Like a star, booming in the sky



Nae spirit child could e’er say wi’ such Buddha brevity,
                      Daddy, I can’t believe I’m real
    Like a star, booming in the sky, I watched him fly
                         An exclamation of joy

                                          Me oh my!

             Ne’er pure child o’ creation could bett’r say
                      Wi’ such nihilistic fantasy
                                  Watch me fly
            Like a butterfly fluttering by, I watched him fly

                                          Me oh my!

                      Nae wan child could e’er say
                  Wi’ such sweet an’ soulful simplicity
                       Daddy, I can’t believe I’m real
                    I’m like a star, booming in the sky

                                          Me oh my!

                                    But what is real?
                                      Don’t even try
                             For truth is only in the eye
                         Of the Watch me fly beholder

                                         Me oh my!
