​Dark Star

This song is by Fish and appears on the album 13th Star (2007).

A naked man, across the lawn
Ghosts of morning walk a carpet of tears
Croquet balls, scattered moons
Drowning sorrows on a sea of green

The fairy falls with broken wings
I'll hold it close to me and then let it fly
Another dream, another you
Shattered, splintered shards explode in the blue

An open door, an empty drive
No kitchen drama, no final goodbye
You're making out, it's all my fault
All you're looking for is sympathy
You thrive on grief, on tragedy
You paint the pictures you want them to see

I'm just a dark star, inhabiting a silent void
I'm spinning in the darkness, orbiting a universe
I want to be a meteor, I want to travel at the speed of light
Another dead star, silhouette against a pale moon
I want to crash into another world

That's how it was, or how you saw it
You never talked, you never listened
I beg to differ, I choose to disagree
You wanted out, I couldn't take it
You got no balls, and don't you know it
That's my opinion, you're making that clear
It's at an end, this thing is over
You led me on, tin pot poet
I write the words down that you don't want to see

I'm just a dark star, inhabiting a silent void
I'm spinning in the darkness, orbiting a universe
I want to be a meteor, I want to travel at the speed of light
Another dead star, silhouette against a pale moon
I'm in another world

It ain't easy, it's never going to be
It ain't no free ride, you don't get my sympathy
You should have realised, you had to compromise
It ain't easy, it's never going to be easy
