lyrics

I scan the nighttime sky
Paralyzed by vertigo
As my life spins out of control
I spot the archer with his bow
Whose constellation guards
The celestial zodiac
Human and horse
Cause and effect
Like an arrow to my back

Sagittarius
How did I get into this hopeless mess?
Sagittarius
Was it fate, or my own choice?
It’s all there in the stars
Venus and Mars
Bruises and scars

Do I reach for the stars
Or do they reach out for me
Drawing me in
Luring me on
With the pull of gravity
I realize the stakes
And it cuts me like a knife
Without a will
Without a voice
What’s the meaning of my life?

I confess to the crime
Empty bottles of wine
Purple eyeliner streaks
Lipstick stains on the sheets
And the smell of perfume
Lingers still in the room
On my tongue still the taste of regret

You’ll be betrayed again
By the destiny of man
To be played out
Again and again
In a cruel eternal plan.
