Left Alone
Darkseed Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

A shining star it sinks
and spreads it's last silver rays
A short glance and then escape
to universal spheres
The last sinking star leaving us
and with it the last remaining truth
Mankind stained itself with sin
Wisdom changed to cold, we hunted everything
The last fleeing star says good-bye
We're left in loneliness
Stars we cannot buy
We're left alone
without warmth, without light
The stars, the moon they leave tonight
God is out of sight
We're left alone
without heart, without soul
We're left alone in fields of gold
The sun, the stars, the moon
returning home to God
Crying about the earth
We're lost in emptiness of space,
we're lost in emptiness of sense




Wounds we have to close
before the last wise thought perishes

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Darkseed's song "Left Alone" are a haunting reflection on the state of humanity and our relationship with the universe. The first verse describes the sinking of a star, which symbolizes the fading of hope and truth in our world. The star's departure marks the end of an era of wisdom and the beginning of a new age of coldness and greed.


The chorus of the song repeats the phrase "We're left alone" several times, emphasizing the isolation and emptiness that the singer feels. The imagery of the stars, moon, and sun returning home to God is a contrast to the idea that humanity has been left behind, lost in the emptiness of space and sense. The final lines of the song suggest that there is still a chance for redemption, if we can close the wounds of our past and hold on to our last wisps of wisdom.


Overall, "Left Alone" is a bleak but powerful meditation on the state of humanity and our place in the universe. It suggests that we have strayed from a path of enlightenment and have instead embraced greed and selfishness. However, there is still some hope for us if we can find a way to restore our connection to the universe and each other.


Line by Line Meaning

A shining star it sinks
A star, bright and beautiful, fades away into darkness


and spreads it's last silver rays
Before it disappears, it shares one last glimpse of its brilliance


A short glance and then escape
In a moment, it's gone, escaping from our view


to universal spheres
It joins the rest of the universe, far beyond our reach


The last sinking star leaving us
The final glimmer of hope fading away


and with it the last remaining truth
Leaving us only with uncertainty and doubt


Mankind stained itself with sin
Humanity has caused its own downfall through its wickedness


Wisdom changed to cold, we hunted everything
Our pursuit of knowledge has turned us callous, causing us to destroy everything in our path


The last fleeing star says good-bye
Our last hope leaves us, bidding us farewell


We're left in loneliness
We are now alone, without any companionship


Stars we cannot buy
We cannot purchase the beauty and glow of the stars


We're left alone without warmth, without light
We are now in darkness, shivering in coldness


The stars, the moon they leave tonight
All the celestial bodies are vanishing, leaving us to fend for ourselves


God is out of sight
Even God seems to have abandoned us


We're left alone without heart, without soul
Without any emotions or spirit, we are adrift


We're left alone in fields of gold
Even in the midst of plenty, we are still desolate


The sun, the stars, the moon returning home to God
The objects of our worship are leaving us, returning to their divine abode


Crying about the earth
We are remorseful for the damage we caused to our planet


We're lost in emptiness of space,
We are now adrift in space, with nowhere to go


we're lost in emptiness of sense
We have lost all sense of purpose and meaning


Wounds we have to close
We must heal from our wounds if we are to survive


before the last wise thought perishes
Before all intelligence and reasoning ceases to exist
