Starchild Lyrics

Musical by Dave Malloy (2014)
Ghost Quartet the Musical - Starchild Lyrics

BRITTAIN (Starchild)
When  I  was a baby
I was blessed by a stranger
In waters  I  didn’t understand
And now  I ’m infected
With disbelief and blasphemy
I’ll never have a holy land

I am ghost
In the eyes of my god

But  I  will transcend
And vomit this loser out of me
I will become the next big thing

ALL
I will light myself on fire

BRITTAIN
It’s time to get out of bed
And be the starchild  I  can be

A billion light years away
Someone’s thinking the same thing
But she’s already turned to dust
And the starlight  I  see
Is a billion light years old
A ghost just like the rest of us

Nothing  I  see
Is there anymore

ALL
But  I  will transcend
And vomit this loser out of me
I will become the next big thing
I will light myself on fire

BRITTAIN
It’s time to get out of bed
And be the starchild  I  can be

[Thanks to melanie for lyrics]
