Wormwood Star

from Farewell Plutonia by The Contrarian



The Wormwood Star is the Third Trumpet of Revelation.

"And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."

This song is about an equally apocalyptic relationship.


Wormwood Star

Seven long years we tried
Caught up in the underside
You made the break
I made the fool
Count the missteps in the Golden Rule

Always off
It’s a tragic thing
Always off
It’s the only thing

You were taken by the years
Go out and ramble, and you found your tears
Hear you whisper out his name
I’ve forgotten now just who to blame

Always off
It’s a tragic thing
Always off
It’s the only thing
