If I were the moon
And you were the stars
I'd nevеr change
And I'd hold you for one more night

This is what it feels likе
When a thousand cars are crashing all around you

Don't look back, you can't win
Who you are, you've always been
Never given up, never given in
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
In your eyes, big or small
Get distracted, lose it all
'Til I'm in the sky
And than we all fall down, down, down

Every collapse
Every creation
Nothing that changes
Will ever break us

Don't look back, you can't win
Who you are, you've always been
Never given up, never given in
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Don't look back, you can't win
Who you are, you've always been
Never given up, never given in
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
In your eyes, big or small
Get distracted, lose it all
'Til I'm in the sky
And than we
'Til I'm in the sky
And than we
'Til I'm in the sky
And than we all fall down, down, down

    My InterpretationI believe this song is in essence about the spirit/ methods of the religious cult that was 'Heaven's Gate' (as explained below). How so much manipulation & brainwashing can convince someone to take a leap of faith, whether or not it's indeed a smart decision at all.

    Heaven’s Gate, a religious group founded in the US by Marshall H. Applewhite + Bonnie Nettles on a belief in unidentified flying objects. Under a variety of names over the years, including Human Individual Metamorphosis, & Total Anonymous, the group advocated extreme self-renunciation to the point of castration. It burst into public consciousness following the suicide of 39 of its members in a suburb of San Diego, California March 1997.
