"Unexplained" Lyrics

by Derrick Bostrom in


They are not stars / Burning in the sky at night / No roman candles / In astral flight / They are not men / Walking on the streets below / What are they really / Nobody knows /  / They are not stars / We are not human / I don't know the the reason why / A firefly is not a candle / Not a flower in my eye / And so a rose is not a rose / By that or any other name / Things remain Unexplained /  / I am a tree / Dancing on the ocean floor / The air is water / On desert shores / There is a face / painted on the salty moon / The tree is singing / This silent tune: /  / They are not stars / We are not human / I don't know the the reason why / A firefly is not a candle / Not a flower in my eye / And so a rose is not a rose / By that or any other name / Things remain Unexplained Lyrics by Curt Kirkwood
