"Black Star" as written by Jeffrey Walker and Carlo Regadas....
BLACK STAR, JEWEL OF THE NIGHT,
BLACK STAR, BURNING BRIGHT,
MAGNIFICENT SUN, A BEACON BURNING,
FIVE POINTED COAL, A GUIDE ETERNAL,
BLACK STAR, FIVE POINTED COAL,
BLACK STAR, THE COSMIC SOUL,
SHINING OPAQUE, CELESTIAL FURNACE,
GLITTERING DARK, A SUN IN MOURNING,

BLACK STAR, WHERE LIGHT NEVER SHINES,
BLACK STAR WON'T YOU BE MY GUIDE?
A DEAD SUN FOR WHERE THE LIGHT NEVER SHINES,

SHINE ON...
TWINKLE, TWINKLE BLACK STAR,
SHINE ON...

BLACK STAR, DARKEN THE SKIES,
FOREVER BURN, NEVER TO DIE,
AN EBONY FLAME, A SUN INFERNAL,
NEMESIS OF THE NIGHT, MY OWN DARK ANGEL,
BLACK STAR, JEWEL OF THE NIGHT,
BLACK STAR, SO CRUEL, SO BRIGHT,
A GLORIOUS SUN, WITH WARMTH SO HEALING,
GLITTERING DARK, A SUN IN MOURNING,

BLACK STAR, WHERE LIGHT NEVER SHINES,
BLACK STAR WON'T YOU BE MY GUIDE?
A DEAD SUN FOR WHERE THE LIGHT NEVER SHINES,

SHINE ON...
TWINKLE, TWINKLE BLACK STAR,
SHINE ON... BLACK STAR

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the pentagram when they say

    MAGNIFICENT SUN, A BEACON BURNING,
    FIVE POINTED COAL, A GUIDE ETERNAL,

    A star is symbol for a sun and calling it a beacon means that they don't see themselves ever not being in this dark place and 5 pointed does fit the pentagram theory and a guide eternal is talking about stanic lifestyle
