tltec 7 Arrival, Star Children, Omega and Arc of Space. "They're all about an apocalyptic future," [Dickinson] revealed. "Omega is about the end of the world and Arc of Space is concerns those who look at aliens almost as a religion; wish fulfilment on a grand scale. I wrote Star Children about the first contact with an alien, but the alien is Death. Take his hand and you die."
