Track Name: They Looked Up (Radio Edit)
It was a time of great strife.
The people turned against one another,
their faces covered in shadows
so that all they could see
in their brothers and sisters around them
was darkness.

Once there was an uneasy harmony,
a harmony that took centuries to build.
Now the people built only walls.
The shadows whispered in their ears–
told the people that
only darkness could defeat darkness.
The walls grew taller
and the darkness was certain it had won.
The people had forgotten what it was like
to see the light in each other's faces…
…to see the light in themselves.

Some cowered in dark corners, terrified.
Others waged war against their brothers and sisters,
still unable to see whose blood covered their hands.
But high above them,
echoing against the walls across the land,
a voice cried out:
"I have found the light!"

And then they looked up.

The people saw the light above them.
It still shined despite the walls.
They struggled to climb upward.
They tore the walls down one by one.
It took great effort,
but the light flooded the land.
The people could again see their brothers and sisters
and remembered:
only the light can defeat darkness.

And there is always light.
Track Name: We Are Not There Yet (Radio Edit)
We are all the same
Embers lifted by the flame
Stark against the night
Dancing in each other's light
Holding on with all our might
'Cause we are not there yet

Bodies synchronized
Captured by each others' eyes
Strip away my fears
Hold my face and dry my tears
We can be the dreams we share
But we are not there yet

Transcend the will to hate
Shed this destructive weight
This is no ordinary life
Will you kiss the skies
And head for paradise
Take my hand and fly with me
We are not there yet
Track Name: Children of the Stars (Radio Edit)
We were so much closer
fourteen billion years ago;
all our phobias and hopes
singularly were composed.
We were young
and burned like the fires that forge the sun
'til someone fired the starting gun.
Heaven knows what we'll become.

Nothing known could stop us
as we charged into the night
flying at the speed of light
leaving parts of us behind.
We got cold,
drifted apart as we grew old.
Memories burned and lies retold.
Do you remember the light you hold?

We are children of the stars.
We are children of the stars.
Whether we're born of dust or monkeys,
nothing changes who we are:
we are children–
children of the stars.

We are children of the stars.
We are children of the stars.
Whether we're born of farms or factories,
nothing changes who we are:
we are children–
children of the stars.

Everything around us
comes from the same place.
Every breath you take is stardust,
just like the smile on your face.

We are children of the stars.
We are children of the stars.
Whether we're born of mud or mountains,
nothing changes who we are:
we are children–
children of the stars.

We are children of the stars.
We are children of the stars.
Whether we're born of whores or virgins,
nothing changes who we are:
we are children–
children of the stars.

Whether we're born of gold or sulphur,
nothing changes who we are:
we are children–
children of the stars.

Whether we're born of dreams or nightmares,
nothing changes who we are:
we are children–
children of the stars.
