We were alone and on our own, in the dark between the stars
From the shadows to the pyre, amidst the chaos, from the stars
Love, life and liberty, hate, death and captivity
Like a stain of starless darkness, across the canvas of space

Star by star
Corrupting all of humanity
So much alike are we
When I see you, I see me

Galaxies glitter in the black night sky, towards progress, towards death
From the stars we have come, and to the stars we will return

The violence of passion, the passion of violence
The perverse impulses, the savage egotism
The wicked presence, the wicked essence
The thing that unites us, the thing that divides us

Star by star
Corrupting all of humanity
So much alike are we
When I see you, I see me

    General CommentI think this is an existential song. We started out from a big nothing, and will cease to exist just like we were created, be it by the corrupt and self-destructive nature of humans or by the inevitable collapse of the universe.
