Song Lyrics

Some krautrock, circa 1991

No secret that the stars are falling from the sky
No secret that our world is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
You know I didn’t see you when she walked in the room

No secret that a friend is someone who lets you help
No secret that a liar won’t believe anyone else
They say a secret is something tell one other person
So I’m telling you…child

Love
We shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky / A man will rise, a man will fall
Tonight / From the sheer face of love like a fly from a wall
It’s no secret at all

No secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
No secret ambition bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief
All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief

Love
We shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky / A man will rise, a man will fall
Tonight / From the sheer face of love like a fly from a wall
It’s no secret at all

Achtung y’all

Love
We shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky
Tonight

A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It’s no secret at all

No secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploded ‘cause of one man’s spoken lie
Look, I gotta go
I’m running outta change
There’s a lot of things
If I could I’d rearrange, yeah!
