The Brightest Star
As soon as we arrived
We started taking sides
And restless minds can’t leave things as they are
We split the atom (Adam) and Eve
And fight for what we believe
And dream of being heaven’s brightest star
But what if stars in the night
Are remnants of fights where worlds like ours ceased to be?
They seem all right, so clear and bright
But burning with a deadly light
And now it’s ours to lose
If we’re the fools who choose
To be the Brightest Star we’ll never see.
