I'd have to guess this song is about near-death experiences. Those waiting for us in the afterlife were not expecting us so suddenly. That light at the end of the tunnel was meant to blind us, as a security measure, long enough while they decide our fate (live or die), and to not see them prematurely. Eventually, for good or bad, all of god's flowers will find their answer.

It means for myself. Were controlled by goverment and very powerful people, who dictate to us how we live our lives. Also. The truth is no one really knows where we came from, or who created. We think we know, but we don, T. Humans think (or like to- ego) they know everything. On this planet people know who, s behind the door, but if we look out into the universe. We don, t know whos behind the door.

The leader (most people call god) stepped through a porthole he wasn't meant to step through. Since he has more important things to do, he gave demigods the task of watching over us. We are like animals in a zoo in that regard, but we are not in physical cages so we think we are "free". Some of use, like zebra is doing here, question why we aren't free like they are, and are answered with "our zookeepers are too busy with more important things than to worry about the monkey running around earth behind a door the zookeepers accidentally opened and then couldn't close.

I think one possibility is that the uncertainty of how anything can turn out for anyone could be ascribed "to the stars". Sort of like the astrologers do.
The opening stanza mentions "we" and I take that to suggest it's about a pair of lovers at some early point in their relationship who are seeking insight as to where their love will take them.
The second stanza could mean a lot of things, but I think it's saying we humans ascribe too much meaning to external things and that the answers are within us all, yet aren't immediately observable. As long as the lovers keep their hopes and guidance as lofty as the stars, then at least they are headed the right way. Sort of how the ancient mariners were guided by the stars.
The third stanza is explaining the bewilderment the lovers experience when they discover they've had the answers all along, but they are concerned for how much time they have left as mortals. The unwatched men could be whatever fate befalls them which ends their existence as corporeal beings and transcends them to a higher one - although they don't want to rush that event because they enjoy their newly-founded love. I suppose the message is to not rush through life and exist in the moment. After all, the flower lives that way.
The song begins in such a way as to sound like a song about two sweethearts remembering the old days - when they first fell in love. That hooked me back when it debuted back in the early 1980's. It's a very good song - one which should have launched Zebra into a prolific career. Nonetheless, we are blessed to have such a timeless song to listen to.
