"Dark Star" as written by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter....
Dark star crashes, pouring its light into ashes
Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis
Searchlight casting for faults in the clouds of delusion
Shall we go, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

Mirror shatters in formless reflections of matter
Glass hand dissolving in ice, petal flowers revolving
Lady in velvet recedes in the nights of good-bye
Shall we go, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

    General Commentthough the song is notoriously reminiscent of drug-related imagery, it also describes what it would look like to see a dark star implode or crash into another object in space.
