Lyrics[edit]

Blind a shining star
We won't see so far
Know what can't be shown
Feel what can't be known

I was an isle unto myself
I had a heart I hadn't felt
Why would it hurt me?
Or was it real?

It was the day I had to part
I was afraid to miss my heart
What did it matter?
Why did it matter?
Or would I feel?

Blind a shining star
We 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

(why)

When all the planets fall to dust
Lonely departing after us
Gone not forgotten
Long but forgotten

In every element of life
Love camoflages under strife
Or other matters
Not only better
Let there be more

Maybe we'll tango tomorrow
The sorrow 
Sweeping us off as our mother replies

Suddenly everything flowing
Like water
Clearer than all we can see with our eyes

(why)

Blind a shining star
We won't see so far
Know what can't be shown
Feel what can't be known

Why do travelling tumbleweeds arrive?
Why do murderous animals survive?
Why do I deserve to be revived?
Why are any are all of us alive?
