Scattered are the stars I see,

like paper pages I've torn apart

steady on a tight rope, I have walked

and kept a close guard on my thoughts.

Heavy are the burdens I carry,

yet I've always looked towards the future

a sense of optimism I keep in a bottle,

I won't let it out because I fear it'll spill;

I see through thousands of eyes,

I've heard from a hundred ears

I gathered the thoughts of the people all around me

and put them into photographs

Gathered up the thinkers, the poets and the liars

and sought out every one

of your many heart's desires

scattered are the stars I see,

yet we are all under one sky

and one day the end of it all,

will be the end of I.
