Blinding shining star You won't see so far Know what can't be shown Feel what can't be known You were an isle unto thyself You had a heart you hadn't felt Why would it hurt me Or was it real It was the night we had to part We were afraid to miss the start What did it matter Why would it matter And could we heal Blinding shining star You won't see so far Know what can't be shown Feel what can't be known I was a victim of magic Apollo Catching my breath as I bled on the ground Somebody called me to follow I followed Thinking aloud without hearing the sound Then all the planets fell to dust Lonely departing after us Gone not forgotten Long but forgotten old lore In every element of life Love camouflaging under strife Or other matters Minds over matters let there be more Maybe you'll exit tomorrow The sorrow Sweeping you off as your island replies Sudden invincible flowing A river Clearer than all thou might view with thine eyes Why did fire-erupted lands arrive? Why did murderous animals survive? Why did we deserve to be revived? Why was any and everything alive?
