lyrics

Galaxy Child

I painted her eyes black and we painted hallways blue
Talkin’ bout all the monster we’d killed
with bloodstained pride

She drowned as sea
And I was buried alive
Trynna find our way to the surface

Rings of Saturn hang around my neck
And the cosmos is dripping from her bones
And there’s a universe between her ears
And I wanna learn it all

She is starry eyed
She is starry eyed
Have you met her? Have you seen her?
The galaxy child?
She is starry eyed in the black of night

She comes from a place where the rain seeps into your skin
She comes from a place where the air you breath is thin
And her Daddy’s just a paper cut-out

Told us they would fix us by locking us away
But we are so much more than what they say
Cause I am destruction
And she is absolution
Together we burn brighter than the sun

Stars are quaking on my forearms
and the nebula is caught up in her teeth
and there’s a universe beneath her ribcage
and I wanna learn it all

She is starry eyed
She is starry eyed
Have you met her? Have you seen her?
The galaxy child?
She is starry eyed in the black of night

Forgive me for my sensitivity
I am an alien trapped on the ground
Forgive me for my adoration
Your planetary face makes me feel safe

She is starry eyed
She is starry eyed
Have you met her? Have you seen her?
The galaxy child?
She is starry eyed

You are starry eyed
You are starry eyed
Has anyone ever told you you’re a child of the sky?
You are starry eyed
