Stars

Stars
they're shining so high
above me in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Stars
blinking everywhere
and just don't seem to care.

When I was born they moved
At amazing pace
To the stellar groove
Through infinite space

Stars
they're shining so high
above me in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Stars
blinking everywhere
and just don't seem to care.

In former times they were
Mistaken for gods and else.
But we know they are mere
Balls of gas, nothing else.

Stars they're shining so high
above me in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Stars
blinking everywhere
and just don't seem to care.

They can't change my course,
Can't influence my life.
I don't feel their force.
Sometimes I want to cry.

Stars
they're shining so high
above me in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Stars
blinking everywhere
and just don't seem to care.

I feel helpless and lonely,
Ignored and forgotten.
I'm walking only
On the paths I've trodden.

Stars
they're shining so high
above me in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Stars
blinking everywhere
and just don't seem to care.

There is nothing new, no change,
everything like always!
I'm tied up in chains
everything like always!
I'd like to run so far
everything like always!
Be away from the stars
everything like always!
So hot and yet so cold,
everything like always!
Like my life: always old.
everything like always!
I'd like to scream and shout,
everything like always!
I'd like to let it all out
everything like always!
But I just stay quiet
everything like always!
Though this damned riot
everything like always!
In my head makes me crazy
everything like always!
But I'm far too lazy
everything like always!
To change my life
