about

This song is about the complexities that we manifest. We make to do lists, and over organize to simplify our lives, and to what end. This is about stepping back and looking at a larger picture every so often to get grounded again.

lyrics

I saw the scattering of stars, and whispered at them given names
I read a book when i was young, said even stars they go away
Apparently they are so far, and a beam of light doesn’t need a name
And now we look up in the sky, and trails of light with given names

There was a time when it was hard, and people lived a different day
We say that as if we were there,
But it’s in our songs so its not the case
And which comes first the need for change
Or the subdivision of our fate,
And now we look up in the sky, at trails of light with given names

Well the pioneers they had their day,
Just the path ahead and their given names
They forgot to write the reasons down,
Or lost the books along the way
Cause i looked at every single page
And only learned that stars go away
And now we look up in the sky, at trails of light with given names.
