lyrics

In a different light your affliction would probably seem alright.
Not so black and white, more conviction, a little bit less contrite.

They put a star inside a jar and then they handed it to you.
You did everything you could till there was nothing left to do.
In a different light, your affliction would probably seem alright.

Amped but not insane, a secret Santa, giving out gifts all day.
Put a few away, a praying mantis, vacation in old Pompeii.

They put a star inside a jar and you swallowed it sight unseen.
You became everything you could, till there was nothing else left to be.
In a different light, your affliction would probably seem alright.

Five infinities. A private color, a sound no-one else can see.
Triumph and tragedy. A new prescription. To be you or not to be.

Your favorite star inside a jar and you gave all of it away.
Just like it almost always does, the evening came after day.
In a different light, your affliction would probably seem alright.

No cars on the road tonight
People staying home tonight
Something different going on
A new illumination.
