They told me I could reach the stars

That the world was my oyster

So I took my little net one night

To try to catch some starlight out my bedroom window

But when I reached I fell

Tumbling into a dark abyss below

I watched those stars become smaller and smaller

until I was left alone

falling into the shadows

I realized they were wrong

I realized they were right

Though I'd never catch one of those twinkling stars

The world was still my oyester

clamped tight

burrowing into the sand

Imprisoning me in darkness
