Dark Star 
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Garcia, Hart, Kreutzmann, Lesh, McKernan, Weir

Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission.

Dark star crashes
Pouring its light into ashes
Reason tatters
The forces tear loose from the axis
Searchlight casting
For faults in the clouds of delusion

Shall we go, you and I, while we can?
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds

Mirror shatters
In formless reflections of matter
Glass hand dissolving
To ice petal flowers revolving
Lady in velvet
Recedes in the nights of goodbye

Shall we go, you and I, while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

Spinning a set the stars through which the tattered tales of axis roll
about the waxen wind of never set to motion in the unbecoming round
about the reason hardly matters nor the wise through which the stars
were set in spin

To me these lyrics reflect the cataclysmic repercussions of Lucifer's
rebellion in the heavenlies.

In essence, the original Bright and Morning Star, Lucifer-the most
glorious of all the angelic beings-endeavored to overthrow the position
of the Most High God.

A spiritual battle ensued which tore the forces loose from the axis .
The Bright and Morning Star crashed and burned and became the Dark
Star. Creation was left racked and ruined and in the bondage of
corruption waiting for the day of redemption.

Those of us in this temporal realm are called upon to find the faults
in the clouds of delusion. Doing that we will find the where with all
to break through and find our way in to all that is right and true.

To the place where the spiral light of Venus Shines first and best.
The new Bright and Morning Star is beckoning, he is the Son of the
Most High.

shall we go...you and I...?
