Cities killed starlight
They pushed her till she couldn't breathe
From a great distance
The world was a blank grave

But please don't forget the ones
Who tried to see
Everything celestial from the ground
There are surely killers
But someone still believes

I know the damage in being alone
And I swear I'll die before I go back there
And for what it's worth I believe
There's someone down there
Who can bring starlight... home

Now for once the world's illuminated
Not a street was dark or faded but
On the ground was a different song
Generated power and electric starlight
I don't mind burying everything I've known
And loved

    This is kind of self-explanatory. Starlight is God-created and beautiful. The world is killing starlight with city lights and over population of an area. If you go out to the country where there are no streetlights or storelights, you'll understand this song.
