Please could you stay awhile to share my grief
For it's such a lovely day
To have to always feel this way
And the time that I will suffer less
Is when I never have to wake

Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved
The blackness of darkness forever
Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved
The blackness of darkness forever

Those who have seen the needles eye, now tread
Like a husk, from which all that was, now has fled
And the masks, that the monsters wear
To feed, upon their prey

Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved
The blackness of darkness forever
Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved
The blackness of darkness forever

Doubled up inside
Take a while to shed my grief
Always doubled up inside
Taunted, cruel

Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved
The blackness of darkness forever
Wandering stars, for whom it is reserved
The blackness of darkness forever

    General CommentAnd after reading every one's comments fully, ya, suggesting where you can pick up a friendly bible or bible study is kinda MEH... I suggest going to any hotel and opening the dresser drawer or going online. I feel the wandering stars aren't necessarily devils or demons themselves, but that without a path, they will become the prey of such demons, and eventually will cause others pain and grief because of their inflicted misery. I LOVE bikertrash's metaphor. Also, without guidance or a path (which I guess Bob can supply), we won't head toward a destination, but instead wander around the darkness forever, as opposed to when we're not wandering, we'll wind up somewhere, and our path is in the light as opposed to the darkness. I have a discrepency on one of the lines.....
    THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN THE NEEDLES I NOW TREAD
    meaning those who have gone before me on this destination-less black wandering ground which is full of misery and pointlessness, the other miserable wandering stars, are like empty husk, outside shells with nothing inside filling them with purpose, meaning, and fulfillment. The singer is "doubling up" inside of herself to take a break from the outside world, which she perceives is sending her this grief... she feels that she will get relief inside of herself, when in fact, the real pain is inside, and she feels that this is "cruel", that she is being "taunted".... but the true relief is after dealing with the pain that is truly a result of perceiving things incorrectly or pursuing the wrong things, all things which can be fixed inside.
