oh fallen star
as your swirl beneath the night sky
bringing explosions of light all around
you sizzle and die
why, fallen one?
why do you weep?
you asked for restitution
but you refused to take it
you of little faith
why did you pawn the truth?
your own hands have shattered your fortress
child of the night
why must you sink?
you stand here and watch your ship
plummet into the abyss
fallen from your beauty
to get the praises of man
standing in awe and cheering you on
while you wither away
an eternity in the Heavens
abandoned for a moment of fame
you are gone now, little star
fallen into your chains
forever a captive
to the dust from which you came
and your dazzling light
is never seen again
