Growing in numbers
Growing in speed
Can't fight the future
Can't fight what I see

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

Efforts of lovers
Left in my mind
I sing in the reaches
We'll see what we find

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

Slow slow slow, come come
Someone come come come
Even love is goin' 'round
You can't ignore what is goin' 'round

Slowly rebuilding
I feel it in me
Growing in numbers
Growing in peace

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together
(People they come together)
People they fall apart
(People they fall apart)
No one can stop us now
(No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(We are all made of stars)

'Cause we are all made of stars
People they come together
'Cause we are all made of stars
(People they fall apart)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(We are all made of stars)

    Song Meaning

    Away with everyone saying how good or bad everything is. Besides, how are the unique Moby and mainstream Eminem related in any way? Appreciate the fact that this is an astonishing song, and if you thin, one of the most meaningful. Moby is showing various subjects in the lyrics to this song. The main message is how we should perceive our world. The music video shows him as an outsider amongst celeb culture, where the message that we can achieve anything from minds like the "stars" is wrongly implied. What he is actually saying is that we are here because of stars in the sky; which is scientifically valid. Every chemical element heavier than helium was created by fusion within stars, which went onto later stellar generations, including our solar system. Therefore, we are all made of stars. Moby has also contrasted the science with patterns we follow in our lives; supposedly a reminder of our origins. Humans, like stars, are growing in numbers without disturbance or any way to be stopped, but no matter what humans or stars do, past or fate cannot be changed. Humans and stars are both born and both die no matter what, and although we know how both came to be, there are still uncertainties, and we know both will come to an end as one, but do not know how or when. This is all implied by what I consider the most philosophical lyrics I know, which are simple but to a great effect. So anyone who does not like this song has not understood it. If you don't, you should look at this in a mindful way and not criticise.

    I like Eminem, I think he's funny but the fact is that what he says is usually all in fun. So quoting something he sings in one of his songs to make a point is just a waste your precious time. And if you don't like the song the why come to look at ther lyrics in the first place. Unless you were trying to start an argument

    to be the nephew of herman melville would make him pretty damn old... however, i did hear that they were somehow related. but i don't think melville was moby's uncle. he died in 1891... anyways, in reference to this song, i rather like it, though i usually dislike moby.

    How would any one who doesn't listen to techno know how sucky it is. And just because you don't like some type of music doesn't mean that it sucks shit. If you ask me it's that type of attitude that is "shitty" and "sucks" Oh ans since you quoted from that Eminem song don't you think the beat is just to die for considering it is just as techno as a lot of "techno" music?

    ha, its nice to know that you have a mind of your own. Nice to know that you have been brain washed. You cant even speak for yourself. Why dont you qoute yourself sometimes,...and not some one else.

    I like eminem,.....I think he is an amazing rapper,....but he takes it to the extreme,....and possibly to far,....I am not going to sit here and complain that he sucks

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
