lyrics

STEALING STARS

Now that the monsters are known,
and the river's as dry as a bone,
We gotta steal away the stars,
pack them in our cars and drive away.
Over the oceans,
we take our devotions
we know that we gotta go.
Over the oceans,
alive with emotions,
we know that we do not owe them
for a century of lies and greed,
an easy chair made of deceit.
It's easy when you start,
it's easy when you start
to lie and cheat.

And they think that when they close their eyes
that no one else can see...

That ghosts glide from the grave
The Sleepless souls of the brave.
"Look alive, look what we gave."

Oh, how the monster has grown,
yet devoured by one of its own.
They get to steal away the land,
to build on shifting sands,
and hide away.

And they think that when they close their eyes
that no one else can see...

But without our devotion,
adrift on the ocean
they'll have no place to go.
With no stars to guide them,
they'll rip and divid,
they'll turn on their very own...

As ghosts glide from the grave
The sleepless Souls of the Brave.
"Look alive, look what we gave."
Yeah, ghosts glide from the grave
The restless Souls of the Brave.
"Look alive, look what we gave."

You do a bitter wrong,
you do a bitter wrong,
you do a bitter wrong,
you do a bitter wrong.

...and when it all goes dark,
and none of them can see,
we'll know it in our hearts,
that it was you and me who stole the stars.
