The Stars Look Down
Like the fly on the wheel, who says,

"What a lot of dust we're raising."

Are you under the illusion

That you're part of this scheme?

Seems like a lifetime ago

You could look with pride

On your world of dreams



What is the meaning of this`?

And the stars look down

What are you trying to do?

And the stars look down

Was it something I said

And the stars look down



Like the rat in a maze who says

"Watch me choose my own direction."

Are you under the illusion

The path is winding your way?

Are you surprised by confusion

When it leads you astray?

Have you lived a lifetime today -

Or do you feel like you just got carried away?



What is the meaning of this?

And the stars look down

What are you trying to do?

And the stars look down

Was it something I said?

And the stars look down

Something you'd like me to do?

And the stars look down
