Originally called Mind Control, Fate of the Stars is one of the songs played at Tally Hall's residency shows at Union Hall in February 2008. It was very well received, but considered a complex song. When asked after a concert about its status, they said "some songs" need to be experienced through studio recording first. By interrogation at the Ithaca show on March 5th, it was revealed that it was recorded in some form, but the title had changed to Fate of the Stars. It was supposedly recorded in 3 segments.
Running at 6 minutes and 50 seconds, it is the longest recorded Tally Hall song
To leave from this tale follow closely ahead Prepare to exist by the living & dead Too slow or too kind or too wary of those too at ease Past all the buried impressions of then Sullen drawn eyes and expressions to mend Continued through mirrors left broken to sing and be heard Through when it seems all the senses are lost to absurd CHORUS So the part where we are Trapped in active depart In the fate of the stars No not one who we are No control pumping heart Button pressed mind in art Mind control Mind restart To leave from the present with no source of sound They laugh because silence is never around Ignored and forgotten the past may continue to breathe Feared not a rest by this desolate friend Whose patience revealed what intent comes to send With a stare at a hole in the world comes a lust to be high Above all the dark nested clouds that keep guard of the sky CHORUS Step onto the ferris wheel Round for day & night Lost in what's forever more Complacent in its reasons for Give & Take & Sleep & Wake & Pray for Day & Night to come Again we see there's certainty in What we feel and what we've heard Again we see there's certainty in Expectations all the same
