In the villa of Ormen
In the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle
In the centre of it all
In the centre of it all
Your eyes

On the day of execution
On the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile
At the centre of it all
At the centre of it all
Your eyes
Your eyes

In the villa of Ormen
In the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle
At the centre of it all
At the centre of it all
Your eyes
Your eyes

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre, then stepped aside
Somebody else took his place and bravely cried
"I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar"

How many times does an angel fall
How many people lie instead of talking tall
He trod on sacred ground, he cried aloud into the crowd
"I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar, I'm not a gangster"

I can't answer why (I'm a blackstar)
Just go with me (I'm not a film star)
I'm-a take you home (I'm a blackstar)
Take your passport and shoes (I'm not a pop star)
And your sedatives, boo (I'm a blackstar)
You're a flash in the pan (I'm not a Marvel star)
I'm the Great I Am (I'm a blackstar)

I'm a blackstar, I'm way up on money, I've got game
I see right, so wide, so open-hearted pain
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre, then stepped aside
Somebody else took his place and bravely cried
"I'm a black star, I'm a star's star, I'm a blackstar"

I can't answer why (I'm not a gangstar)
But I can tell you how (I'm not a flam star)
We were born upside down (I'm a star's star)
Born the wrong way around (I'm not a white star, I'm a blackstar)

I'm not a gangster, I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar
I'm not a porn star, I'm not a wandering star
I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar

In the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle
At the centre of it all
Your eyes

On the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile
At the centre of it all
Your eyes
Your eyes
