about

Written about a lonely alien, who's gift (the moon) was rejected by a cold, advanced society.

lyrics

I am a stranger here, heart broken fugitive, aching for home
Travelling to every sphere, vast as the universe, but I'm all alone
Settling on this world I have found; no one could spot me in a crowd.
Hiding myself as much as I can, but soon I will bravely expose who I am...
I'll show them my art, and they'll love who I am
Ebony Skies make the little children cry...
They need a moon to temper the night
I want to be loved and accepted again,
I'll craft them I star so that I will fit in!

Always been a stranger, so powerful but unknown.
Sorrow turns to anger, I don't want to die alone
No, I don't want to die alone

Millions of years gone by... All of their lights make my gift obselete!
No one can justify the ways they've estranged and antagonized me
A fossil like me makes the little ones afraid
Sick, wretched loniliness, hiding away
I NEED to be loved, but it's useless to try...
I'm done with their fickleness, done with their pride!

Always been a stranger, so powerful but unknown.
Sorrow turns to anger, I don't want to die alone
No, I don't want to die alone

Climbing on up to the moon late tonight,
escaping their world of contempt
I'm scared and I'm dying, but they pay no mind,
I never was loved by them....

Always been a stranger, so powerful but unknown.
Sorrow turns to anger, I don't want to die alone
No, I don't want to die alone
Sorrow turns to anger, I don't want to die alone
No, I don't want to die alone
Sorrow turns to anger, I am dying and all alone
I'm dying and all alone.
