starchildren lyrics – bruce dickinson

(b. d*ckinson / roy z.)

i came from nothing before nothing began
broke the window of existence and became a man

no sympathy for fools
my star is black and burned
i tilt towards the light
i suck your souls into my might

we are starchildren – coming out of nowhere and to nowhere return
starchildren – a hundred million souls sucked out in one breath

i shiver at the threshold of your waking hour
the knowledge that you seek is my source of power

i live apart from you
but i know the things you do
no angel can save you, how?
you don’t need a god ’cause i’m here now

i am starchildren – coming out of nowhere and to nowhere return
starchildren – a hundred million souls snuffed out in one breath

do i fulfill your deepest need for prophecy?
i am the ruler that you seek, so come to me
come to me

we are starchildren – coming out of nowhere and to nowhere return
starchildren – a hundred million souls snuffed out in one breath
starchildren – i’m the ruler of existence in your sp*ce and time
starchildren – to penetrate your future is my only crime
star…
