Stars! Bright up in the sky, look at the stars
Watch them fade away, it's never been so nice
Stars! Where's the Southern Cross up in the sky?
It's not just on your chest, or on the ute you drive

Stars make me feel something
Stars make me feel something
Stars make me feel something new ...

Stars! More than you can poke a stick at, stars
Dead before they reach us but they're still so bright
Stars! Flaming balls of gas up in your arse
Have you got a light, we'll make our own big bang


Up in the sky so far away
Up in the sky so far away
Why go to mars, we're already
Why go to mars, we're already


from Bushrangers Need Bush, released December 23, 2015
