lyrics

The King of Stars, he has a city pale and cool and grim
When he walks the streets, there’s no one to supplicate to him
He savors its blue silences, he smiles as he goes
He sees the earth across great distance, he sighs at all our woes

The King of Stars, he has a castle on a mountaintop
He sits upon his throne awaiting pilgrims that there stop
They bring their cares and queries to the castle’s crystal doors
And if he deigns to answer them, he speaks in metaphors

The King of Stars, he has a book where everything’s made clear
The paths of all the planets, the passing of the years
He reads it under coal-black skies of comets streaking bright
And within him there’s a longing for a breath of colored light
