Problems with Exploration

Although we know what's behind a star

part of us doesn't want to

ignorance was the Mayan word for sky

they thought stars were their ancestors

breathing in the afterlife

for years we thought if we lift a star

we'd see our kids buried in snowdrift

their neon jackets sticking out

stars became our paranoid dream for years

we blew coke and stared directly at the stars

saying shit like O yeah they're awful bright

that's our way of mourning for the stars
