    It's Bird Names-- toiling under its name after a thousand years to proudly give you 50 minutes of contemporary music to mythologize your life by.

lyrics

STAR LIGHT

(You can look off the side of the world
and see the signs of other worlds afar)--
Star light
Falls into my eye
Stopping at the bottom of my eye

All the faraway stars travel apart
To remote space
Through places where there had been nothing
Ever more dissolute in the abyss
A star throws its light --
As senseless as the dot of winking white
That I can plainly see in the sky

Star light
Came such a long way
To end in my eye

There is my eye
A wave-particle in my eye
And there's the space
Between where the star was and my eye

Star light
Stopping at the bottom of my eye

I read in the night sky
the signs of the traveling pieces of the universe
Having traveled at unimaginable speed
through the cold dark empty lands of outer space
For many millions of years, toward my eye
The star light falls in the bottom of my eye

And to think of my face
As up against the edge of this deep space

Star light
Crashing into the bottom of my eye
